Bat Without Wings (1980)

7/10 - If it ain't broke don't fix it
Reviewed by Simon on 17 January 2006
Another Chor Yuen/Ku Long work, this time a little more gothic and macabre than most of the others (reminding one of Human Lanterns at times), but not adding much else that's new... still, if it ain't broke don't fix it, as they say, and the formula for these wuxia detective fantasies is pretty unbreakable anyway. The film loses some marks for overusing coloured lighting, smoke and cheap special effects that sometimes make it look more amateurish than most of Chor Yuen's martial arts films. And for not having Ti Lung or Yueh Hua in it :)
