Product Description

Legend of the Shadowless Sword, The (DVD)

927 A.D. The Killer-Blade Army has toppled the ruling dynasty, plunging the kingdom into chaos. The only remaining heir, Prince Jung-Hyun (Lee Seo Jin) is living in exile, unaware of his family's dark fate. Still loyal to the dynasty, the beautiful and deadly warrior Soha (Yoon Soy) sets out to find Jung-Hyun and guide him to become the great leader he was born to be. But with the Army's greatest assassins and the criminal underworld hunting them, Soha and Jung-Hyun are swept into an explosive, nonstop battle of swords, wits and bloodshed as they fight to reclaim the fallen throne.



A Wuxia adventure out of South Korea, The Legend of the Shadowless Sword is a handsome martial arts epic by Kim Yung-jun (Flying Warriors). The film's simple story allows for exceptionally creative action sequences about every three to four minutes, while simultaneously building a noble tale full of faith, love, and sacrifice. A beautiful female warrior named Yeonsoha (Yoon So-yi) goes in search of the last, living prince of the Balhae dynasty and its kingdom, overrun years before by the Geordan empire. The prince, Jeong Hyeon (Seo Jin Lee), has been in hiding 14 years as a black market trader, concerned primarily for his own safety and deeply cynical about any thought of going back to retrieve his family's throne. Yeonsoha, however, proves persuasive, especially in light of the many attempts on Jeong's life by a gang of assassins. The shady killers are led by a vengeance-seeking Kun (Hyeong Jun-Shin) and his assistant, (Ki-Yong Lee), another sword-wielding babe who gets into plenty of wild skirmishes with Yeonsoha.

The story essentially follows Jeong and Yeonsoha's efforts to get back to a waiting army of Balhae exiles awaiting a king's leadership. As the hours and days pass, Jeong gets in touch with the man he once was, a fearless warrior whose exploits on the battlefield are well-known to Yeonsoha, whose connection to the prince seems mysteriously personal. The film's numerous fight scenes are never redundant, employing all manner of props and ideas for exciting fights. But it's the performances that really hold everything together, the deep if understated emotions and the excitement of watching two mismatched lead characters slowly realize how important they are to one another. --Tom Keogh

"The Legend of the Shadowless Sword" would be considered among the greatest wuxia epics of our time but for one little detail: the world has already experienced the unspeakable brilliance of films like Hero and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. And make no mistake, this film is Korea's attempt to duplicate the success of these modern classics both artistically and financially. The result is an almost-great film steeped in female empowerment, classic martial-arts philosophy, and Korean history that only missed classic status by a decade or so.

First off, let me say that the leading ladies of "Shadowless" are amazing. Yun So-i is brilliant as Soha, a female warrior tasked with bringing an exiled prince back home after an organization known as The Killer Blade Army murders the entirety of the royal family, leaving him as the only successor to the throne. Soha and the prince, Jeong-Heyon (played by Lee Seo-jin) who is also quite the fighter, are tracked and ambushed by the Killer Blades led by a seriously vamped-out lady killer. The confrontations between the opposing sword-wielding visions of beauty provide some seriously exciting duels that are on par with the best of the genre.

The heart of the story largely focuses on the classical myth/philosophy of Asian swordplay that each blade has within it an evil spirit that gathers strength as it drinks human blood. This spirit is said to be able to envelope and consume it's user once it gathers enough strength through death and suffering. This is a fantastic metaphor for the effect taking a life has on a person's being.

Shadowless Sword is the second film effort by the director of Bichunmoo. In my opinion, it may have surpassed the first film or at least equal to it.

This film revolves around the story of 2 feuding noble families, the House of Bael has been on the receiving end of violent attacks by the Killer Blade army. Almost all of the Royal Family have murdered by the leader of the Killer Blade army, except one. A prince who went into hiding because he believed himself unworthy of royalty because he felt like there is nothing that can be done of the strife in his country. It is up to a female warrior called Soha to convince him to lay his claim upon the throne. Which it turns out harder than it seems that the remaining heir does not want to become King. The prince served in his father's military and there is a link/bond between the prince and his female protector. The villain is evil enough that audinces can dispise him at the same time pity him, yes, even the villain has his own "justified motivation". The action starts when the bad guys start pursuing the good guys.

The action is impressive. as in most korean martial arts films, it has an influence of Crouching tiger Hidden Dragon, but believe me when I say it can stand on its own. The swordfights are well choreographed, Woon So-yi (from Arahan)can move as gracefully as any ballerina. The underwater scenes are well-shot and the sword fighting is well-paced. Unlike other Korean action films like Natural City, there is hardly any slow-mo.

I'm not sure what they are selling in amazon, but it is probably a Malaysian/Taiwan copy. Just be careful, the quality of these dvds sometimes is not as good as the original imported ones, which is why they are cheap.

During the Korean New wave, the country has come out with real phenomenal dramas, horror, and a few swordplay epics. Two of the more successful films of Korean epics are the terrific Period adventure film "Musa the Warrior" and the Wuxia Fantasy Epic "Bichunmoo". There have also been other attempts to produce a Wuxia epic and most of them are either a hit or a miss. "Shadowless Sword" (aka. Muyeong Geom, retitled "Legend of Shadowless Sword") is from Kim Yung-jun, the same director of "Bichunmoo". This film fares a lot better when in regards to screenplay and action sequences compared to Kim`s first Wuxia film. The direction is much more coherent and solid this time. Action Junkies will certainly be entertained with this film, even though it was released 3 years ago in 2005 (despite New Line has invested in this film, it is now only getting a U.S. release?), the film still stands as one of the most entertaining Wuxia epics I've seen from South Korea.

10th century Korea, the Balhae Dynasty have all but fallen due to an invasion. Resistance fighters are hard pressed to find a new leader when all members of the Royal family have perished save one; Prince Jeong Hyeon (Seo Jin Lee). To avoid attention, a lone female warrior named Soha (Yoon So-yi, ARAHAN) is dispatched to find the Prince. Unbeknownst to her, the self-exiled Prince has become a dealer of used goods and have no intensions of returning to royalty. To make matters more complicated, the Killer Blade Army led by Gun Hwa-Pyeong (Hyeong Jun-Shin) with his second in command; lovely Mae (Ki-Yong Lee) is also on the trail of the Prince to assassinate him. Soha must convince the wayward prince just how important he is to her country's fate, awaken his fighting skills and protect him from the Killer Blade army.
