Ode To Gallantry (1982)

7/10 - Good story, a bit short on fights
Reviewed by Simon on 15 August 2005
ODE TO GALLANTRY is adapted from a Jin Yong story that shares some elements with HEAVEN SWORD & DRAGON SABRE but on a much more manageable scale for a film. The result is an enjoyable tale with a nice dual role performance from Kuo Choi (who is rather cute and funny in one of the roles). It's not deep or heavy but provides decent entertainment for an hour and a half. There isn't that much kung fu for a film with 3 Venoms in it, which might disappoint the hardcore fans, but the final scrap is very good and ought to please those who would rather have a good story than people leaping about all over the screen for 90 minutes :)
