Framed with a story within a story, it starts with dastardly villains plotting the deaths of the sons and descendants of the Ten Tigers of Kwangtung, who helped escort an important Qing rebel out of their hands. Ti Lung headlines with the Venom mob and others, but their story is cut short quick, with a short battle. The ending duels are well choreographed, but its the over-the-top kills at the end which makes this movie unique. Also, the huge star power helps too, even if they don't get enough screentime.

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.

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.

This should've been one of Chang Cheh's best films given the strength of the cast and the legendary story, however the movie drags ass in a lot of places and most of the fight scenes are rather bland. The movie starts off with a damn cool opening scene, but a lengthy flashback mostly confuses the narrative and the story isn't very well told. The best part of the movie comes in the final twenty minutes, and contains classic Chang Cheh heroic bloodshed moments. Too bad the movie couldn't have been more consistent.

Incredibly complex plot for a movie that old. Very bloody, full throttle action!

This is your standard Shaw Brothers fare. One hour of storyline buildup, training scenes, and then 25 minutes of fight scene payoff. This has got many familiar faces, and it's got a tremendous decapitation at the end.

Story is interesting but yet slow. Pace is slow. Fighting is average.

I just finished the new Tokyo Shock dvd, and this is definitely a must-see for any fan of Shaw Brothers movies. There's a really high quantity of action spread throughout involving a huge cast, even if they often fought for dumb reasons. No way I could keep track of all those names. I hadn't seen a story presented like this yet. The tale of the titular Ten Tigers was like a short, 50-60 minute movie of its own. It's told as what had happened in the past, perhaps 20 years earlier, by the students/children of the Ten Tigers who are now being hunted for revenge as the result of actions of the past. I feel terrible for not knowing these names but there's a fight about 70 minutes in that might be the best I've ever seen in a Shaw Brothers movie, at least for one on one. The main villain for the "future" part of the film uses maybe 4 weapons, all hidden on him somewhere, and his opponent could turn anything into a weapon and has a counter for everything. Ti Lung anchors the cast in the "past" and Philip Kwok spans both eras, showing some amazing weapon skills early on. The Alexander Fu Sheng character would have been unbearably annoying if anyone else played him, but he was perfect.

Chang Cheh's all out action packed old skool flick. Featuring the Venom Mob and other Chang Cheh regulars (Ti Lung and Fu Sheng). The fights are fast, brutal and blood spurting. Yuen Sin Ho serves well at the finale, kick ass movie.
