  1. Dominic Simard-Jean's rating of the film Crippled Avengers

    Possibly the most entertaining movie of all time. Dao is one of the best villain in history

  2. SlinkyLi's rating of the film Crippled Avengers

    Rhythmic and elaborate choreography with brutal finishes. Clever and neat storytelling. Eyebrows for the ages. Chang Cheh delivers with force.

  3. Andre Flickatina's rating of the film Crippled Avengers

    scene with the rings had me picking my jaw up off the floor

  4. Ghostman's rating of the film Crippled Avengers

  5. film_lies101's rating of the film Crippled Avengers

    The premise of a group of misfits coming together to overtake a big baddie is hardly novel. This one relies more characterization and character development than fight choreography, which is kinda of a rarity in kung fu flicks

  6. filmcapsule's rating of the film Crippled Avengers

    Some of the most fun I've had with a Shaw film yet, thanks to a charismatic cast of characters and an episodic, adventure-film vibe. Packed with thrilling fight sequences, taking advantage of the strengths and weaknesses of the characters to assemble them in different permutations. One highlight: a training sequence becomes a true paired dance as two characters lift and pull each other with large metal rings.

  7. Gonçalo Rosas's rating of the film Crippled Avengers

    7 - My favorite Chang Cheh effort at the time of writing. Expands on the motifs he approached in "The One-Armed Swordsman", and features the most enjoyable dialogue, characterization and coreography of the man's entire career (even if the final fight is a bit exhausting). A bit too heavy on the slow-mo and the corny sound effects, but these factors barely hampered the pleasure I got out of this glorious cheesefest.

  8. waywardwaters's rating of the film Crippled Avengers

    An apical expression of life-altering perseverance and self-cultivation, the avengers are a gestalt of anatomical metaphors in spiritual resistance against fate. With animated, romanticist style and rhythm in violent yet harmonious beauty of choreographed dance, Chang tells a tale of amorality: ceaseless cycles of revenge from tragic consequences in overmen attaining self-justice without the way.

  9. Greg S.'s rating of the film Crippled Avengers

    The the title awful, but this is one of my absolute favorite Shaw bros films. Every fight sequences has layers revealing the main characters' advantages/disadvantages and expands on the themes of determination. The physicality of the fighters not only has a quality that's almost musical but the way the fighters progress in playing off each other are the kinds of arcs that should be taught in screenwriting classes.

  10. ElTigreNegro's rating of the film Crippled Avengers

    One of the gems in the crown of the Chang Cheh/venoms collaborations. A solid tale of vengeance, with fantastic acrobatic fight sequences. It's fascinating seeing how every character overcomes their limitations to fight back. Great movie.

  12. Edetein's rating of the film Crippled Avengers

    Some of the best fight choreography in all martial arts cinema. I actually like this film somewhat more than The Five Venoms. Tragic that such choreography has been in decline since the days of Chang Cheh and The Venoms. Please add the film Shaolin Rescuers which has perhaps the best choreographed fight scene of all the 25 or so Venom films.
