Blood Revenge (Taiwan 1974)

Rating: **
Review Date: 6/3/18
Cast: Liu Hsiao Hui, Phillip Ko

A simple revenge story about a young woman whose parents are murdered by a group of criminals that recently escaped prison. A family friend named Wei (Phillip Ko) helps Kong Tsui Fung (Liu Hsiao Hui) track the men down and avenge her parents' deaths. It's pretty much just one long fight scene with very little drama or exposition, and as much as I like kung fu, the unrelenting sameness of it all becomes tiresome after a while. That said, the fighting is quite good and Phillip Ko handles most of the heavy hitting. Unfortunately, while Liu Hsiao Hui's form is good, she lacks charisma and power, which undermines the female action aspect of the film.
