About this movie

The "Venoms“ were no more. After five years and more than a dozen films together, the only one of the original five who proved so successful for the director was the muscleman Lo Meng. But with just that one "venom“ and his incredibly agile new star Cheng Tien-chi, he made this spectacular, internationally popular, favorite. Evil ninjas (who attack with, and from, fire, sun, wood, water, and the ground) brutally slaughter a noble Chinese kung-fu school's students. The one survivor finds a teacher and four students who are ninjitsu experts. The five graduates take revenge. With this strong structure and exceptional kung-fu choreography (from the star and co-star Chu Ke), Chang Cheh produced platinum. This film was one of the director's best of his superheroic, grand guignol period. By any name, it could be called, almost literally, "bloody good“ entertainment!

This is literally one of the top-5 dead or alive Venom0Films in my book. Full of action, adventure, suspense, betrayal, etc. This film really has it all. And the ending fight scenes are nothing less than cliffhanger.

Bad sets, cheesy costumes, and obvious make-up with a threadbare story. It's dubbed with voices that don't match the actors and has on-screen words that aren't translated. It also has over the top sound effects and some laughable special effects. But it also has action and ninjas and more action and more ninjas and even more action and even more ninjas. If you can do old school, then this one is fun.
