Not among the better ones but had the most male Shaw actors
26 August 2005 | by (Malaysia) – See all my reviews

This is certainly not as good as the director's earlier Killer Clans, Magic Blade, Clans of Intrigue, Jade Tiger, Death Duel, Sentimental Swordsman, Clans of Amazon, Heroes Shed no Tears etc and the plot is simpler but like all his KU Lung adaptations, never short of surprises or twists. Interestingly, this movie has the most male stars compared to his other movies. We have Ti Lung, Fu Sheng, Derek Yee(a top HK director now) and Ku Feng in the important roles as well as Yueh Hua, Lo Lieh and Liu Yung, a good collection just to keep their faces as a reference. Some characters, weapons and fights made it interesting to watch.
