User Reviews: Have you ever watched a kung fu movie from Hong Kong that was made in the 1970s? Then you have seen this movie. "The Bloody Fists" contains one clich√© associated with the genre and the time period after another. Do we have people wandering around a countryside where the plant life looks like it desperately needs water? Check! Do we have villains laughing out loud frequently? Check! Do we hear loud swooshes when limbs are moving quickly? Check! Do we get impossibly loud sounds when blows land on various body parts? Check! Does the camera several times zoom in (or out) very quickly when photographing various characters? Check! I could go on and on like this for a long time, not just with getting into the very familiar plot, but I won’t. There is some excitement in the climatic action sequence, but it’s too little, too late. I know there are some people who like these 1970s Hong Kong kung fu movies, but I’m not one of them. Me, I’ll take a Hong Kong kung fu movie no older than the mid-1980s each and every time.
