Butterfly and Sword beat Three Swordsmen
16 August 2001 | by See all my reviews

The Three Swordsmen is about three people who wanted to be the greatest swordsmen of all China. Brigitte Lin was very cute with the fur, but what got me was the character she played was a male and I can't believe she was woman with a man's voice. You should see this movie because they breast-feed in this movie and also they snatch skin off of people's body. But nothing compared to Butterfly & Sword.

Butterfly and Sword has beaten The Three Swordsmen.
