The ultimate weapons film!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: THE ODD COUPLE (VHS Tape)
If there was one film that really shows Sammo Hung's extraordianry weapon-wielding skills then this is it! The non-stop fight sequences are absolutely mind-boggling. They are choreographed to perfection and are so intricate and precise it will have you gazing in awe and reaching for that rewind button! The film tells the story of two masters, one a master of the sword and the other a master of the spear. They meet every ten years to battle it out in order to find out which weapon is the king of weapons. However, their final battle ends in a draw, and the ageing warriors decide that they are getting too old and that they are going to have to take on a student in order to continue the dispute in the coming years. So they both set out to find and train a student. At first the two students are enemies, but when their masters are murdered they join forces to avenge their deaths. This film is the greatest weapons movie of all time and If you are a fan of Sammo or a fan of martial arts movies in general then you will NEED this film in your collection.
