Lord Conquer is a great and mighty warlord who wants to take over the world. To do so, he must defeat another warrior named Sword Saint; but the battle is prophesized to take place in ten years. Lord Conquer's servant, Mud Buddah, says that he can make himself invincible by then if he can make two certain children into his disciples. Those children are Whispering Wind and Striding Cloud. But Lord Conquer discovers that if Wind and Cloud were to unite against him, they could overthrow him. He tries to avoid this by marrying his daughter Charity to Wind. Cloud intervines and Lord Conquer accidentally kills Charity. Meanwhile, the time has come for Lord Conquer's duel with Sword Saint. He shows his true intentions by turning against Cloud and Wind. Now it's a free-for-all battle between Lord Conquer, Sword Saint, Cloud, and Wind. And only one will emerge the victor! Written by
This is one of my favorite martial arts movies. There are lots of effects, a wonderful storyline, lots of wire-fu, and computer generated graphics. The actors are wonderful bringing these comic book characters to life. This is a totally different type of martial arts-fantasy movie.
Synopsis: The conqueror searching for a legendary sword kills two boy's fathers and adopts them(Cloud & Wind) to his clan. They are destined to be the conqueror's downfall. The conqueror sets up a love triangle(with his daughter) to keep them opponents so the do not unite against him.
But after the accidental death of his daughter things go out of the conqueror's hands.
Another movie made by Ekin Cheng along these lines is a movie called "a Man Called Hero". I have yet to see it but will review it in time. I also recommend "the Bride with White hair"(1 & 2), and "The Heroic Trio"(pt 1) and "The Executioners"(pt 2).
