So good that I wish they'd made a sequel
Two months before director Lo Wei's "The Big Boss" hit the theatres and changed kung fu films forever, Lo offered audiences "The Comet Strikes", a more traditional pre-Bruce historical martial arts epic. Those, like me, who stumble upon it now with no particular expectations will be delightfully surprised. "The Comet Strikes" is a splendid concoction, mixing elements of horror and political intrigue with large helpings of fisticuffs and swordplay, all topped off with an impishly captivating performance by 19 year old Nora Miao.
For the first hour of the film, "The Comet Strikes" has two separate storylines which seem to have little to do with each other. In one, bands of swordsmen enter a small town in search of the deposed child emperor. The swordsmen, who include the legendary Four Tigers of Lu Tung, the warriors of Tien Hsing Manor, and the fearsome Peng Tien Pei (played by Lo Wei himself) are locked in competition with each other. Whoever captures the ousted king will be made chief of the new emperor's imperial guards. In the second story line, these swordsmen learn that the local yokels in this town live in fear of an allegedly haunted mansion on the town's outskirts. The foolhardy swordsmen scoff when the locals tell them that no one who enters the mansion ever leaves alive. Some of the tough guys decide to prove the locals wrong, much to their eternal chagrin.
Floating between these two storylines is Nora Miao's mysterious character, the Comet. As one of the martial artists tells her, "You flit about and talk in circles." Indeed she does, but, believe me, you don't want to mess with the Comet -- she is one deadly sword-slinger. Just when the viewer arrives on the verge of frustration, wondering how the two storylines fit together and what the Comet has to do with any of it, Lo Wei's script ingeniously brings all of the elements together in a convincing culmination filled with horrifying chills and martial arts mayhem.
If you enjoy old school swordplay epics, then "The Comet Strikes" will strike you as just about perfect.
