General Invincible (1983)
14 May 2015 | by See all my reviews

Starring Pearl Cheung Ling, Adam Cheng Siu-Chow, Wang Hsieh and Tien Feng. Produced by Chou Kuang-Ti, directed by Cheung Paang-Yee and Pearl Cheung Ling.

The movie begins with a lot of flying kung fu, the white haired guy who does that funny wiggling of the ears (that you've seen before) and states that no one is qualified to fight with him, which a young man tries, but fails.

A mean master and his thugs devise a plan to kill the four lords and gain control of the country but the fourth lord manages to chop off the hand of an assassin before he dies. His daughter called General Women returns to find her father dead but is hesitant to start more fighting.

General Woman's master kills himself to entice her into revenge, which she does, wielding the Shadow Sword with her sidekick that's a mute. She plans her attack, finally meets up with the young man at the beginning of the movie and they end up in a complicated love triangle.

The main fight is with our couple against the mean master and they win with the help of the Falling Star Sword, but its not over yet. There's another showdown with the old master at the beginning of the film (who thinks no one is qualified to fight him) and our General Women does just that. The last scene is with General Women sitting by the ocean with the sword in her hand.

This movie has women dancers, nice sets, nice costumes and flying fantasy kung fu if that's what you like. It is a roller-coaster ride that has a fast pace with some really slow areas and places that seem to make no sense whatsoever. If this is your type of thing you may find it quite enjoyable, but others may not. It was a 50/50 for me.
