Suddenly everything changes
5 August 2015 | by ckormos1See all my reviews

I have been watching all the Chinese and Taiwan martial arts movies from the 1960s and up in chronological order. The running total is about 300 as of this movie. I have watched some classics, some stinkers, some movies I never even heard of and they were fabulous, some fast-forward only. There have been fights galore, swords to start, then more realistic fists, even grappling on the ground, then trampolines and wire work. They were all starting to look alike. Then I watched "Heroes Two" and suddenly everything was different. Fights of this quality were never filmed before. I give most of the credit to the Grandmaster Liu Chia-Liang but Tong Gai and Chang Cheh certainly contributed a lot. OF course martial arts movies have constantly evolved or they would not continue to exist. I've seen "Heroes Two" at least once, maybe twice before. This time I first noticed it as an incredible piece of evolution. I almost rated it a 9 of 10 but realistically, though Alex Fu Sheng is one of my favorites, his execution of moves was not on focus nor powerful, so 8 of 10 I call.
