Movie Info

Actors David Chaing and Alexander Fu Sheng join director Chang Cheh and the rest of the Five Deadly Venoms crew for a supernatural martial arts epic that takes the action to another plane of reality entirely. When a fallen angel descends to the Earth on a mission to storm the underworld, a love shared between angels and humans offers telling testament to the power of a lucky ghost. In the battle that follows, both the living and the dead will discover that a war waged in hell could have consequences that resound forever.

Audience Reviews for Heaven and Hell

I am as big a fan as any of Shaw Brothers movies. Well, I guess it was their early stuff, I wonder if those were the glory days or if this movie was just an anomaly. Because this was some weird stuff, not in a good way. It was like 70s psychedelia somehow seeped into the water but it was a bastard batch. And why the choice of studio for some scenes when some flashbacks were in the street? I am as big a fan as any of the Five Deadly Venoms, so to see them as the dead wrongfully living in hell seems like a good idea. But when it comes after a strange heaven set up and bad fight choreography involving gold hoola-hoops, then each back story being silly and their fights being contained by bad hell set pieces was sad. Kung-Fu Movies should have stayed in the grimey era. Even when Jackie Chan was making Drunken Master 1 through 2, his seemed grimey and although Tsui Hark?s Wong Fei-hung had polish, it was inspired of the era.
