Amita Stuntmen
17 May 2013 | by ckormos1See all my reviews

To me this movie serves as a demonstration of how the lowly often uncredited stuntman made films like this possible. Now Chang Yi, Yueh Hua and Cheng Pei Pei certainly do some impressive 12-16 without a cut series of moves throughout the film. That's Chang Yi and not a stuntman going through the wall and leaping unassisted atop the table. Focus on the fight when the three first attack Flying Dragon headquarters. Initially Tien Feng comes out to fight each one. These are all one or two moves then cut. That's because it's actor against actor. Next all you see is Tien Feng's back because it's a stuntman. Now the cuts with Pei Pei and the rest are 12-16 moves again. I really believe a good stuntman and fight choreographer could make my grandma look as good as any of the Five Venoms. Back to the movie - I encourage all fans of this genre if you have not already seen it to go buy a legitimate copy because you will enjoy it and enjoy it again. Read the other reviews here too - all excellent reviews unlike my humble attempt.
