Crippled Avengers (1978)

Recommended Posts

Ninja Terminator has opened the kung fu flood gate. I guarantee that Crippled Avengers has more to talk about than Ninja Terminator. The violence is crazy over the top and also somehow very casual.


The movie opens with a small boy being having his arms chopped off by capricious local gangsters. You would think this would lead to a heroe's journey where he learns to overcome his disability and bring the evil doers to justice. NO. He gets metal hands and becomes the villain for the rest of the movie who takes pleasure in crippling other people for things as innocuous as bumping into him.


I watched this with a friend and we could not stop asking what the hell is going on through the entire thing. This is a Shaw Brothers film, not some random low budget throwaway.
