Superior storytelling...
8 May 2013 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Despondent over the inadvertent death of Hero Lu during a "friendly" duel, Hero Chang (Ling Yun) goes cold turkey for three years- until he runs into masked members of The Ghost Clan during a robbery attempt. In short order, he's back at it- to the eternal dismay of the masked thugs. For his affront, the gang murders his parents. He finds the bodies and once again takes up THE TWIN BLADES OF DOOM. He comes across a "wounded man" near death on a deserted mountain road and attempts to help by carrying the man to a doctor. Camouflaged Ghost Gang members attack him and, still carrying the man (who is awake and well enough to wound HIM with a poison dart), Ling fights them all off. He makes it to the home of the lovely Yi-Erh and her family and stays with them as he recuperates. (It turns out that Hero Lu was her uncle, which complicates their budding romance.) Meanwhile, the villainous Ma frames Chang (Ma wants the Twelve Jade Beauties, which are worth a fortune, and Chang is in his way). THE TWIN BLADES OF DOOM is yet another of the early kung fu movies that's far superior to much of what was to follow. The storyline is fairly simple and straightforward, and the filmmaking is nigh flawless. It's always a joy to come across one of these early and often long forgotten classics.
