5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Oct. 2 2011
The 2 people who gave this review a 2 have no taste at all for classic Kung Fu movies. This film is a true classic, cheesy dramatic scenes only heighten the pleasure of the action and it's some of the best action you will see. And I defy anyone to show me a darker clandestine monk/ninja hoizon spear master. Get it!! Score is classic, the RZA sampled it for wutangclan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow!!! June 5 2004
This film is amazing. If you like kung fu/samurai flicks, this is the one to see. I thought "Swordsman II" was great, this I think, is better. This movie reminds me so much of the anime "Ninja Scroll". The cinematography is awesome. The fighting is superb, and the violence is incredible. It captures the essence of Shaolin kung fu and the Japanese samurai. Great sword play and an intriguing story. This is a gem. Now one of my favorite martial arts movies. Two thumbs up, way up.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a must see for HK movie fans! May 17 2004
I saw it like that when Iv read the reviews. This movie got it all!. Its a classic for HK kung-fu movies as Scarface would be for gangsta movies.
What I liked the most about this film, despite being an old film, is that ur not left on ur hunger with lil teasers. For example, when u see a fight scene that u like, and it promptly stop (because the guys run away, or they got killed like instantly) all u do is hoping that u will see it again, like if ur doing sex and someone intterupts u. WELL THIS MOVIE BRINGS U TO ORGASM! Thats right, no lil teasing, its goes until the end with stronger and better fights until the famous DUEL that happens! And the last fight is the strongest and most complete! Its a little hardcore, but so realistic. This movie rocks, and the DVD is cool as well!

I have promised myself not to buy any action movies produced before 1990 due to their slowness in fighting but this is one of the exceptions. The fighting scenes are swift, smooth and violent. The special effects are as good as any other Hong Kong top movies of today. It is amazing especially when this film was made in 1982. If you love sword fighting or Ninjas you will like this. The plot is so so.

4.0 out of 5 stars fantastic transfer on this little known flick Jan. 23 2004
By J.C.
Wow is all I can say. After years of dealing with kung-fu on crappy pan and scan VHS and letterbox format DVD's, this edition is a rare treat. First off it's a fully anamorphic transfer, meaning it will preserve it's original aspect ratio on widescreen televisions. It looks fantastic on my Samsung widescreen HDTV. The colors are rich and vibrant, making the film look better than it probably ever has. The fact that Fox and Fortune Star took such care in transferring a fairly unknown kung-fu film warms my heart. Lest I forget the DTS soundtrack which actually offers a noticed separation instead of a generic Pro Logic sound, unlike nearly every other "digitally restored" DVD coming out these days. The inclusion of the original trailer and original Cantonese soundtrack are like a buying a donut that comes with a refill of jelly.
The story is fantastic too. There are all kinds of ninjas! Kite ninjas, vanishing ninjas, even naked foxy ninjas! The score is very effective as well. A lot of older kung-fu flicks either have no score or a scattershot one at best. This movie has a pronounced heroic theme that's quite catchy.
This kind of treatment should be given to more kung-fu films.

4.0 out of 5 stars Exciting, Fun Action Adventure Nov. 10 2003
"Duel to the Death" is one of those films you either love or hate. Some are turned off by the campy action and editing (and believe me, this film makes editing look real easy) while others love the action, storyline, characters, and above all - ninjas.
And yes, there ARE a lot of ninjas in this movie. Naked ninjas, ninjas that walk on water, big ninjas, ninjas that leap out of bigger ninjas, flying ninjas...the list goes on. Well what do you expect when the ninjas are the bad guys? Any way, at least the two main characters are likable enough.
The final showdown as well is exciting and also leaves you with some essense of what the characters are like, rather than indiscriminantly killing off characters like some kung fu films do.
One more thing: I am in love with this soundtrack. If there was any way I could get my hands on the main theme...I would be truly happy.

Considering that this film was released when I was still in diapers this film was executed perfectly in every aspect. This story has it all. It has mystery, love, revenge, tragedy, and some of the best action I've seen to date. All of this is staged around one duel based on an age old rivalry to see who is the best. Will it be the Chinese or the Japanese. This is an oldschool film, but it is waaaaaaaaay ahead of it's time. It's definitely one of my favorites and I'm sure that anyone who buys this film without any expectaions except to be entertained will love this classic.

4.0 out of 5 stars when ninja's attack April 4 2003
the fight scenes and wire-fu are excellent for it's time. there's some crazy ninja antics that some will love and some will hate. i personally loved 'em. my only complaint is that the movie could have more action sequences.
