Movie Info

Jimmy Yu Wang (billed simply as Yu Wang) directs and stars in the Cantonese-language One-Armed Boxer, also released as The One-Armed Boxer and the Flying Guillotine. Wang plays the physically challenged but totally self-sufficient master of a colorful martial arts school. His principal antagonist is the sight-impaired Master of the Flying Guillotine. In the film's climax, Wang's students square off against the villain's disciples. The sequel to One-Armed Boxer carries two titles: One-Armed Boxer II and Master of the Flying Guillotine. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Audience Reviews for One Armed Boxer

At first glance it's got all the ridiculousness of its sequel, with a one armed protagonist, rather racist caricatures of Thais, Japanese (one of them literally has fangs), Tibetan Lamas who expand like balloons to "power up", and so forth. On the other hand, it's played outrageously straight as a revenge thread (even moreso than Master of the Flying Guillotine), which renders the comic excesses all the more absurd. Keep in mind 1971 was the same year as Bruce Lee's first film. Great violence--this does have Jimmy Wang Yu in it--and it works rather well dramatically. Stone cold genre classic.
