YesAsia Editorial Description

The movie that started it all! The Shaw Brothers classic, The Flying Guillotine introduced the moviegoing world to the most notorious weapon in martial arts cinema history: the flying guillotine! Crafted by Xin Kang (Goo Fung) at the behest of the Ching Emperor, the lethal killing device features retractable razor-sharp blades hidden in a hat-like object which, when thrown onto a victim via the connected chain, neatly decapitates the poor victim with a satisfying metallic clang. Among the band of assassins trained to use the flying guillotine is Ma Teng (Shaw Brothers regular Chan Koon Tai), who starts as the most talented member of the gang, and ends up as the gang's ultimate quarry. He goes on the run for two years with his girlfriend, but the two cannot elude the assassins forever. Eventually the gang will catch up with their former member...and when they do, heads undoubtedly will roll. Directed by Ho Meng Hua, The Flying Guillotine is a solid martial arts tale that has reached cult status thanks to its titular device, a creative killing machine whose existence would forever define martial arts cinema for legions of fans!

  Director Ho Meng-hua attained cult status among Western kung-fu film fans with The Flying Guillotine. One of Shaw’s biggest martial arts stars, Chen Kuan-tai, plays the leader of a group of killers, commissioned by the Ching Emperor to use a deadly, dissident. Although based on a true story, the film’s weapon was a complete fabrication because in real life, no one ever survived to tell what the actual weapon really looked like.

Average Customer Review Rated Bad 3 - 3 out of 10
One scene in particular I hate is the animal cruelty against a dog - I hope it was not really killed! Something to watch out for if your sensitive to that type of thing. I hope the sequel doesn't have the same. Imagine intimidating an innocent creature with fear and swinging an object around constantly. Ho Meng Hua should be utterly ashamed of himself - 'Shaolin Hand Lock' is a better example of how to make a film!

DVD is great quality however! 2:35:1 anamorphic with Mandarin 5.1 (sadly but tolerable). Subtitles feature missing letters sometimes but they do the job!

Flying Gullotine Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
The first movie that used the deadly weapon "Flying Gullotine" as the theme. This is also one of the best movie by kung fu actor Chen Kuan Tai. Highly recommended.
Remarks: VCD 1.1 wordings were reflected on the top left corner. Does it meant to be version # ?

This movie will be in my collection of course. Just waiting for my next pay-day ! That's all !
