The Five Venoms
Action • R • 1978 • 1 hr 42 min
I’ll look past the garbage English dub and say that this is a fun if long kung fu story. Simple + engaging plot and characters, good fights.
Limitations of the era aside even the english dub has some charm
Tch tch tch *smash* tch tch *coughs blood* - Terrible dub, the exact same sound effects, and high resolution close ups of fake beards. Nice.
Very interesting kung-fu film. A nice understanding of the different styles of kung-fu with a nice use of mythology. Fun movie to watch.
The pinnacle of Shaw Bros. kung fu movies. Great action, wild story, terrible English dub. The best.
Classic kung fu action. A must see for fans of the genre, even if the middle drags a bit. Lizard’s the coolest, for what it’s worth
Fav Kung fu movie. True classic. The different styles/super powers made this more interesting than your avg Kung fu flick
Nominally great bad 70s dubbed martial arts film. Novel concept, plot-wise.
Some really good action scenes in this film. Overall a great film.
One to watch for those who appreciate extended exhibitions and fight sequences.
