It’s a blur of lethal blades as two of the Shaw Brothers’ most respected swordsmen, Derek Yee and Pai Piao, slash and slice their way through The Supreme Swordsman. After a decade spent working on the sets of many Shaw Brothers classics, Li Pai-ling steps up to direct this fast-paced display of expert swordplay.
A devious swordsman carves his way across China, cutting down every reputable blade master he can find. After taking the weapons of 99 defeated adversaries as trophies, he turns his eyes to his final goal: defeating the one known as the Supreme Swordsman and claiming the legend’s title and sword as his own. The scoundrel’s malicious rampage seems unstoppable – until the son of a fallen sword maker finds the power to avenge his father’s death.
