The Bamboo Sword vs Lei Fu

This movie opens with the familiar scene of highwaymen attacking an Imperial convoy, stealing away with all the gold and treasury in their possession. Lei Pao - wielder of the bamboo sword - is ordered by the government to retrieve their property, and put an end to this notorious gangs banditry. The urbane gentleman disguises himself as a scruffy vagabond and travels to their purported base of operations, where he intends to win the confidence of the bandit-leader Lei Fu and infiltrate the gang. Meanwhile, a warrioress dressed in all white named Tsui Fong also arrives at this destination... with a mission of her own.

Other than that, there isn't much to say about this movie. It's a rather textbook example of a Kung Fu flick, with many of the genre-tropes that come with it. However, overall its rather skillfully executed. The crew and actors managed to make an familiar yet engaging Martial Arts film.

There is an emphasis on armed combat, as opposed to the unarmed kind. The villain, a rather crude fellow, is also hilariously enough nicknamed "Blackie" by his mother. Some of the plot points are a bit stale but its nothing overly detrimental to the film.

Overall, I give this a 6/10. Though a rather weak one at that.
