This film is based on the manhua comic series called 'Fung Wan' by Ma Wing-shing. Manhua is the Chinese equivalent of the Japanese Manga (Comics). See more »

The original Hong Kong version runs 38 minutes longer than the butchered American version. The scenes with Wind and Cloud as young children are cut the most, and the bamboo forest battle between Lord Conquer and Wind's father is one of many scenes missing altogether. The American version offers an English translation of the onscreen character names that accompany each character's first apperance in the film The cuts for violence, presumably made to secure a PG-13 rating, render much of the film incomprehensible.

Beautiful scenery, and good story sums up this gem of a martial arts film.
Three individuals, Lord Conquerer (Sonny Chiba), Wind (Ekin Cheng), Cloud (Aaron Kwok) gets entangled in an ambitious conquest scheme of Lord Conquerer. Later they part ways, and battle each other.
High quality is evident throughout this martial art film, and even after 10 years since it was made, it's still one of the best movie of this type. Made on high budget for Hong Kong movie, production is lavish, and scenes are breathtaking. This may be the precursor to other successful high budget movie such as "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon". You can see very young Qi Sue in the supporting role, as she's poised to be one of the A list actor of Hong Kong cinema for the next 10 years.
If you haven't seen this yet, you owe it to yourself to see it. It's a beautiful movie.
