It's rare in any film industry that Part III of a classic has the same "oomph!" as its predecessors, but when you get legendary director Chang Cheh to return for a third time to helm many of the original terrific cast that include Alexander Fu Sheng, Ti Lung and several of the "Five Venoms," it's just a masterpiece waiting to happen... again. And it does. Based on a classic kung-fu novel, The Brave Archer 3 delivers on all levels: mystery, magic, plot twists and of course brilliant martial arts action that has always been one of Shaw Brothers' calling cards of success. Chang's heroes live for death while wrapping themselves in their own universe, and at the right time, will altruistically explode. That's what makes this film a blast.
