YesAsia Editorial Description

One of the Five Venoms' more comedic outings, The Magnificent Ruffians (1979) trades up the straightfaced heroics of the previous year's Five Deadly Venoms for some kung-fu shenanigans in the best Jackie Chan tradition. This tale of martial arts layabouts draws inspiration from Chan's 1978 breakout hits Snake in the Eagle's Shadow and Drunken Master, but under the watchful eye of legendary Shaw Brothers director Chang Cheh (One-Armed Swordsman, Golden Swallow), the film rises above mere imitation. Combining kung-fu slapstick with Chang's trademark themes of brotherhood and betrayal - as well as the Venoms' knack for elaborate, no-holds-barred action set pieces - The Magnificent Ruffians is justifiably one of the most popular installments of the "Five Venoms" series.

Venom regulars Philip Kwok, Chiang Sheng, and Sun Chien star as a gang of unemployed martial artists who spend their days stuffing their faces at local restaurants and letting the staff beat them up instead of paying the bill. Their fortunes appear to improve when the head of a local security agency hires them to take out the competition, who their new employer insists is up to no good. But the boys are being played for fools, and after an unfortunate misunderstanding, they unite with their former adversary to take out the true villain. Lighthearted martial arts pratfalls give way to a bloody showdown featuring all of the raw, brutal action for which the Venoms films are famous.

Product Information

Director: Chang Cheh

Revered director Chang Cheh hit international gold by teaming three Taiwanese Opera artists (Lu Feng, Chiang Sheng, and Kuo Chue) with a Chinese muscleman (Lo Meng) and a Korean kicker (Sun Chien). The quintet starred in more than a dozen movies together, which were popular worldwide. This time it’s a battle between security agencies, and the men known as Twin Blades (Chiang Sheng), Magnificent Kicks (Sun Chien), Sharp Axe (honorary “Venom” Wang Li), Magic Pole (Kuo Chue), and Golden Sword (Lu Feng) take each other on until the last drop of blood is spilled.
