The movie opens with a duel between Ti Lung and Chan Wai Man. Ti Lung has a special technique where he pierces his opponent's shoulder blade and the tip of his sword is always left behind. Chan Wai Man manages to escape and goes to see a doctor played by Ku Feng. Ku Feng seems like a good doctor, but there is a lot more to him than meets the eye. He is changing Chan Wai Man into a different person and making him stronger than he was before. Why is he doing this? Watch and find out!

This movie is crazy. It is serious, yet quite funny too (thanks to Alexander Fu Sheng). Sun Chung may be the best director the Shaw Brothers ever had and he shows why with this movie. There is also a subplot where Lily Li is trying to get Alexander Fu Sheng to become her husband. Kara Hui and Shih Szu also star and both are very good in their roles. I don't really want to give anything away. Whether you are a kung fu fan or not, make sure to see this movie, or at least give it a rental.

As far as the action goes, it isn't the most important part of the movie, but there is still plenty of fighting. It is very well choreographed and beautifully shot. Tong Gai is the action director and he never disappoints.

4.5/5

The Mandarin audio sounds perfect, the picture quality is crystal clear, the subtitles are well written, and get this, THERE IS AN ENGLISH DUB!! It doesn't even say it on the back of the DVD case, but trust me, there is an English dub included, and it sounds very good.

In 1978-79, director Sun Chung, who noted author Ric Meyers calls the "David Lean of Hong Kong", did a successful three picture deal with Shaw Brothers- "Avenging Eagle", "The Kung-Fu Instructor" & this one. I never saw this one before, and I loved it. One tiny notch below "Avenging Eagle", and, no, there is no shortage of martial arts action, expertly choreographed by Tang Chia & Huang Pei-Chi. Great performances by the elegant Ti Lung, comical Fu Sheng, two hotties-Lily Li & Shih Szu, Ku Feng & Chan Hui-Min (who's rarely looked better using a long-handled halberd). Interesting story that deviates from the usual son avenges father, but there is a revenge theme here with a bit of a twist though.

As usual with the Shaws, opulent and ornate sets, and, as usual with Image Entertainment (who I've praised in other reviews), a fantastic job with this DVD treatment; remastered & widescreen picture. There's a choice in audio between Mandarin (with remastered subs) or English (the good, familiar "Drive-In Movie" voices). While not as prolific as Chang Cheh or "The Pops", creative Sun Chung uses his trademark style which separated him from the rest. If you enjoy Shaw Brothers & old-school fu, then you should get this; I thought it was great.

This film teams Fu Sheng and Ti Lung with both playing somewhat not so good guy roles the character to watch is the villian who fights with a halbred. The fight between him and Ti Lung early inthis film on a darken street is a classic, Fu Sheng does'nt really do much heavy duty fighting in this film but adds comedy to help the story along. I only gave this film 4 stars because the plot was the build up to this character and Ti Lungs second comfortation with not much action in between all the way to the end. Well worth adding to any serious martial art film collection.

With this line (translated from Mandarin), the two lead characters of "The Deadly Breaking Sword" are ultimately defined; each has their own reputation as swordsmen, but regardless of exactly where and how they learned their fighting talents (or how they gained their respective standings in society), they turn out to be equals in more ways than one

The basics of the plot (and the "signature" move of Ti Lung's character) have been fairly well established in the other reviews here, and the review by writer Mark Pollard (on the Kung Fu Cinema website) truly catches the essence of what this movie can give to the receptive viewer. Of the three films [Alexander] Fu Sheng made with director Sun Chung, this DVD is the only LEGIT one domestically available.

I sought out this team-up of Fu Sheng and Ti Lung (their second with Chung, after "Avenging Eagle", available on DVD as an import or "bootleg") because of the significance of the injury Fu Sheng acquired during the making of it. (A wire snapped from a rigging he had on, and he landed on his head, so he likely had a concussion.) This accident, plus the worser calamity that occurred during the production of "Heroes Shed No Tears" (a broken leg), would alter his his film career drastically. Judging from the finished film, "TDBS" got finished with no complications, and this film is the last time in a Shaw Brothers movie we see the "vintage" Fu Sheng in action. After his recovery, he wouldn't regain all his speed and moves, but he came close. (A double--NOT a post-production addition!--handles more tricky moves for Fu Sheng in some of "TDBS", but such is the skill of the film editor that it's very hard to pick up where Fu Sheng begins and the double finishes out. More than once, I found myself going, "Hey!
