My second Ching Gong film of the week, but this time he's channeling King Hu rather than Chang Cheh, and the film is all the better for it. A much stronger script, that somewhat recalls King Hu's The Valiant Ones, even though KILLERS FIVE was made 6 years earlier. Ching doesn't quite have King Hu's flair for characterisation or cinematography, but puts in a good effort. Some imaginative action scenes, with buckets of blood and gore.
