Spoiler alert, read no further if you've yet to watch the film.
I loved every part of The Five Venoms. I especially loved the pathos elicited by the torture and eventual murder of the Toad. Leave it to the Shaw brothers to explore complex themes like class inequity and gender identity by using Kung Fu fighting as the vehicle. Truly a thinking man’s (or woman’s) Kung Fu movie. I can't recommend this film enough.
I remember the first time I saw this movie, and I was torn between which style I wanted. Lizard could clime walls...but Toad was damn near invincible..Snake had some cool moves....arrgghhh the decisions.
If you have never seen this movie, give it a watch..and be prepared to be entertained.
Everyone has heard of it. Everyone thats a Kung Fu lover wants to see it and have it.
Really, my problem is the DVD is just poor quality. Its so you can see it on your DVD player. Its the same quality as your old 70's and 80's video recorder/player.
Disappointing as that may be. This is a Classic must see Kung Fu YAAAAAA!!!! Movie.
The plot has been explained in previous reviews, so I will not repeat what has already been posted, but I will note that the quality of the picture was excellent with the DVD version. Sharp and clear scenes, bright colors, and excellent sound quality.
I highly recommend this for any one with and old school kung fu DVD collection.
***little spoiler warning***
The movie consists of 5 main martial artist taught by the senior teacher of the venom clan. The senior teacher is ill and will soon die so he sends out a new student to track down the 5 venoms to make sure they are good and not evil.
The senior teacher tells the new student to search a town where his co-teacher is hiding with the massive treasure they had acquired in the clan. The student goes into the town and learns its not easy to find the venoms but things picks up when there is a murder of an old man.
I enjoyed this movie and its full action without to many downtimes. Be wary that this picture also has torture but its minimal and consists with the plot, not to bad as some of the new movies I seen.
