Cheh Chang Hong Kong, 1982

Gonçalo Rosas's rating of the film The Masked Avengers

4 - Has all the hallmarks found in Cheh's other delightful pieces of kitsch, both the good (camp, great athleticism, choreography) and the bad (inconsistent sets, relentless exposition, a camera on caffeine, drawn-out fight scenes and sound effect overkill). I found the positives to be spread a little bit too thin here, though, and the choice of lens for the final confrontation was awful.
