Description: When the Soviet Units marched into Romania in 1944, a part of the Romanian population went “into the mountains” – a diverse assortment of nationalists and fascists, liberals, apolitical farmers and members of the middle-class, who were affected by the Communists’ expropriations. Over a thousand armed resistance groups took refuge in the inaccessible forests of the Carpathian Mountains where they waited in vain for the help of the Western Allies. One of them was led by Ion Gavrilă-Ogoranu, who managed to remain undetected until 1976 when he was arrested. This movie depicts the everyday existence of this group. It says the storyline of a struggle that became an end in itself, as the opponent was constantly in pursuit and arrest meant torture and often liquidation. Hungry and emotionally withdrawn, the group of young boys got entangled in a partisan fight that should not be won, lost in the landscape of the South Carpathians, accompanied by a vigilant secret police, the Securitate.

Yin xia en chou lu Reviews:

MYSTERIOUS HEROES (1977, released in the U.S. in a questionable edition as WU TANG SWORDSMAN) offers a powerful cast of kung fu performers and a steady stream of well-staged action scenes that will support fanatics receive through a convoluted plot made even more erratic by mistakes in the English dub lines. The story revolves around the find for a kung fu master called Lo Tien Fung, who's been missing for 20 years, and the whereabouts of his vaunted "Green-Crested Sword." Carter Wong (18 BRONZEMEN) and his frequent co-star Polly Shang Kwan (aka Lingfeng Shangguan) enjoy kung fu students who embark on the find for Lo and whose ties to Lo are made clear much soon in the film. We learn early on that the evil Baron Su Ching (Wang Hsieh) of Dragon City had imprisoned Lo (Shih Kien) and kept him locked up in a secret dungeon all these years while coveting his famed sword. There is a beggar played by Cliff Lok who functions as a road performer who sings songs about the sinister goings-on in Dragon City and gets harassed regularly by the Baron's guards. Eventually Carter and Polly acquire Cliff as an ally and learn what they need to plan the rescue of Lo and the retrieval of the sword. There's a lot of family history gradually revealed and a fresh hero introduced late in the movie who has a nice deal of influence on the protagonists. It can receive puzzling at times, but at least there are plenty of large-scale wars with the Baron's units of red-suited guards and, subsequently, a band of assassins named the Four Devils. Carter and Lo even war every another a couple of times.Carter and Polly frequently take on multiple enemies in the film's most satisfying war scenes. Polly gets to war a lot and proves herself one of the more capable female warriors of 1970s kung fu films, although not quite in the same league as Angela Mao and Chia Ling. I've seen her in lots of films, but rarely have her war scenes been as nice as the ones here. She also looks pretty here and has a number of great costume changes. Veteran actor Shih Kien, most popular in the West for testing the villainous Han in ENTER THE DRAGON, has a lot of war scenes as well and one of the largest parts I've ever seen him play. He was in his 60s when he made this and is quite vigorous for his age. Cliff Lok participates in the action as well, although not as much as in his own starring cars (e.g. RING OF DEATH, KUNG FU GENIUS), chiefly because he's "undercover" for much of the film. Kam Kong, a regular kung fu villain of the time, plays the Baron's chief henchman and leads the frequent attacks on the heroes. Wang Hsieh, as the Baron, is a formidable enemy, although he doesn't do a lot of fighting himself.The English-dubbed Wu Tang Collection VHS tape edition I have of this movie offers one of the strangest pan-and-scan jobs I've ever seen, with the telecine camera (used to transfer movie to video) wildly moving back and forth between the characters. The lack of letter-boxing, combined with the fact that many of the war scenes take zone at night, means that a lot of the action is obscured. The English dub script gets a lot of features wrong. I'll give two examples. At one point, Carter declares his disdain for swords, yet he clearly uses a sword in most of his war scenes, referring to it as his "Shaolin knife." When the Baron's guards test throwing knives to slay each stranger who comes to city asking for Lo Tien Fung, Carter's English dub line erroneously insists that they're killing everyone claiming to BE Lo Tien Fung. There are different continuity errors also, and references to things we haven't seen, perhaps the effect of cuts made to the movie somewhere along the way. At one point, Carter's hands are bound together by iron clasps, yet in the very next stage his hands are suddenly free, with no indication of how that was managed. Late in the film, Lo asks Polly, "Do you remember the 13 techniques I taught you?"—even though she's too young to have ever been a student of his and there's no mission in the movie when he would have had the occasion to teach her anything. Somehow, I'm bound to conclude that the greatest method to experience this movie is with an original Mandarin soundtrack, with subtitles, and a letter-boxed widescreen transfer of an uncut print.The VHS tape box wrongly credits the film's direction to Wilson Tong. The current on-screen directorial credit goes to Chan Siu-Pang, who also directed THE MAGNIFICENT (1979), which I've also reviewed on this site. The credited action director is Chan Sui Chung and the credited kung fu intructors are the director, Chan Siu-Pang, and cast member Shih Kien.


MYSTERIOUS HEROES is a stock Taiwanese wuxia storyline about the hunt for a mystical sword and the efforts of a master swordsman to evade the numerous foes pitted vs him. Watching it these days, it's apparent that this is very much a Shaw Brothers copy, particularly of the sub-genre of 'martial world' films place out by Chor Yuen. Carter Wong is fine as the dedicated character of the piece and Polly Shang Kwan looks particularly lovely as the second lead, while the reliable Phillip Ko has a tiny cameo. The movie is allow down by the general cheapness of the staging, with weak rent war scenes and a very confusing and jumbled narrative structure.


There is not much I can add here in the shadow of Brian Camp's thorough and perfect review of this film except to receive my vote counted. I found the plot confusing in that Sek Kin was imprisoned for so long that it made no sense. Fact is, it really just does not create any sense at all that he would be locked up so long. The happenings in the film would really have happened immediately. But that would not give Carter enough time to grow up and crash the plot twist at the end. That being said, all that remains are the fights. Sek Kin has the scene presence to create any war look better than average. At this mission in Carter Wong's career he is nice but nice is his limit, he never achieved any greatness. Cliff Lok's acrobatics are under-used. The Polly vs Sek Kin war is the high mission of the movie. I can only rate it as slightly better than average for the year and genre.
