 Not to be confused with the more well known 80's John Woo-directed Chow Yun Fat film with the same title, this is a story dealing with these 3 little kids who grow up in a circus and two of them become kung fu masters and really good at throwing knives. Oh, and the other one becomes a pretty lady and a nightclub singer. That's the backstory anyway the main plot concerns political corruption, sneaky Japanese drug smugglers and lots of ass-kicking, throwing people through walls and breaking kung fu school signs. I really like this Shaw Brothers flick mostly because for a majority of the film I was never 100% certain whose side I should be on. The main character who's presented as the hero is super honorable but at the same time he's being used by nefarious forces while his buddy that he grew up with is just trying to do his job of apprehending criminals. This leads to some conflict of course. I enjoy grey areas in these types of films. Of course I also dug all the bloody fights and samurai sword battles. AKA SACRED KNIVES OF VENGEANCE
