This is the Chinese version of Japanese movie Eleven Samurai. Band of six assassins are sent to kill brother of emperor who killed theirs boss who were trying to defend few peasants. Emperor's brother can't be prosecuted for his crime and the whole clan should suffer because of theirs boss offended emperor's relative. One member of clan convince authority to postpone the verdict of informal court for one month and thats the time-frame for assassins kill the emperors brother who is heading to visit emperor in major city. There is not so much fighting scenes and swordsmanship is really poor here. Although it is standard Chinese swordplay movie and the story is good.
