Crippled Avengers
The Retro Film Series and AGFA present The Shaw Brothers: Volume One

Crippled Avengers

From its brutal beginning to its final frame, Crippled Avengers is a feast of graceful, acrobatic action. The film brings us protagonists who endure loss of sight, limb and even mind to become heroes. Maimed heroes endure because they embody perseverance and the ability to adapt to changing conditions. Their endurance elicits our sympathy but also gains our respect, the opposite of the arrogant villains they face. It’s an old story but it resonates for a reason. One by one, we witness each of our heroes maimed by the villainous pair of Dao Tian-Du (Chen Kuan-Tai) and his son Dao Chang (Lu Feng), who have the local community completely under their bullying thumbs. After bonding through their hardships, the heroes go to Eagle Mansion where they learn from Mr. Wang’s master, and we witness each adapt to his condition so they can get revenge.

In Mandarin w/Eng. subtitles.
