did somebody mention - revenge?
27 June 2006 | by winner55See all my reviews

A famous hero is guarding the transportation of a supply of gold and jewels. Attacked by bandits, he successfully fights them off. The Bandits vow - revenge! The chief of the bandits goes to ask help from a brother member of his martial arts clan, but the brother won't commit crime - so the bandit chief vows - revenge! Instead he hires a group of archers, and they kill the great hero. When his son and daughter here of it, they vow - revenge! Measnwhile, the bandit chief kills the whole family of the clan brother who wouldn't join his clan so the brother vows - revenge! Meanwhile, the bandit chief hires a super-swordsman to fight against the clan brother; since this is an insult to his previous super-swordsman, the latter vows -revenge! Meanewhile, a group of bandits dressed as zombies, who were previously defeated by the clan brother, show up to take their - revenge! After which the new super-swordsman shows up and disposes of the clan-brother's left arm and right leg; the clan brother learns how to fight using only prosthetic limbs - just so he can take his - revenge!

Obviously, this is a film about world peace and how we can all learn how to get along together.

Actually, a nonsensical but enjoyable Hong Kong swordplay film from the mid-'70s.

My copy is on a bargain-cost DVD with a second feature, "Fury at Shaolin Temple" - a Lai bros.- Godfrey Ho chop job that almost stars Gordon Liu - almost because he obviously quit in mid-production, and in half "his" scenes his character can only be photographed from the rear to hide the fact that he isn't Gordon Liu; since the stand-in is about a foot taller than Liu, this doesn't quite work. Personally, I think Liu should go hunt down the Lai bros. and get his - revenge!
