    August 7, 2006 Shih Szu is the real hero Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
    Not your usual revenge-driven wuxia film as the three stars (Shih Szu, Lo Lieh, and Chang Pei-Shan) receive and try to deliver two royal seals to their rightful owners without being killed in the process. There's lots of really good action sequences along with (unfortunately) some cheesy wire work and excessive trampoline usage. Lo Lieh plays his typical rouge-ish character and Chang Pei-Shan is the honest, moral opposite to Lo Lieh. It's nice to see Chang play a good guy for a change. But get it straight: Shih Szu is the star. She is deadly and utterly convincing with her usage of the twin swords and just dominates her action scenes. A great performance.

    August 7, 2006 Little Poisonous Dragon Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
    The literal translation of this film title is "Little Poisonous Dragon" and that's who Shih Szu is in this film. It's your standard wuxia revenge film, brightened up considerably by pretty Shih Szu who's more than competent (and confident) with a sword. In fact, I'd say that she's more convincing with her swordplay than Cheng Pei-Pei, who was the reigning queen of Shaw's wuxia films. Yueh Hua's character is rather pointless other than a male counterpoint to Shih Szu's character. The final battle was a bit disappointing in some respects, since Shih Szu needed "help", but overall the film was still quite good.

    June 5, 2006 A Shaw Brothers Classic Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    One of Jimmy Wang Yu's greatest roles as the introspective, maimed swordsman who learns to overcome his disability and discovers there's more to life than martial arts.

    Sure, the action doesn't compare to today's martial arts choreography and wire-fu, but it was cutting edge for its time. A classic martial arts film.
