    Flying Guillotine AKA all sorts of things, possibly Master of the Killer Hats (!), but not to be confused with Master of the Flying Guillotine (it's a confusing nomenclature - even the cover art seems to be from another movie), a Shaw Brothers classic about assassins who use a throwable hat that chops off heads. Now, there's a lot of training with this thing, so the first half is over-long, but it gets better when one of the assassins (Kuan Tai Chen) runs off because the Emperor has just gone too far. They track him down, but can they kill him and his dissident singer of a wife (her songs are awesome)? It resolves satisfyingly (and uses a LOT of cool outdoor sets), though the Emperor gets away scott free. Boo History! However, I can't say the movie convinced me the flying guillotines are anything other than "flawed" (at best). 3 years 7 months ago
