Bat Without Wings is a weird, sorta supernatural Wuxia martial arts film; probably one of the most bizarre that I’ve seen. Needless to say I loved it in all it’s weird, nonsensical glory.
By turns garishly colorful and ominously dark, the restored Dragon Dynasty DVD is gorgeous to look at, with excellent subtitles and transfer. Another great Shaw Brothers release.
