"I should give you a lesson you'll never forget...some broken bones!"
This is Chang Cheh's Altman moment! An awesome kung fu flick that will have you applauding at the end. The Shaw Brothers pull out all the stops in this one, the cast is simply phenomenal. Yes, you will recognize every face in this one, even the bit actors.
The narrative is a bit confusing, but the gist is this...ten warriors band together to protect a rebel leader. Forget the plot, you'll be too busy picking your jaw up from the floor from a.) seeing all these guys in one movie, and b.) the kick ass fight scenes. You have died and gone to kung fu heaven (and Bruce Lee is not there!) Best scene- a baddie gets his head KICKED OFF. Blood sprays! Yes!!
