Saw this one a while ago and enjoyed it, but your right, it had nothing to do with the original Five Deadly Venoms film. Still, it was a cool film, I liked how they all turned their handicap into an advantage. I need to re-watch it!

@Daniel: No, thank you for visiting!

@The Film Connoisseur: Well, that was sort of the point with the misleading title: to put more butts in seats if they had seen or heard of the original Venoms movie.
It's like a movie that is semi-based on a video game or book or comic or what have you. It might not have much to do with the ource material, but the name recognition will sell tickets.
