Martial world vs. the spider

My review of Web of Death, another gorgeous-looking fantasy wuxia from Shaw Brothers director Chor Yuen, has just been posted over at Teleport City. You can check it out here. In the meantime, because the tiny screengrabs accompanying the review simply don't do Chor's vision justice, I've included some larger versions of those images below -- just as I did in connection with my earlier review of his Murder Plot.

I realize I am probably giving
away something that totally blew my mind when I say this, but have you seen Iron Monkey?

Todd said...

Thanks, Prof! Yes, fortunately for us, the well of worldwide cinematic craziness is a very deep one indeed.

Sunil: I love Iron Monkey. In fact, your mentioning it has given me a hankering to watch it again.

Among other things, it just blew my mind that the boy kicking ass so elegantly in Iron Monkey was in reality a girl. I wanna to see her kick ass after she grew up. :)
