Crippled Avengers

The stars of the kung fu cult smash The Five Deadly Venoms reunited with prolific martial arts director Chang Cheh (who did an estimated 100 films for the Shaw Brothers studio) to make this 1978-lensed blizzard of flying fists and feet. A group of men, crippled by an evil warlord, learn differently abled kung fu (blind fu, armless fu, legless fu, etc.) and go on a revenge kick (so to speak). The film is bizarre, hallucinatory and at times preposterous ("I got you iron hands. It took quite a while, but I think this pair is good."), but features some unparalleled martial arts action. Fans of ass-kicking old school chopsockey should take note: This is one of the best. Dubbed into English. 107 minutes
