Editorial Reviews:

Introducing what many consider the Holy Grail of 1970's martial arts/Hong Kong films. Master of the Flying Guillotine (also known as One Armed Boxer vs. The Flying Guillotine) combines eye-popping visuals, unforgettable characters, incredible performances, a spectacular electronic soundtrack and one of the most notorious weapons in film history. The cult and legend of Master of the Flying Guillotine continues to grow as martial arts film moves into the mainstream. Both Quentin Tarantino and Samuel L. Jackson single out "Master" as one of their favorite films.

Summary: One of the Greatest Martial Arts Films!
Comment: The picture quality on this disc is pretty uneven, but this film is so amazing, it really doesn't matter. The Master of the title, is the bad guy, but he has one of the weirdest weapons I've ever seen. Non-stop, bizarre action, fun performances and some bloody, crazy fights make this about as good as Martial Arts films get.

Summary: Disc Problems as Well but Can't miss this!
Comment: I had to return the disc twice because it didn't have Chinese w/ English Subtitle option like it said. Third time around I got one that worked.

If you are a Kung-Fu fan and have never seen this movie than you FAIL.
Quentin Terantino cites Guillotine as one of his inspirations and you can tell once you've seen it.

The music is amazing - I would love someone to remix it into a dance album.
Classically B-movie, poor acting, silly premise - its so bad its GOOD.

Host a Kung-Fu night and feature this to watch with friends. There are a lot of laughs, and not to mention wonderful examples of the Martial Arts Craft. Just don't take it too seriously.

Summary: Master of the Flying Guillotine
Comment: I think any one who is interested in Kung Fu/ Martial Arts movies really MUST see this movie! It's got it all...the blind master of the flying guillotine (what a title!) out for revenge, the one armed martial arts teacher, who is the subject of said revenge and a fantastic martial arts tournament that feels like a precursor to Final Combat.
A friend turned me on to this movie years ago, and we watched via a crappy vhs tape copy, so I was real happy to see it come out on DVD. The production value is on the cheap, and the dialogue dubbing certainly veers towards ridiculous (making it all the more fun!), but I bet you any thing that you are gonna wanna watch it over and over again! Highly recomended.

Summary: Master of the Flying Guillotine
Comment: There are alot of great fighters in this movie, but the main reason I bought this movie is because " The Master of the Flying Guillotine " is my favorite villain.

He's a blind man, that has his own music everytime he appears, and some of the coolest quotes. I love how relentless he is in catching " The 1 Armed Boxer "

Summary: Classic of its generation
Comment: Great film for its generation!!! A remake today, with all the new, state-of-the-art visual effects would do this movie some justice. The villain is on point, while the hero is crafty. Good film to have in your collection.
