Storyline

While Ho Meng-hua didn't direct the like-titled sequel to his internationally popular Flying Guillotine, he did helm this exceptional follow-up, which stars the gorgeous Chen Ping as the fearless title character, who takes on an entire flying guillotine gang, despite the fact that she's pregnant!

Goofs

One character is seen in trousers by the knee and a jacket in a cave and, in the next scene, the character splashes into a pond screaming for help. Another character takes the first out of water, topless and wearing see-through long underpants, which were impossible to find in such a cave, and impossible to dress up in the short time implied between the two takes.

Typical Shaw Bros kung-fu extravaganza
27 August 2018 | by phanthingaSee all my reviews

Shaw Bros studio never famous for a coherent story in their flick cause to be honest usually the twists is just an excuse for more fight scene so the same goes for The Vengeful Beauty a 1978 kung-fu flick directed by Meng Hua Ho the man who introduce the most fearsome weapon ever invented in China history"The Flying Guillotine".You don't want to mess with any of Shaw Bros character no matter how they look like cause there 95% of chance they can kill more people than you imagine let alone a pregnant widow in this movie.Don't think too much about the plot and enjoy a series of fight scenes in The Vengeful Beauty and you will be fine.
