Non-stop wuxia action and craziness
15 September 2007 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

This is one of the last of Yuen Chor's wuxia epics for the Shaw studios. While he created some better films during the 1970's this is certainly one of his best from 1980's.

Ti Lung once again reprises his role as the Sentimental Swordsman, although this time he's armed with an iron fan since he ditched the sword in a previous film. The film starts with the honest swordsman, in a surprising move, attacking the kindly Eighth Prince in his bedroom. The prince survives the attack and sends the best martial artists after Ti Lung. The swordsman flees to the legendary "Ghost Village" a place only inhabited by criminals. A mysterious stranger in black is also after Ti Lung. Ti Lung gets to the village but he finds himself in the middle of intrigue and spooky happenings.

Once again we have a parade of colorful and strange martial artists. One man has a mighty thumb of gold, another rings a bell that shakes trees. Characters regularly move around by jumping from one concealed trampoline to another. There's a big, well choreographed fight every six or seven minutes and the sets are over the top kitsch. In other words, it's a lot of fun. There's barely any connection to the previous Sentimental Swordsman films except that Ti Lung is the main character and characters related to characters from the previous films show up to kill the swordsman.

Good Chinese martial art fantasy. Enjoy it.
