Just when you thought the Shaw Bros. could only do damn good martial arts films, the go and top that with wuxia movies. Here is a quick run of the film. Tsui Siu Keung is constantly picked on and bullied by the other pupils because he is an orphan. His master (Qing Song)is a very unconcern person about Tsui feelings because the last 20 years he has lost every duel with the Invincible Clans' master.
Qing Songs' master is non other than Wilson Tong, whom has learned the Silkworm technique, but can't master it because he is not a virgin. Lo Meng (Toad of the 5 Deadly Venoms) has very good sword fighting skills. You really don't see him much, but his parts were very good. Tsui is actually learning kung fu in secret by an unknown master whom turns out to be Qing Song. The plot gets even thicker when we find out that Qing Song is actually Tsui father.
I could go on and spoil the rest for you, but then you wouldn't see the movie. The Bastard Swordsman is a very good contender in the Shaw Bros. vs Golden Harvest bout. This movie scores big on it's action and swordplay. Also check out New Tales of The Flying Fox, another damn good wuxia from the Shaw Bros. And if you want an even bigger helping, please check out The Return of the Bastard Swordsman. Shaw Bros goodness for the soul.
