Masked Avengers/Comments

From The Grindhouse Cinema Database

< Masked Avengers
  • I don’t supposed anyone’s expecting an early 80’s Chang Cheh film to lack excessive bloodshed. Yet Masked Avengers manages to surprise with it’s sheer amount of graphic violence. Every person who gets killed in the film (all 76) is stabbed 15-25 times with huge spears before their death. Sounds good? It is. Masked Avengers is another Venoms film that fails to create emotional impact, but all other types of impact are included. Fighting is first grade, although the final showdown goes on a bit too long. The evil masked bastards create a pretty decent villain, and the audience is successfully kept guessing for their true identities till the end. Unlike some other Chang Cheh films from the same period this one has a good balance between simple plot and great action. --HungFist
