The organization gains the support of numerous righteous martial clans, but the Qing government has its own plans of squashing the rebellion. The scheming prince of Qing poisons the rebels' central figure, Chi Zi Qiang (Jimmy Wang), and uses the antidote to force him to surrender.
I rented this movie on VHS a LONG time ago (back when Hollywood Video was Video Watch). It's great! The hero is inadvertently drawn into war between two clans when he interrupts the rape of a young girl. He is shot with a poison dart in the shoulder and cuts his arm off - at the elbow...and continues fighting! Awesome, fun, great martial arts, lots of sword fights, meancing bad guys, pretty girls. I couldn't remember the names of any of the actors if you put a gun to my head, but they were all great. Now that I think about it, I'm pretty sure it was part of a distribution company's set. I saw a few of them, but this was the best one. Somebody please release this on DVD.
