Editorial Reviews

She'll teach you a thing or two about bloodshed.
From the vaults of the Shaw Brothers hails a film that showcases the legendary wuxia masters' talent like a blood-soaked prize. In a performance celebrated as her magnum opus, Cheng Pei-Pei (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) memorably demands body parts from her foes in a vengeful rage.
Cheng is the Lady Hermit: a paragon of poise and stealth, in hiding for years, plotting revenge ever since her injurious run-in with the sinister Black Knight. Shih Szu (Shaolin Handlock) is a lethal go-getter with wicked bullwhip skills who begs Cheng to teach her, hoping to slay the demon herself. The Black Knight's days are numbered as the Lady Hermit and her protege perfect the technique to take him down - one called the Flying Tiger.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Lady Hermit, how's your waist holdin' up?" October 3, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The swaggerful blare of them trumpets as the Shaw Brothers logo fills up the screen, and I'm transported back to old school kung fu theater. The movie of choice, this instance, is THE LADY HERMIT, one of Cheng Pei-Pei's very best, doubt me not. There's a trace of that superhero element in this 1971 wuxia pien classic in that Cheng Pei-Pei's character, Shang Yu-ling, walks amongst the common folks in secret, passing herself off as a lowly servant of the local security firm. Even as whispers of the awe-inspiring swordswoman, the Lady Hermit, circulate from village to village.

Into town strides Miss Cui-ping (Szu Shih), the young and impetuous bullwhip-wielding swordswoman seeking to expand her martial arts thru apprenticeship under the legendary Lady Hermit. Cui-ping has a grievance against the fiendish big bad known as the Black Demon. Except that Shang Yu-ling won't hear that noise. It's been three years of hiding and recuperating since her near fatal encounter with the malevolent Black Demon, and nothing will keep her from exacting bloody vengeance. She'd been politely spurning the advances of Wu Chang-chun, the earnest security escort. No one suspects that her "old" maid act is a disguise. Shang Yu-ling isn't about to allow Miss Cui-ping to ruin her steadfast plotting.

But the Lady Hermit is forced to spring into action when the hot-headed Cui-ping gets into a scrape and is targeted for assassination. Cui-ping's pluck and determination eventually win the Lady Hermit over and off they go, student and sifu, brushing up on their Flying Tiger technique, hoping that it's enough to prevail against the Black Demon's lethal Shadowless Claw maneuver.

I love way too many of these movies, but this one has everything I love from the genre and nothing that bothered me. Let's see how specific I can get... this is easily one of my favorite pre-Venom Mob Shaw Brothers films that doesn't have a one-armed hero. That still covers a lot of ground. It's actually a really well constructed story. Cheng Pei-Pei is not just a great action star (or action dancer if you'd prefer), but the best actress of the era I've seen. And hey, how about that -- Lo Lieh as a good guy. I was suspicious of him the entire time but only because he's usually a great villain.
