Not one of the strongest Shaw Brothers efforts.
30 June 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This lesser known piece of Shaw Brothers history doesn't really sizzle that much. The martial arts is kept to a bare minimum making it rely more on the story of which there isn't really any to speak of. A man possesses a deadly secret which everybody wants to know. The secret would tell you where riches lie. So being thin on plot and martial arts all that is left is the actors and there isn't very much star power.

The love story involved is a sort of twisted Romeo and Juliet. Avoid this one unless you're a hardcore Shaw Brothers fan. You do get to see the mystical martial arts where bending steel is not a problem. I guess for having over 900 films in their library you're bound to run into a clunker. This is one of those that's for Shaw.
