The daughter of the master
24 May 2009 | by (Hamburg, Germany) – See all my reviews

A master of the Wudang style is poisoned by Japanese fighters because they couldn't defeat him in an honest fight. His daughter (Lin Quan) is repeatedly attacked, too. In one remarkable scene, she spares the life of an injured and defenseless enemy and obtains valuable information in return, for he realizes she is an honorable opponent. She escapes and goes to see her uncle who lives far away in the mountains. After he taught her some powerful new techniques, she returns to have her revenge on the Japanese.

The strong points of the movie are the fight scenes (no jumping to tree-tops, no wire tricks, just the real hits and kicks, totally believable) and the great landscapes which are well photographed. On the other hand, the Anti-Japanese propaganda seems a bit overdone to an European audience who doesn't watch Kungfu flicks for the politics. But that is naturally a point an Asian audience will feel different about, so I'll ignore that and give 7 of 10 stars, anyway.
