The Avenging Eagle (1978)

In this typical late 70s Shaw Brothers production, Ti Lung tries to avoid further slaughtering of others, but his master would not let him. Ti Lung eventually teams up with Fu Sheng to defeat the evil master. Sounds familiar? It's a nice little formula, if a little overused. If only the English dub wasn't so horrible, I might actually have liked this movie as much as others did. The fight scenes are so-so, and the story could have been much better. Plus, the grand suspense was a no-brainer; anyone could have predicted Fu Sheng's identity. All in all, this is a decent kung fu movie, and I will probably watch it again someday.
