Classic Shaw Brothers kung fu, ,

Flag Of Iron is another impressive effort from the winning team of director Chang Cheh and The Venom Mob(of which 3 of the 5 Venoms appear here). This is an excellent kung fu film with great camera-work, costumes, sets and weapons. There are themes of honor, loyalty and righteousness that set our heroes into action. There is a skirmish between two kung fu clans that leave our main man Kou Chui(aka Philip Kwok) that has our homie leave town for a year for the heat to calm down. This is a planned betrayal for villain Lu Feng to become leader of the clan and unite both clans and take over the previous clan's nefarious gambling and prostitution racket. He even sends 10 killer's to take out our hero Kuo Chui, who mops the floor with all comers. He is joined by fellow Venom Chiang Sheng and spearman(The Rambler), a killer with a code of honor that lives in the local brothel. The three unite to confront evil clan leader (Venom Lu Feng) in an ultimate battle of kung fu carnage. There is betrayal, double crossing and some excellent, fast paced kung fu fighting with an impressive arsenal of weapons. The fight choreography is swift and precise with acrobatics, fists and feet with a variety of weapons that often ends up with a good amount of blood shed. Flag Of Iron is solid, action packed martial arts entertainment from the very reliable director Chang Cheh and Shaw Brothers Studio.

Exquisite

The Venoms films are well regarded amongst Shaw Brothers fans as some of the best of the studio's output. THE FIVE DEADLY VENOMS and RETURN OF THE DEADLY VENOMS (aka CRIPPLED AVENGERS) are two of their classic films which most fans will have seen, but they also made loads of other movies along the way, pretty much all of them stand alone titles, and THE FLAG OF IRON is such a film.

And the good news is that this is an exceptional bit of entertainment and one of Chang Cheh's very best movies. It's a vibrant and colourful film with a complex yet easily understandable storyline full of intrigue, betrayal, and double crossing. There's mystery and suspense in spades, and of course the narrative is bolstered by a series of madly exciting fight scenes which help to tell and develop the storyline instead of just being added in for the sake of having some action.

Nearly all of the Venoms are present in this one, and they're at the top of their game. Phillip Kwok is the best I've seen him, playing the loyal warrior who ends up being exiled and working undercover as a waiter. The segment of the film in which he's attacked by a series of outlandish assassins is my favourite and great, imaginative stuff. Watch out for the guy with the killer abacus, of all things! Chiang Sheng lends solid support as Kwok's buddy while Lu Feng takes a typical role and yet adds layers to it.

Lung Tien Hsiang is a little weak as the white robed rambler, a non-Venom added to the story, but he's certainly adequate enough all things considered. As usual, Chang Cheh is the real star of the show, bringing to life the gorgeous sets and costumes in a special way and shooting the action with his usual verve and dynamism. Yes, there is some 'flag fu' in this film, particularly towards the end of the picture, although it's not overdone. There is plenty of violence and bloodshed in the best Shaw tradition, however. Having loved every minute of FLAG OF IRON, I can only describe this as a masterpiece.

The Flag of Iron

When the master of the Iron Flag Clan and the rival Eagles group's leader have been killed by the mysterious Spearman. The secret is that he has been hired by Iron Tiger (Feng Lu, Centipede from Five Deadly Venoms), who has allowed Iron Panther (Phillip Chung-Fung Kwok, Lizard from Five Deadly Venoms) to take the rap -- even though the Iron Flag are known for being virtuous protectors of decency. Iron Tiger promises to send him money so he can be released, but the money never comes. What does happen is that multiple assassins are seeking to kill Iron Panther and in a surprise, the Spearman saves him.

The Spearman did kill the master, but was tricked into doing so. And now, Chow Feng leads not only the Iron Flag Clan, but their mortal enemies the Eagles. No, not with Don Henley and Timothy B. Schmit.

Now, Iron Panther and his brother Iron Monkey (Sheng Chiang, Crippled Avengers) are about to get revenge. Yet to battle the Ten Killers of the Underworld, they're going to have to team with the Spearman.

Chang Cheh also directed Chinatown Kid, The Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires, Shaolin Temple and so many other incredible martial arts films. Here, he introduces flag fighting to the form and wow, the battles in this are fascinating. They're also quite gory with blood spraying everywhere and flags piercing evildoers.
