Editorial Reviews

In one of his early films, acclaimed director John Woo crafts an action-packed tale of a son who recruits two master swordsmen to help avenge his father’s murder.

Customer Reviews

Last Hurrah for Chivalry is one of the best martial arts movie I've ever seen.
Denis-Steve Giguere
There's a ton of action, the characters are fun and have some dimension, the story flows well and is creative, and it's just a good movie.
Garvinstomp
My movie had sub-titles so it didn't take away anything from the movie. great ending!

Wei Pai stars as a master swordsman who loves his sister and always tries to help people in need. Damian Lau (Duel to the Death) stars as a drunkard who's sword skills are at least equal to Wei Pai's. A man named Master Kao is looking for men to revenge his family who were killed at the start of the movie. Master Kao gets the 2 swordsmen to help him out, but he seems to be hiding what his plan really is. I thought I knew exactly what was going on, but I got a major surprise during the last act of the movie. The story is good for the most part, but the action is definitely the best thing about the movie.

If you have seen The Hand of Death, then you know that John Woo was a good kung fu movie maker. Last Hurrah for Chivalry is his masterpiece. There are plenty of heroic moments, and it gets pretty bloody, but John Woo's style is very unique. The story is told well, the 2 heroes have some good comedic exchanges, and the villains are all extremely tough. It covers all the essentials. 110% effort was put into every part of this movie, including the sets. Golden Harvest tried hard to rival the Shaw Brothers sets, and their hard work really pays off. The sets never feel cheap, and the outdoor locations are also stunning. The cinematography always feels alive and makes scenes better than they would be just sitting idle. You can see why John Woo moved onto bigger and better things not long after making this.

The action is top notch. The choreography isn't the absolute best you will ever see, but the directing and editing are superb, and the action scenes are very intense.

Martial arts mayhem, with a touch of humor in the tradition of the Shaw Brothers productions, but produced by Golden Harvest studios. Themes include honor, loyalty, betrayal and subterfuge. Much better production than the Jackie Chan films from the same time period.
Last Hurrah for Chivalry is even better in DVD. This widesrceen production is a "10" in terms of picture quality! The Mandarin dubbed version of the movie is especially good. Excellent color and focus are good adjectives to describe the video portion. I believe the video has been reworked, because for a film that was originally released in 1979 the video still seems fresh.
The audio quality is equal to the task. The producers have spared no expense and have transfer the original soundtrack recording to Dolby Digital 5.1. I assume it was remastered to make the conversion, because it doesn't say so on the box. Not many studios now adays will go to such expense to update a movie over 20 years old.
By the way this DVD has the original Cantonese version with English subtitles, or you can watch the film dubbed in English or Mandarin, with a choice of English, simplified or traditional Chinese subtitles.
I have the original video of the film as well and noticed the English translation is some instances is different than the DVD, but the video quality on the DVD just blows the video away. If you have a DVD player...get the DVD... You won't be disappointed.
This is my favorite John Woo film. It's better than the latest films he has produced here for the US market, including Broken Arrow etc..

From the director of Hard Boiled and The Killer comes this dazzling, brilliant, flawless Kung Fu flick called "Last Hurrah For Chivalry". The one thing that stands out from everything else is the acting and the fighting. Damian Lau and Wei pai take not only the sword fights to another level but also a brilliant team of acting. I loved how they combined the sword fights with hand to hand combat, the transitions between the two were awesome!. I was amazed with every minute of this film. If you dont have this yet, get it right now! Dragon Dynasty is one of the best places to get your martial arts films, classics and modern kung fu flicks. Don't miss this one!

I wrote a review for the subtitled version of the movie but it was misplaced under the dubbed version. Check it out. Another thing I'd like to add, however, is that this movie, unlike many other old KF pictures, has really good picture quality--the colors are rendered so beautifully--not faded like in many of the older films. And why would you buy dubbed when you could buy subtitled?? Tsk tsk.

I had been waiting to see this film for a while, so when I started watching and the first fight scene was painfully slow (even for the late 70's), I prepared myself for disappointment. Luckily for me, disappointment was no longer on the menu. What was, you ask? Wei Pai (Snake, of "5 Deadly Venoms") playing a nice guy, beautiful picture quality, and sword-fights that just kept gettin' better. The latter fights are far from the best ever, but they are still a lot of fun to watch.

The story is okay, nothing too fancy; a man's new wife and a lot of his clan are wiped out by a rival (Lee Hoi San, of "everything" fame), so he looks for fighters to help dispense some justice. Wei Pai and Damian Lau play the swordsmen in question, befriended by the widower, prior to their revenge-soaked undertaking. Pretty cool stuff. Though I really could have done without the "sleeping sword". I dislike when a movie that keeps the sense of humor to a minimum suddenly breaks into something ridiculous. I certainly can't criticize creativity, it just kind of interrupts the flow.

An early film on the resume of John Woo, it has his trademark violence, deception and male-bonding. I love how dudes in his movies become friends by meeting and simply suggesting that they become friends. Usually, that only happens at 3am in the laundromat between weirdos, who recently consumed a quart of whiskey, each.

Dragon Dynasty does it again with this marvelous release, with plenty of special features. This looks just like a Shaw Brothers production with its lavish sets and costumes, but was actually done by Golden Harvest. The picture quality is fantastic. Recommended.

1979
