Storyline

The Emperor's spy, the daughter of the killed governor Shih Han, a mysterious mercenary and a blind swordsman team up to defeat Chief Pirate, leader of the 72 Desperate Rebels, but eventually it will be his daughter who will decide the end of the movie. This superb martial arts movie has nice imaginative touches and a very good planning direction.

Good grade for effort but only passing results
10 September 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The narrator explains all about the pirates. A general comes to arrest the leader but the giant bites off his sword and spits the tip back into his forehead. Barry Chan teams up with the kung fu chick and they hear that "Ghost Killer" is coming to take on all 72 of Pai Ying's men. But Barry and the girl take the challenge first.

The plot here is really all about the martial arts. Barry does his usual competent job in the fight sequences but the girl has no power in her moves. She swings the sword as if afraid she might hurt the stunt men. Wan Shan as "Ghost Killer" arrives during the final fight. This movie makes every attempt to put something different on the screen, something the audience has not seen before. The problem is creativity is more than just being different. True creativity shows the audience what they haven't seen before plus what they never would have imagined seeing.

This movie seems to set the format for the upcoming "ninja" movies. I mean the movies with "ninja" in the title but have nothing to do with ninjas, with outrageous colorful shiny costumes, with fights that defy every law of physics, with weapons never before seen and with nothing that makes sense in between the fights.
