After the death of Marshal Yuen, a princess is arrested by a constable whilst training with her kung-fu teacher. They are soon drawn into a conflict which centres around the mysterious man with the golden snake sword - an incredibly powerful magical weapon. Golden Snake Man is seeking revenge on the castle of the Wan family, but Wan has married his former lover. The Five Poison Sect of fighting (and flying) women have entered into an uneasy alliance with the forces of the Manchu Master Wu to steal the golden snake sword. Wan's daughter is torn between her father and her love of the constable. The constable must decide between his brotherly love for the Golden Snake Man and his sense of justice. Meanwhile a blind old man seeks to return the powerful Sword Stained With Royal Blood to the son of Marshal Yuen. Written by Brian Rawnsley <rawnsleb@natlib.govt.nz>

Great Wuxia movie ,go get em' Golden Snake Man!
30 December 2012 | by dworldeaterSee all my reviews

The Sword Stained With Royal Blood is one of many Wuxia films that were getting pumped out like crazy in Hong Kong in the early 90's . Most of these martial arts/fantasy films are based on Chinese novels and the story lines are often as insane as the action on screen. The Sword Stained With Royal Blood indeed has both . It does have some flaws ( poor editing , wires can be seen in some scenes and the storyline is sporadic with sub plots galore), but more than makes up for it with an awesome cast and great, bloody flying swordsman action .With a cast of Yuen Biao as constable and lead character , Elvis Tsui as villain and Danny Lee to steal the show as superswordsman Golden Snake Man , you know you will have a memorable cinematic experience. Golden Snake Man and friends definitely deliver and The Sword Stained With Royal Blood is a solid entry to the swordsman genre . I definitely dig it.
