Storyline

Li Zhishan is a rich man, but wealth cannot keep the loyalties of his wife, who has been visiting the bed of a rival. She helps plot against him, and the Vicious Long Brothers invade his home and steal the Golden Dragon Blade - a sword that makes its wielder unbeatable. Zhishan, crippled in the attack, and his young daughter are whisked away by a devoted servant, and the trio soon find shelter in the home of an herbalist. Years pass, the daughter grows up to be a lovely young woman and a powerful fighter, and the Long Brothers use the Golden Dragon Blade to gain power in the region. Zhishan's family of sorts has managed to stay well hidden, but a trip into the city - the daughter's first - sets off an old power struggle as Zhishan's wife discovers her daughter is quite alive.

Under-appreciated old school swordplay classic.
28 March 2006 | by jh_reaperSee all my reviews

This film is perfect for fans of martial arts swordplay type movies like Death Duel and One Armed Swordsman. The plot isn't too deep as you might expect, but the film is beautiful, well choreographed in the action area, and nicely acted. I must give credit to the director, the film looks and feels nicely and I was very into it - I can't believe I never heard of this film and just happened to come across it looking for another gem by searching for Vengeance. If you are a fan of martial art's cinema and haven't seen this one - don't feel bad, apparently many people haven't, but go out right now and order it, you won't be disappointed at all. I don't usually write reviews, but when a movie is a hidden gem, I feel the need to help spread the word and bring it to a wider audience. This ones worth checking out, and looking at it from a martial arts cinema stand point I rate it a 9/10.
