Critic Reviews for Duel to the Death
I went into the film convinced it was going to be just another bloody, mindless muddle. I came away not only impressed, but more respectful of the genre.
Audience Reviews for Duel to the Death
Rad-tastic and fun as hell old school wuxia that goes straight to the point. Typicall plot about secret papers, your usual tournament or the like and what not. It's still a fun ride from beginning to end, never getting dull and with some of the most creative and delirious sword fight sequences that has been put into film. Heck, even with all the sillyness going around, the main focus of the story is quite well told, showing the motivations of the two main characters in a very convincing way. You will go for the ninjas, but you will stay for the story...and the ninjas.
Awesome little hk classic. Chinese vs Japanese Styles...exploding ninjas...crazy voltron burrowing ninjas...naked lady ninjas...the list goes on and on
The best minds in Chinese action cinema of the late 70s and early 80s created this very fun kung fu movie that has plenty of cheesy effects but remains solidly entertaining.
