The Brave Archer (1977)
Reviewed by: MrBooth on 2004-11-27
Summary: 8/10
**** THE BRAVE ARCHER: Chang Cheh adapts Jin Yong, making for a very different film than his usual stripped down, macho affairs - it's more reminiscent of a Chor Yuen Gu Long adapation, especially in the proliferation of characters and twisty turny plot. I wouldn't like to begin to describe the overall story - it probably wouldn't make much sense anyway, but the film is so dense with happenings that it's best to just concentrate on what's happening at any given time - in which case it makes for a most enjoyable experience :) The Celestial DVD is hurt by another dreadful surround remix, but not killed completely.
Reviewer Score: 8
