Sword Master 2016 is a wu xia martial arts movie remake of a old Shaw Bros movie Death Duel 1977 starring Derek Yee as the main character now he back again as the director of the new version.The original version is not terrible but also not that good to begin with but the new version is absolutely better in every aspect.The character is more well developed,the cinematography is as good as a wu xia movie can get and the action scene is flat out awesome.I find the actors in this version fit with the story more than the old cast.The conflict between the two sword master played by Kenny Lin and Peter Ho is more fleshed out although some of the random stuff and a boring romantic subplot is still there but at least this time it not meaningless.They definitely up the wire work action in this one cause the original is traditional Chinese swordplay but it work well in this version.Highly recommend to martial arts movie fan
