A very good movie !
I am not a venom fan , for the simple reason that i think the shaw bros budget and their fancy locales plus their well-contrived atmosphere and cinematography all contribute to the venoms looking like world class martial artists............
However , FLAG OF IRON.... does a decent job of showing genuine martial arts with some fun effects ,as well as , fantastic weapons-play..
Not an " A " in my opinion but a solid " B " plus......
I strongly encourage ownership of this piece as it is well directed ; well upheld by a better than average story....training scenes are a significant part of the film and it serves it's purpose very well indeed----check out LO MANG in a protracted training scene for the fighting finale .
for the collector's rack....!!!
