MASKED AVENGERS

Chang Cheh, Hong Kong, 1981, Celestial, Martial Arts

“The greatest part about Chang Cheh’s filmography is that this Shaw Brothers filmmaker is pretty diverse. He can deliver a thoughtful and dramatic flick (THE ONE-ARMED SWORDSMAN) or an utterly over-the-top, outrageous gimmick (THE CRIPPLED AVENGERS) and succeed at both. Sometimes he balances the two stylistic approaches within a single film, as in MASKED AVENGERS, and makes it work. For this Venom Mob flick, he takes a super-dark, serious story and injects just enough fun and outrageousness to make it fit in a charming way. Cheh has also never been shy of violence; there are a few moments in the film that borderline on horror genre-bending.

A team of hired guards has been tasked with finding and destroying the vicious gang known as The Masked Avengers. When one of their own is found dead at the hands of this group. Will the various kung fu killers make fertilizer of our heroes before they can solve the mystery?” (Blood Brothers Reviews)
