Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 05/31/2002
"...[A] lovable, fleet genre picture, which has inspired countless directors....Once you find the groove of this delectable cheese fest, you'll realize how influential GUILLOTINE has been..."
Los Angeles Times - 05/24/2002
"...This brisk, action-filled period thriller celebrates the combatants' mastery of style and technique and endless ingenuity rather than razzle-dazzle special effects....It is a gem of its genre..."
Box Office - 07/01/2002
"...For those sufficiently attuned to appreciate its magic and majesty, Jimmy Wang Yu's restored masterpiece may very well be the archival discovery of the decade..."

Product Description:

In 1730, the Manchu dynasty hires the blind Master of the Flying Guillotine (Kam Kong) to quell any resistance from the Han people, whose dynasty has just been taken over. When a fighting tournament is announced, the Master sees it as a chance to avenge his two disciples, who were killed by the One Armed Boxer--another Master who will fight in the tournament. The blind man's unlikely weapon of revenge is the "Flying Guillotine" which he hurls through the air to decapitate his victims--but the One Armed Boxer has a few tricks up his sleeve. This 1975 production is a favorite among many hardcore fans of martial arts film.
