First let's start on a positive note: The good news is that like the rest of the recently re-released Shaw Bros. films, this one looks absolutely stunning. Celestial/IVL has been doing not only fans of martial arts films a favor but also fans of cinema in general a favor by releasing these previously unseen films en masse to the public. Sure, some might be disappointing, but only when compared to the excellence of those movies released concurrently. And that's it for the good news, really. Unlike BUDDHA'S PALM, or HOLY FLAME OF THE MARTIAL WORLD, or even BATTLE WIZARD, this latest whacked-out swordplay/fantasy movie from Celestial/IVL simply does not deliver the goods. Sure, it has its moments, most of them coming early on, but they are scant. Chu Yuan directs with an aimlessness so powerful it can only be matched by the meanderings of the plot. I say skip it entirely, or at least rent it before buying it blind like I did.
