Very good version, widescreen, excellent video & audio, english and mandarin(I think).
Steffen Irgens
A very important movie for Shaw Brothers and Martial Arts fans, this one is a classic by which others may be measured.

I have to say that the Venoms really dominated and made the genre of the "Kung-Fu" films. While I prefer to call them "Martial Arts/Hong Kong Cinema", this is one of the finest and most complete movies of that famous era.
Kuo Chui, Wei Pai, Lo Meng, Lu Feng, The late Chiang Sheng(The Five Deadly Venoms) are all in this movie, and they are joined by many of our favorite supporting cast members from their other films including the great Johnny Wang(still a very tough guy at 50+).
This one has everything you want to see in a movie from this type or genre. It has some of the finest choreographed fighting sequences thanks to its very talented cast members. Phil Kwok(aka Kuo Chui) is now considered one of the greatest action directors in the film business in Hong Kong or Europe, and from me to him, you have a lot of fans in the US including me !
The story has some unexpected twists from the Venoms.
First Off, Ms.Lee, a female guest star, is unusual for Venoms films due to the strong feelings of producer Mona Fong, who felt that strong women characters in ancient China would be unrealistic. She was right, of course, however, modern trends all want to show us women with heroic characteristics and Ms.Lee's character is very likable and important in the movie.
Secondly, we have a likable HERO in Lu Feng, who is cast very surprisingly as the evil leader of the Chee Saw gang. However, for all of his fans, he makes even a bad guy a hero in the end.
Lo Meng reprises his undercover bad guy role as the Silver Spear who tries to turn Kuo Chui(Agent High-Toe) into a bad guy. Lo Meng a true master, not only was he a great fighter, but his characters made you feel he could convince others to follow him through low key, friendly persuasion.

Don't know why it took so long but it has finally arrived. Classic Shaw Brothers/Venoms from start to finish. In 1978, Chang Cheh did this after "Invincible Shaolin" was complete. It was also the last film Wei Pai did with Chang before leaving for Golden Harvest. Everybody is present including Lo Mang as the "Golden Arm Kid", Lu Feng as Silver Spear, Johnny Wang as Iron Armor & Robert Yang as Copper Head. The story about Hu Wei Security transporting 20,000 taels of gold to a famine area & being intersected by the Deadly Valley (Chi Hsia) borrows a little from the 1969 Shaw film "Have Sword Will Travel" (both movies are directed & co-written by Chang though so it's OK.) Instead of David Chiang we have Kuo Chui doing an amazing job as the "Sheriff of a Thousand Faces" Hai Tao. Awesome characters, great performances, esoteric costumes/weapons & tremendous fu from Robert Tai, Lu Feng & Chiang Sheng. Highlights include, literally, the final half-hour, as well as a great fight between Kuo Chui & Johnny Wang. Tokyo Shock got it right - excellent transfer from the remastered Celestial version, this personal favorite of mine (along with "The 36th Chamber of Shaolin") never looked or sounded better. Uncut, widescreen, in Mandarin with remastered subtitles or a decent English dub & a good photo/still gallery. This is the definitive version of this Chang Cheh classic.

This is one of my favorites. Tons of great fights, most with weapons. A lot of main characters killed off. This flick is fun, imaginative, and exciting...the way a good martial arts movie should be.

It starts with our heroes escorting a cargo of gold to a famine-stricken area, per government request. You can't just take a load of money through the countryside and not expect the Chi Sah gang to take a stab at swiping it. Led by Golden Arm (Lo Meng), the gang boasts a whole mess of tough guys with colorful names like Brass Head and Silver Spear. Luckily, drunken "agent"(?) Hai To (Philip Kwok) is keeping close tabs on the gang, their progress, his ever-growing liquor tab, and the amount of honey-teriyaki marinade that will be needed to properly barbecue Wei Pai.

I don't feel it's necessary to give out more information than that. All the Venoms are on hand for this one. In my opinion this is better than "5 Deadly Venoms". I have seen about 5 of their movies and this is easily my favorite thus far.

My only complaint is that this is not remastered and Celestial has yet to do so. I will gladly purchase this again when that day comes. That being said, there is nothing wrong with the picture quality and fans of kung fu will enjoy this immensely, providing you're not looking for much of a story. Story? What kind of kung fu fan are you?

most 38-42 yo guys saw this on Kung Fu theatre or Drive-In theare as wee pups...like i did. My grandfather would sit and watch kung fu movies on saturday afternoons....i'd come home from playing tennie or riding my bike...and it was kung fu time...
this is a particular stand-out....and memorable for the sheer number of characters and the treachery....oh..the treachery....the egos....the pathos....
while i could list off the actors, explain the plot, harp on the costuming and set design, i won't....
classic story, brilliant kung fu...
any shaw brothers movie with utterances of "but still" in volumes enough to start a drinking game, drunken heros, poisoned palm techniques, and blood shed and death only the way Chang Cheh can do it is worthy of your
current saturday afternoon or evening....
a must have for anyone into kung fu...i mean seriously....if you're into kung fu movies - you already own this bad-boy...
if you don't....you need it.
