Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Robert Firsching
None of the major sources for Hong Kong film contain much information about this obscure geek-show, other than it having been inspired by the success of 1978's Crippled Avengers, but watching it will tell viewers all they need to know. A mean crime lord terrorizes a rural area, causing woe to anyone who gets in his way. After ordering a henchman to cut a man's arms off, he pours acid all over the henchman's legs. The two cripples team up and seek vengence after being taught martial arts by a wise old master. It's the usual chop socky nonsense, only a lot more bizarre because the lead actors are truly handicapped. The one whose arms were supposedly chopped off has a Thalidomide-like stump with two deformed fingers, the other having withered legs. These handicaps add a certain perverse fascination to the obligatory training scenes. Best line: "I'm not a ghost. Would I be eating pig swill?" A real oddity, although there are a couple of similar films -- the aforementioned Crippled Avengers and Crippled Heroes have also played theaters.
