It's not a martial arts movie. It's a mystery/suspense movie with martial arts. If all you're looking for is action, you're going to be disappointed. And it's a Venom's movie. These guys weren't martial artists, they were gymnasts. None of the Venom movies has the fights you'd find in a movie with Gordon Liu or Lau Kar Wing.

As for it's reputation, maybe it has gotten overblown, but... read more

Moviewatcher122's 2017 Film Diary: May (17 movies items)

"May 6 "You've 10 days to solve this and then you will be whipped. And for every extra day, there's one extra stoke." The only Shaw Brothers thing I had seen prior to this one was The 36th Chamber of Shaolin which was great and this one was pretty good as well. It's not as good, but it's a solid martial arts film that's good in it's own right. I did find the concept of this one to be interesting and I was honestly surprised by how brutal it got by the second half. "

Movies the giraffe watched in 2016: April (24 movies items)

"First viewing - April 1st This month will have plenty of Shaw Brothers films, which is cool because I've been wanting to do a run through them for a while now. Thanks to Netflix I'm able to without making a dozen trips to my local video store, which is pleasantly convenient. So I kicked off my month with this one & it was solidly entertaining throughout its run-time. The characters were interesting and pretty badass, the fight scenes were mostly well put together, and it moves at the right pac"
