YesAsia Editorial Description

In 1971, the year that producer Raymond Chow and director Lo Wei made Bruce Lee's international breakout hit The Big Boss, they also made this period kung fu film starring "Bruce babe" Nora Miao (Way of the Dragon, Fist of Fury). Co-starring Patrick Tse Yin, Stanley Fung Shui Fan, and iconic villain Shih Kien, the film combines political intrigue with martial arts and a hint of horror.

The court is in a civil strife, and the loyal ministers decide to hide the Emperor in a "haunted house". Anyone who dares to go inside will die a horrible death. Swordsman Xie's parents died in the house, so he is determined to get inside to investigate. Meanwhile, the corrupt minister catches wind of the Emperor's whereabouts, and he leads an army to attack the house. Can Xie fend off the renegade forces and save the Emperor?

So good that I wish they'd made a sequel Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
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.
