Storyline

"99 have fallen, 1 remains." The Supreme Swordsman is a late, but celebrated entry into the long list of awesome Shaw Brothers swordplay epics. In feudal China, an extremely conceited swordsman named Qin Wu Xin slices his way through 99 of the best swordsman China has to offer so that he can add their famous blades to his infamous 100 Swords Mansion. Now, with only one sword left to claim, Qin Wu Xin sets his sights on the mighty Xuan Yuan Sword of the legendary Supreme Swordsman. Ironically, he is effortlessly defeated by the Supreme Swordsman due to his own inferior blade and vows to return with a worthy weapon. After questioning his master and a few locals he discovers a sword that could bring him the victory he is so obsessed with having. It is the one and only Cold Eagle Sword, belonging to the secretive Black Magic Clan, which Qin Wu Xin happens to be a member of. He becomes angered with his master for not divulging this information to him and pursues the mysterious Cold Eagle ... Written by Deadly_Ninja_Hunter

A little different
22 January 2011 | by See all my reviews

I think the other reviews already touched on the awkward change of pace and story that occurs roughly an hour in. I really liked the story early on, and even at that point it was a bit different. The villain had certainly killed many but was painted as more of an ambitious swordsman than someone ruthless. He was given a bit more focus early than I was expecting. But then you also had the great Ku Feng, who is by far one of my favorite actors from the Shaw era. Things were going pretty well and it felt like things could be wrapped up and the film length would be rather short, yet still be satisfying, but then things change. It really messes up the momentum, and though you still get the expected encounter at the end, it was a very odd detour that makes me pull back on my support a bit. Also, these are talented action actors -- why did they bother to speed up their movements in post production? It looks rather strange.
