Cheh Chang Hong Kong, 1982

Christopher M. Jones's rating of the film The Masked Avengers

late period excellence from the master Chang Cheh, up there with 8 diagram pole fighter. The fighting is vicious, the characters are likable, the mystery is compelling and the sets are potentially the best I've ever seen in this sort of film. Would recommend to kung-fu beginners or vets alike who've somehow skipped it.
