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!!!

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

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!!!!

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 !

I have been a fan of the martial arts (Judo, Jujitsu, Karate, Combatives, Krav Maga etc), and martial art films for most of my life. This one (The Return of the 5 Deadly Venoms), which is also called The Crippled Avengers, had plenty of martial arts action in it. However, even though this movie was fun to watch, I found many of the fights way too long and sometimes boring.

The story is about a martial arts master who becomes evil when his wife is murdered and his son's arms are cut off by another martial arts group. After the father kills the three bad guys with his three Tiger Kung-Fu, he becomes even more evil himself over the years. He makes his son, who he trained in Kung-Fu, and now has iron arms to replace the arms he got cut off, a mean and cruel bully. He winds up crippling and injuring a group of four people in various ways (blinds one, destroys one's ability to speak or hear, makes one an idiot, and cuts off the legs of one). These four seek out another Kung-Fu master who trains them for three years and shows them how to overcome their handicaps. The four return to seek revenge on the group who injured them.

In conclusion, if you are a martial arts film fan, you will see tons of fights, both unarmed and with a host of martial arts weapons being used in this film. The fight scenes are very unique but like many Asian made martial arts films, many of the fights look more like dancing than fighting. Still a fun movie to watch.

Rating: 4 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Martial Arts Myths)
