Two rival swordsmen, the heroic Fu Hung Hsieh and the wealthy Yen Nan-Fei, must team up to prevent the legendary Peacock Dart from falling into the hands of Mr. Yu and his evil criminal underworld. Traps, poisons, and double-crossings are everywhere in this spooky swordplay thriller from the Shaw Bros. Studio.Written by
Moody, well-lit kung fu saga as two mortal enemies are pursued by the legions of killers hired by the mysterious Mr. Yu. I saw this on television a long time ago and was not impressed. The new release, subtitled, is a joy to watch. The whole production is very unrealistic but that is not a distraction. We are in a fantasy world where swords can cut branches off of trees from a distance just by being spun in place really fast. The film is very unlike the usual Shaw Bros. films everyone is familiar with except during the fight scenes which are up to the Shaw Bros. high standards.
Recommended. It's a change of pace from your typical kung-fu film. Just remember, don't eat anything Devil Granny serves you.
