Flying Guillotine, Part II

More remote decapitation fun, with the introduction of the Flying Guillotine Mk II and the Female Flying Guillotine squad led by Shih Szu. Ti Lung takes over Chen Kuan Tai's role, but doesn't have all that much to do. Quite enjoyable, but not a classic by any means. Features some strangely enthusiastic camera work - panning, zooming and dollying rather inappropriately over all the place. This peaks in last scene, which gets all ASHES OF TIME and is quite cool.

Summary: Average

Ti Lung is only in less than half the movie. Ti Lung finds a way to beat the flying guillotine but an inventor has improved it. the movie is more focused on the ladying lady who seeks revenge against the emperor.

Apart from the strange but effective guillotine there is nothing worth watching apart from the female lead. Her performance is quite good but this movie does not set itself above any of the other SB movies
