One of the defining lone swordsman films follows the adventures of King Eagle, a solitary knight who becomes entangled with a pair of warring clans in medieval China. Refusing to take sides, he only avenges the innocent people harmed by the conflict and must ultimately unleash the fury of his sword while navigating between a pair of beautiful twins leading the clans, one beautiful and the other utterly evil. Kung fu legend Ti Lung (Legend of the Drunken Master
; The Magic Blade
) heads up this stunning exercise in flashing steel and relentless martial arts mayhem.
