Movie Info

"This looks like a job for the Masked Avenger!" Declared Bugs Bunny in one of his cartoons. "But since he ain't around, I'll have to handle things myself." The Hong Kong-produced Masked Avengers might have benefited from the cheerful insouciance of Bugs Bunny. Instead, we have a passel of poker-faced martial arts experts, dispensing punches, jabs and kicks to any and all antagonists. Within its own limited terms, however, the film delivers the goods. Masked Avengers was originally released in "Shawscope", a Hong Kong variation of CinemaScope (same ratio: 2.35 to 1).

Audience Reviews for Masked Avengers

[img][/img] [font=Arial][size=3][color=#000000]A ruthless gang has struck down members of an influential family in a small Chinese village. The gang is slowly taking over the land. A group who wishes to bring down the gang meets at a local hotel. Slowly, the group of men starts disappearing from the hotel, most likely slain by various gang members. An auspicious cook is working at the hotel and conducting his own investigation of sorts. The group will ultimately rely on the cook’s findings to bring down the murderous gang.[/color][/size][/font] [font=Arial][size=3][color=#000000] [/color][/size][/font] [font=Arial][size=3][color=#000000]“Even if the pig tries to hide himself from the butcher, the butcher always finds him.”[/color][/size][/font] [font=Arial][size=3][color=#000000] [/color][/size][/font] [size=3][color=#000000][b][font=Arial]Cheh Chang[/font][/b][font=Arial], director of Killer Army, The Spearman, Kid with the Golden Arm, 5 Kung Fu Daredevils, Crippled Avengers, Invincible Shaolin, Five Deadly Venoms, and the One-Armed Swordsman, delivers Masked Avengers. Masked Avengers has an air of investigation and an unknown element not usually depicted in a Venom film. It has its usual cast of villains and heroes (Phillip Kwok); however, it is still fun to watch the story unravel.[/font][/color][/size] [font=Arial][size=3][color=#000000] [/color][/size][/font] [font=Arial][size=3][color=#000000]“When we take a job, no one gets away.”[/color][/size][/font] [font=Arial][size=3][color=#000000] [/color][/size][/font] [font=Arial][size=3][color=#000000]The opening kill scene, the two brothers being slain, the story of the wedding trip, the masked swordsman’s assassination attempt that kills the servant, the two masked assassins killed by the kitchen aid, the cook practicing with the trident, the trident being ripped through the guard, the trusting brother killed by #1 #2 & #3, the sister getting stabbed in the back, the sliding door, the arrow trap, the acid trap, and the final battle that evolves from two versus many to two versus one were amongst the better portions of the film.[/color][/size][/font] [font=Arial][size=3][color=#000000] [/color][/size][/font] [font=Arial][size=3][color=#000000]“I apposed my brothers for you.”[/color][/size][/font] [font=Arial][size=3][color=#000000] [/color][/size][/font] [font=Arial][size=3][color=#000000]Venom films are very interesting and unpredictable. They build up their marvelous characters and then pit them against each other. One thing always holds true, one (if not multiple) of you favorite characters will be slain. Sometimes, like this film, entire families are wiped out. I strongly recommend the Venom pictures, especially this one, to fans of the martial arts genre. The soundtrack of this film is the best of the Venom pictures.[/color][/size][/font] [font=Arial][size=3][color=#000000] [/color][/size][/font] [font=Arial][size=3][color=#000000]“That man will bear some watching.”[/color][/size][/font] [font=Arial][size=3][color=#000000][/color][/size][/font] [font=Arial][size=3][color=#000000]Grade: A[/color][/size][/font]
