(ca) wrote: A very unoriginal story with a very nice and like able performances. Lillard proves he can be a good director.
(es) wrote: Another example of why Robert Wise is one of the best directors of our time. The film is so polished and percise the story and acting is great. The film also takes place in real time which is quite difficult to pull off well. Thought of as the best boxing film of its time or ever in my opinion.

(jp) wrote: One of the standout horror movies of the 1980s. A true horror classic.
(es) wrote: This was something I hadn't revisited since the VHS days, so I was pleased to give it a spin on Blu-ray with the recent Anthology release. The story is simple and while I dug the film overall as I'd expected to, the ending always feels slightly anticlimactic for me for some reason that I can't quite articulate.Still, well worth a look and something any action fan deserves the chance to revisit.
(it) wrote: one of my favorite kung fu films of all time. this film is from the kung fu movie gurus at shaw brothers. directed by Cheng Cheh, this film delivers on every level for me. if your into kung fu flicks from the best studio to ever produce them, this is a must.
(fr) wrote: Quite an enjoyable film that starts off as a naughty comedy but ends up dealing with the rights of women. The romantic side of the story felt a little forced and formulated.

(fr) wrote: Interesting mystery with effective cast of culprits gets knocked up a notch with Alastair Sim's offbeat, drolly amusing portrayal of the investigating detective.
