追魂鏢 (1968)
Killer Darts

Summary: 4/10

Weak script, weaker direction, some horrible action and farcically sped up fight scenes make this as close to a clunker as any swordplay film from the era that I've seen, but there are a few good scenes and Chin Ping is quite lovely throughout so it's not a total waste of 83 minutes.

Reviewer Score: 4

Summary: Certainly no flying guillotine

The 1968 movie by the director of 'The Flying Guillotine', Ho Meng Hua, is a little disappointing actually. Ok it is a late 1960s sword play formula movie (so you know what to expect), but I feel it still lacked a little, even for that genre. Not much was made of the killer darts really, so I saw it as just another SB sword play film. There were plenty of other evil weapons in use by the bad guys (including mini-cymbals), but again even those didn't lift this movie. It is an enjoyable 80 odd minutes, but nothing really special and certainly not out of the ordinary.
If I can offer one comment in its defence, there are plenty worse movies out there, hmmm I guess that doesn't say an awful lot, 5/10.

The only thing that keeps SB martial art films of this era going is the good plot, if there is one. They're all very similar in terms of the plot, but each one leaves me with a different impression - some good, others bad. Killer Darts is one that contains one of the best.

The plot is not bluntly special. It's just a good story that fans like me want to see. It's sentimental and emotion, and I love it. Again, if you're looking for action, please please forget about it. Go with SB movies from 1981-1985.
