Movie Info

Chang Cheh directs this old school Shaw Brother produced kung fu yarn. The film opens with members of the Ten Tigers group getting attacked by a pair of mysterious assailants. The film then flashes back several years previous to focus on Ming partisan Chu (Ku Feng) who is on the run from Manchu forces. Local merchant and kung fu enthusiast Li Chen-chau (Ti Lung) gives the fugitive shelter in his pawnshop and quietly recruits some of his fellow martial master associates to help protect the lad. When Li's professional rival rats him out, Manchu official Liang (Johnny Wang Lung-wei) not only orchestras his army but fools a couple other kung fu masters including Beggar Su (Phillip Kwok Tsui) into helping his cause. After a heated battle, Li manages to convince Su to joining his cause, thus forming the Ten Tigers. The film then snaps back to the original storyline, where the identities of the mystery assailants are revealed. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovimore

Audience Reviews for Guangdong shi hu xing yi wu xi (Ten Tigers from Kuangtung) (Ten Tigers of Kwangtung)

½

Good fighting and choreography, interesting characters, and an overall fun experience. The only downside is that the story starts out really confusing because there are so many characters.

½

The righteous Ten Tigers of Kwangtung kill a vicious fighter in order to protect a Ching loyalist. Years later, their enemies plot to kill the remaining fighters and their sons in retaliation. The Ten Tigers of Kwangtung is a Shaw Brothers all-star event with roles filled by most of the studio's top performers from the late seventies including Ti Lung and all the members of the "Venoms" crew. While the story is a bit choppy, the presence of so many entertaining stars showcasing their credible martial arts skills is a treat too rare to miss out on.

The storyline for this film is intricate and more involved than the average kung fu film. The action choreography is brilliant and the use of weaponry is splendid. The Venoms are as brilliant as usual. [/color][/font][/size]

The storyline for this film is involved and more complex then the average 1970?s martial arts classics. Despite having numerous characters, this film was presented perfectly. I strongly recommend this picture to fans of the Venom films.[/color][/size][/font]
