With possibly no more than three exceptions, I never met a movie by Run Run
Shaw I didn't like. THIS one I Like - it's got the Venom posse, it's got
tried and true formula - betrayal, murder and revenge - that works, it's
awesome moves (WHO GIVES A RIP IF THEY USE WIRES), and most of all, the
villans get theirs in the end.
Works for me.
Credit must certainly be given to Run Run Shaw, Chang Cheh et al for producing such a classic movie which thrills the viewer from start to finish, and without anyone being killed. The true story behind this film is an understanding of the way the martial artist should conduct himself.
As in the case of many Shaw Brothers masterpieces, the following lessons
a) DON'T be a traitor b) DON'T leave the hero unless one is 100% sure that he's dead c) DON'T MAKE THE HERO (in this case, LUI CHIA HUI) ANGRY - YOU WON'T LIKE HIM WHEN HE'S ANGRY. d) If you love this type of movie, DON'T leave this life without seeing it.
