The Five Deadly Venoms

Rating: 7/10

Master is worried that his five former students are too powerful and may do evil so he sends his goofy-haired final student off to stop them (but with the caveat that he must team-up with one of the venoms in order to defeat the others). This makes no sense, but once the ball is rolling it doesn’t matter. The five venoms begin to reveal themselves by slipping into their unique fighting styles but, rather than becoming an all out brawl, the story becomes an ancient Chinese courtroom drama. In this version “Your honor, I object!” has been replaced with kicking and a series of torture devices. Also featuring history’s most corrupt police force and judiciary which, in the end, the heroes choose to leave be because whatever would replace them would be.. er.. worse?
