This movie "Crippled Avengers"(the real name)is one of the best Martial arts movie I've ever seen.

It was a pretty good movie with a lot of action and a sinister plot.

First off, the REAL name of this movie is "Crippled Avengers." I guess some marketing dweeb thought he could sell more videos if he changed the title. Therefore, the plot of this movie has nothing to do with "The 5 Deadly Venoms" (but it does feature 4 of the same actors). 5DV has a better plot actually. The storyline of Crippled Avengers is pretty silly, but it's good to laugh, right? The gore is so fake and funny. But to the point--it doesn't matter whether you believe these guys are crippled or not, they are amazingly talented, they're wonderful acrobats and martial artists, and a joy to watch in action! This film does a much better job of showcasing their skills than 5DV does. No digital effects here, Baby!!!

Format: VHS Tape
The film (aka Crippled Avengers, aka Mortal Combat) brings back the core ensemble actors (not characters) from "The 5 Deadly Venoms." Otherwise, this film has nothing whatsoever to do with the "original." Not a problem. The film is spectacular in its own right. Contains abundant and endless awesome fights. The main stars here have been "crippled" by an evil boss. The stars, with their handicaps, have to develop special skills to beat the evil boss. Not nearly as intriguing and majestic as "5 Deadly Venoms," the movie still delivers the goods. The crippled fighters, especially the crippled "idiot," bring a comedic undertone and overtone to the film, which I found a slight but forgiveable distraction. Also, compared to the original, the violence is more sadistic and gratuitious, another slight distraction. Having said all that, the movie is still a top-shelf classic 70s style original action-packed film with all your favorite recognizeable stars. This is a must-have to your collection.

A five star kung-fu movie, it even has a plot. Video quality is acceptable. Audio sounds like a mono record. DVD version is superior to the video version and a must buy for true fans of this genre.

A one time hero, turns tyrant after an attack on his wife and child. His son is left with no arms, untill he has a set of iron hands fitted for him, so that he can use them to get revenge on all those that hurt him. Even after revenge is taken, his attitude is still sour. Attacking many helpless peole leaving many crippled. Those who are alive after the attacks ban together each with a different handicap: blind, deaf dumd, no legs, and brain damaged. The four group up and head off to aone of the mfighters masters school, where they are all taught there own style of kung fu to best suit there dissability. once they are all finished with training they venture off in order to take revenge. Amazing fight scenes, the perfect story line, and endless action, put this movie up close to it's brother "5 deadly venoms". another must have, no questions asked

This movie has been re-named three times from "Mortal Combat" to Crippled Avengers - and finally Return of the Five Deadly Venoms .....This is a very unique classic in that it displays Handicapped martial arts experts who overcome their limitations and seek revenge on the evil villain who forced them to become cripples .... You really should check out HOW /WHAT specialty an old but very astute instructor teaches each Crippled peasant how to rise from helpless victims to superb martial artists. Must See !

First of all, this is not a part 2 to the first Venoms movie. The original name of this movie is Mortal Combat, but when it came to America they called it Crippled Avengers. All of the Venoms are in this movie except Wei Pai, the Snake. The storyline is good and the fighting choreography is excellent. Chen Kuan Tai, the "Iron Monkey", is also in this film. This is the second best movie the Venoms gang has done, but also check out "The 10 Tigers of Kwantung", "2 Champions of Shaolin", and "Unbeatable Drangon" and you'll be even more amazed at their skills. Peace!!!!

RETURN OF THE 5 DEADLY VENOMS IS FAR SUPERIOR TO ITS ORIGINAL. THE 5 DEADLY VENOMS IS GREAT AS WELL, BUT AT TIMES THE STORY LINE MAKES THE MOVIE SEEM JUST A TAD DRAWN OUT, BUT IT STILL RANKS AS ONE OF THE BEST MARTIAL ARTS FILMS EVER MADE. BOTH ARE A MUST HAVE IN YOUR COLLECTION. 5 STAR A+ MOVIES. GREAT ACTION SEQUENCES, EXTRAORDINARY STUNTS, ALONG WITH A GOOD SCRIPT MAKE THESE MOVIES EXCEPTIONAL. PICTURE QUALITY IS EXCELLENT ON DVD. TRUE MARTIAL ARTS FANS GRAB A COPY OF RETURN OF THE FIVE DEADLY VENOMS ON DVD & THE 5 DEADLY VENOMS ON VHS(ONLY AVAILABLE ON VHS AT THIS POINT).

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
"Return of the Five Deadly Venoms" a.k.a. "The Crippled Avengers" is a weird combination of exploitation piece and kung fu movie, and looks like "The Three Stooges meet David Carradine". The plot centers around power, vengeance, and horrible mutilations. The crippled masters are legless, blind, deaf, and brain damaged. How they got that way is central to the story, so I won't reveal it here; fortunately the producers don't resort to thalidomide victims in this production. Some of the artificial limbs are amazing (I especially like the iron hands that shoots darts), and the "tiger style" martial arts here are quite spectacular, especially the lengthy closing scene which contains some truly amazing acrobatics.

The film is long on hand to hand combat, but short on plot, dialogue, and pacing (not that typical audiences expect much in the advanced thespian or screenwriting skills departments from these films). It is a quite long movie for the genre, and despite the amazing fight scenes is actually boring in places: if the film had twenty minutes edited out of it it would be much stronger. While the fight scenes were extraordinary, they account for all of the three stars the film deserves; the plodding pace of the backstory hurt the final rating. For fans of martial arts movies, this is a clear winner.
