Lee Tso Nam might have been the best independent martial arts director out there. He wallowed in the clichés of the genre, but at the same time his films were generally very well paced and well written. What's with the low rating here? This is a straight-up classic. An old guy who throws needles! A protagonist with clear motivation and a character arc! Come on, are you asking for Bergman here?

I particularly like the obviously artificial "outdoors" set with the matte painting at the climax. Stylistic touches like that that give movies like this a sort of "out of time" charm, which cements them in the eternal language of myth and legend.
