The pacifist warrior Silver Hermit is accused of having killed and/or conspired to kill three rivals in a martial arts contest. The contest is to choose a brave warrior to marry a princess, heir to a famous martial arts school and the daughter of the most powerful martial artist in China, Lady Jade. In proving his innocence, Silver Hermit teams up with a mysterious woman and the warrior Iron Axe to fight against his accusers as well as the real culprits. These disciples are the disciples of a nefarious martial arts master seeking revenge against the princess's mother who had defeated him 2 decades back. Written by Rahul Oka

The Deadly Silver Spear
28 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

OK... where do I begin?.. I just noticed that this issue has been brought up on the message board in 2012 and still nothing has been corrected... so I'll continue...

IMDb has the right Year (1977) and Cast lineup (Yu Wang, Feng Hsu and Yi Chang), But the DVD box cover, the name "Silver Hermit from Shaolin Temple" and the Storyline do "not" belong here. These all belong in the IMDb "The Silver Spear (1980)"...

As for the reviews here, jmmjg's review belongs in The Silver Spear (1980) area because when he stated "a contest of 5 warriors fighting for the right to marry a princess and it ends with an immortal vampire seeking revenge"... That's a description of that movie. I can see how he was mislead to post it here, although if he looked at the cast on his movie he wouldn't see Yu Wang but instead, Peng Tien, Ho Tien and Chung-Erh Lung.

squelcho has the right review and sums it up pretty decent so there's not a lot I would change there.

This movie "The Deadly Silver Spear" (1977) aka "Shaolin's Silver Spear" and U.S. re-title "Deadly Kung Fu Lady" is a decent flick I enjoyed.
