good early kung-fu film...
10 December 2003 | by (Portland, OR, USA) – See all my reviews

...but don't expect the level of fight choreography that you'd see from Tsui Hark or Cheh Chang. It's a great vehicle for Cheng Pei-pei (Come Drink With Me, Crouching Tiger), who wields a whip to great effect. There are many familiar faces from other Shaw Brothers films here, and it's all capably done, though with a bit too much wire-fu for my taste.

One of the unusual aspects of this film is that it takes place during winter, with the outdoor action taking place in snowy fields and forests--I can't recall another martial arts film in a winter setting. This allows our heroine to go about fetchingly in fur-trimmed togs and headgear as she cracks the whip of virtue and honor.
