Storyline

The sensitive swordsman Cho Yi-Hang is tired of his life. He is the unwilling successor to the Wu-Tang clan throne and the unsure commander of the clan's forces in a war against foreign tribes and an evil cult. One day, he meets the beautiful Lien, a killer for the evil cult who is equally unsatisfied with her situation, but their love angers both the Wu-Tang clan and the evil cult.

Wow. I can remember watching this film with my mouth hung in amazement.

It's amazing how the story really drew me into the film. Greatly choreographed swordplay and action, typical standard of Hong Kong cinema. Interesting death scenes include impalement & slicing up of people. The romantic part of this film really adds to the atmosphere (the tendersweet waterfall scene) and Brigitte's performance as Lien Ni Chang really helped her character shine. I've never felt myself cringe as much I did during the "leaving the cult" ceremony.

Whether it's for the action or romance, the Bride with White Hair is really entertaining & highly recommended for viewing pleasure.
