Superb sword play...

Lo Wei's DEATH VALLEY gives us the beautiful Jien (Chao Ying), a conniving, would-be upwardly mobile young woman willing to do anything (and anyONE) to get what she wants out of life. She sets up her father, the elder Chiu, by having "intoxicating incense" blown into his bed chamber; when he leaps up to defend himself, Jien's lover Lau Yuen Hawk and friend kill the old man. She then sends Lau in search of Jin (Hung Chen), "The Cold-faced Killer." It turns out to be a trap (the message she instructs Lau to give Jin tells Jin to kill Lau). Meanwhile, Chiu Yu Long (Yueh Hua) is quietly uncovering clues to old man Chiu's murder. He befriends Er To Chi (WAY OF THE DRAGON, SNAKE AND CRANE SECRET) and they travel together. Lam, a sadistic killer, enters the picture. Yu is mistaken for Jin, is found out and is attacked; wounded, he moves in with Little Doggie and his blind grandmother. Lam kills Little Doggie and his grandmother (after stabbing the old woman and sadistically twisting the blade in her). Yu avenges them both. When Yu realizes that Jin has been sent to kill him by the Jezebel Jien, he challenges Jin to a duel to the death atop a peak in Death Valley. There's plenty of solid action throughout, and Lo Wei is at the top of his game in terms of direction. The players all do a great job selling the emotional highs and lows and the ending is satisfying. A solid ten.
