Storyline

After the death of Marshal Yuen, a princess is arrested by a constable whilst training with her kung-fu teacher. They are soon drawn into a conflict which centres around the mysterious man with the golden snake sword - an incredibly powerful magical weapon. Golden Snake Man is seeking revenge on the castle of the Wan family, but Wan has married his former lover. The Five Poison Sect of fighting (and flying) women have entered into an uneasy alliance with the forces of the Manchu Master Wu to steal the golden snake sword. Wan's daughter is torn between her father and her love of the constable. The constable must decide between his brotherly love for the Golden Snake Man and his sense of justice. Meanwhile a blind old man seeks to return the powerful Sword Stained With Royal Blood to the son of Marshal Yuen. Written by Brian Rawnsley <rawnsleb@natlib.govt.nz>

The best wuxia ever made
18 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Easily my favorite wuxia.

One of the best movies I've ever seen. The whole cast does a great job. It is a magical movie. The soundtrack, the story, the comedy... Movies just don't get better than this. This movie has the most amazing mix of comedy and drama I have ever experienced. Get this movie immediately if you a fan of wuxias. SOrry for the short review, but I don't want to give anything away. You have to see it for yourself. Blah blah, words words words. Sorry, I am trying to type enough words so this reviews posts. Stop reading and go get the movie right now. the World Video DVD is really cheap.
