THE GOLDEN SEAL opens with a cliffhanger, a flashback in which we learn that the evil Lei Zhentien (Ku Feng), head of the Sun and Moon Clan, murdered the father of Dai Wu (Huang Hua) to get his hands on the Golden Seal.The gambit didn't work, and the son, Wu, escaped a fiery death. An adult, now, Wu is given the seal and "the sword villains avoid" and sent out into the martial arts world. He meets "Dai" (whose actual name is Xiao), a beggar on the run from the Sun and Moon Clan. They camp out in an abandoned building, where Wu inadvertently learns that "Dai" is a female- moments before her father and his men arrive to drag her back to the clan. Wu tags along. While nosing around one night, Wu takes a dart meant for a female intruder, Feng.(Lei wears a weaponproof vest during the day, so Feng decided to attack him at night, when he wasn't wearing the vest. So much for well-laid plans...) They manage to escape and Wu meets a cave woman running around topless in the mountains. This is Shi. Now Wu has THREE women to contend with. Needless to say, things get interesting from here on out, but, lest we forget, this is a kung fu movie and love don't always work out in the end.
