Storyline

A royal official accompanies a Portuguese warship to the Black Cliffs to see the site of the defeat of the evil Invincible Asia, who attained supernatural abilities by following the sacred scroll and castrating himself. The official discovers that the Portuguese are actually after the sacred scroll, and then finds Invincible Asia him/herself, who is not actually dead. Invincible Asia seeks to destroy all the imposters or 'false Invincible Asias' who have assumed his/her place leading cults, whilst the Portuguese, a mysterious Japanese warlord and others search for Invincible Asia and the Sacred Scroll.

Insane action, intrigue, and magic
23 February 2001 | by See all my reviews

This movie picks up where Swordsman II left off: the Magnificent Asia completes the transformation from a mortal man to a woman with incredible magic martial arts powers and continues her ruthless quest for power, revenge and love.

It's almost impossible to follow the plot, but the whole movie is so packed with supernatural action, intrigue, ambition, revenge, and amazing costumes and scenery it doesn't matter. Add English subtitles that are inadvertently hysterically funny and you have a truly bizarre and entertaining movie. Some people will find it boring, and martial arts buffs might be disappointed, but I thought it was a scream.
