top tier sword play

This wang yu classic has some of the best kung fu/swordplay ever, highly recommended for the action bits and fights. its also really well directed and photographed, looks great. and of course any movie that stars wang yu and tien feng is going to feature great performances and this one surely does. not sure what the other reviewers on here are going on about because this is easily one of the best shaw brother productions ever.

Jimmy Wang Yu is tortured...again

There's an odd propensity to cripple/majorly injure Jimmy Wang Yu in many of his films, and this is no exception.

On the surface this is begins as a fairly standard swordplay/wu xia -esque film. A powerful weapon owned by a master of a martial arts school, a ambitious student who wants that ultimate weapon for himself, and a student without ambition but a good, moral man who just happens to be the best in the school. From there the story proceeds.

While the action isn't the best, considering the time, and the story isn't quite as endearing as The One Armed Swordsman or the One Armed Boxer (both also with Jimmy Wang Yu), this is still a very interesting story, and the journey and tragedy of Ling Tseng-hsiao makes for exceptional viewing.

Love all these movies, but a bit annoyed by this one.

I can't help but wonder how this movie came about. Yu Wang was huge in the late 60s and had just done The One-Armed Swordsman. Some executive might have said "Hey we had this huge hit where Yu Wang was disabled. Let's think of another major injury he has to overcome and it'll be a hit!" They settled on blindness, but Chang Cheh thought they were idiots, so they got someone else to direct it. I doubt this really happened, but blindness isn't the only obstacle for Yu Wang in this movie.

Well, naturally there are dozens of armed men for him to cut down. But what bothered me most here was there are so so many dumb and stubborn characters. The melodrama factor is really high too. But, I watch these for the action, and it was pretty good. The main villain, Feng Tien, admits pretty early that he's not as good as Yu Wang, but they still get a few fights out of the pair because of the villain's plans. Great here as a villain, especially what he pulls on Yu Wang near the end, oh my god.
