Summary: ****

**** WEB OF DEATH: Another winner from Chor Yuen, with Yueh Hua filling Ti Lung's shoes pretty well, though the film belongs to Ching Li. The "deadly spider" is comically non-threatening of course, and the action isn't that great - but the story, production values and "fun factor" all score very high.

Reviewer Score: 8

Summary: Scared of spiders?

Though theiris intrigue in this movie, what makes the movie REALLY unrealistic is the main item of the movie. A super spider which basically kills all in it's path!! And it is a normal sized spider which has all these powers!!

Can ou imagine a group of heroes scared of a tiny spider? Sorry that just made me laugh!!

the rest of the movie is quite serious. Yuah Hua plays a loyal but naive warrior who is both loyal and righteous. But then he encounters a lady who is mysterious and blindly accepts her as her friend.

There are a few plots twists here which i won't reveal. The martial arts is standard. Nothing special, the ending felt like a anti climax!!

The plot twists keep u interested but the little spider that scares all, PRICELESS!!
