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>

Zu Warriors meets Flying Daggers!
18 July 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Its taken me a while to see this little gem of a film, and it was not what I was expecting at all...

It felt about 3 hours long, not in a bad way, but just because it had so much going on!

Yuen Biao plays a fast kicking constable who is trying to take n criminal Sharla Cheung Man as the martial world battles around him. With many great faces of Hong Kong cinema portraying kung fu masters, the Sword Stained With Royal Blood becomes a who's-who of cameos and supporting roles that only adds to the madness that ensues!

From the get-go, we soon realise that this is not to be taken seriously, even though for a good portion of it, there is heavy drama, tear jerking deaths and some serious characters, but with that said, this plays like a companion piece to the corny and fantastic Flying Daggers with Tony Leung and Jacky Cheung.

From that movie, we have once again in hilarious form, the incredible Ng Man Tat who provides the most laughs throughout. That's in between all the swordplay, crazy effects, wire-fu and drama.

So yes, I guess at the end of the day, the Sword Stained With Royal Blood is a typical 90's Hong Kong classic, and all fans of Yuen Biao, Danny Lee, and HK fantasy films should really check it out!

Great fun!!
