Storyline

The story is based on the popular novel developed from folk legend. It goes that the Manchurian emperor Qianlong of China (circa 18th Century) was actually the son of a Han Chinese, the subject ethnicity. His brother of blood, Chen Jialuo just happened to be the chief of the Red Flower Society, an anti-Manchu secret society. Chen, a learned scholar, thought he could get his brother turn his back on the Manchu and restore the Han Chinese reign. But the story was ended by brutal clearence of the society members. It reflects one of the dark pages in Chinese culture, that ethics and humanity always become impotent when countered with power. Written by Gigi Tam <gigitam@hkstar.com>

The quintessential kung fu movie
19 June 2002 | by See all my reviews

Depicts an uprising in Qing dynasty China (17/18th Century AD). Beautifully shot on location in China. Story, music, action are all excellent. If you see only 1 kung fu movie, go and see this one.
