Shaolin Death Squads
13 April 2015 | by See all my reviews

Shaolin Death Squads 1976 (aka Shaolin Death Squad)... The film I have is the German (English dubbed) "Das tödliche Geheimnis der Shaolin".

When a ruthless premier murders to further his own ambitions, the victim's daughter (Polly Kuan) vows to avenge his death. While planning her revenge, she uncovers the premier's villainous plot to kill the king and succeed him as Emperor. His seizure of the throne would only result in tyranny and ruin. With the help of friends who pledge their undying loyalty, Polly sets out to foil the diabolical plan. There's an array of styles including Double Swords and Meteor Whip.

This movie shouldn't be confused with "The Shaolin Kids" 1977 (aka "The Shaolin Death Squad" aka "Shaolin Death Squad") because it also stars Polly Kuan and Carter Wong. Both movies can be found titled "Shaolin Death Squad".

This was a good film that I enjoyed.... 6
