Jimmy Wang Yu stars as a famous executioner who is about to make his 1000th beheading. Chin Siu Ho plays his disciple and from there it gets really weird. I think every single prson who dies in this movie comes back to life. There are a lot of special effects, sometimes fun ones. The worst part of this movie is that there are no good fight scenes and the acting is horrible. chin Siu Ho shows some real talent, but he can't carry the movie by himself.
Picture and sound quality on the Image DVD is good.
Heavily cut International version of the Jimmy Wang Yu Taiwanese film The Beheaded 1,000. Original version clocks in at about 125 minutes; The Executioner title runs at 105, omitting over 20 minutes of footage! It's a cheap DVD, but worthless in content. No current DVDs exist of the original version, but fan copies exist of the Thai VCD on the internet if you know where to look.
