Convict Killer (1980)
5/10 - Mediocre wu xia
Reviewed by Simon on 2006-11-06
Chor Yuen churns out another wu xia film full of outlandish characters and unlikely plot twists, but doesn't seem to have been trying all that hard to make this one entertaining. It often looks quite lovely, and is pretty action-packed (though the quality of the action is inconsistent), but it comes across as a rather tired entry in the genre. Watchable, but there's much better out there.
