Masked Avengers Blu Ray Review

MA24When a group of masked killers begins a reign of terror, it is seen as an unstoppable force. Then three men set out to end this groups murderous ways. Though almost impossible due to the masks, they have a break when another group is killed. However as the days continue suspicion begins to fall on one of the members. They are always a footstep behind, one inch away. This could mean that on of the ranks are a spy. One of the rank is giving the avengers clues and helping them stay ahead…

MA3Kung Fu films from the Shaw house of cinematic wonder is always a delight. Action packed but plot thin is acceptable when done with such energy. The film flies along like a train and keeps you tight to its sword swinging, foot kicking dynamics. It might leave you empty at the end but it is not that the film hasn’t done what it set out to do. It is that the film is a great time filler and nothing more. This is no criticism. It is not high art or worthy work. Its a film about that hero quest. That finding the ability to do something a little better than the other guy and winning. Nothing more, nothing less….

MA188 Films have smashed it with these Asian film releases. This is no exception. Looks stunning with the 1080 shining. The ratio helps to not pan and scan squash or exclude details and action. The commentary is grand. The booklet excellent. This is a must and possible the film release of the year…
