Editorial Reviews

This Shaw Brothers classic, masterfully directed by Hua Shan (The 14 Amazons), is a harrowing lesson in achieving the coveted Number One sword-wielding status. Ti Lung (Opium and the Kung- Fu Master, A Better Tomorrow) is the Nameless Swordsman bent on defeating the faceless King of Swords to claim the title, and the glory, for himself. Hordes of fighters lunge from the shadows to cut down the mysterious challenger. Even a cunning seductress takes a stab at him in a revealing bath house assassination. It is said that a man s weapon reflects his utmost dreams, desires and fears. A warrior with no name and one motive has a soul as merciless as cold steel.

I hate you, Funimation. PLEASE RE-ISSUE THE SHAW BROS. STUFF SO I WON'T HAVE TO PAY A TRILLION DOLLARS FOR "THE DUEL"! GOD!!! If you can find this DVD, it is highly recommended for it's excellent transfer quality, picture and so forth unlike their crappy releases of Shaolin Handlock and 14 Amazons. UGH!

I'm a huge Jimmy Wang Yu fan so inevitably I liked this movie. It's not my favorite Jimmy Wang Yu movie but it's got a nice story and LOTS OF BLOOD SPLASHY HAPPINESS!! Recommended.

The video wise, the movie is crisp and clean. In this movie, jimmy wang yu plays a character that puts honor above all. The movie is a good story and the action is good, but it languishes and the watcher is stuck with unbelievable circumstances in which no one would endure. A good Fu to add to the collection but not one that you will want to watch over and over.

Reposting my review from IMDb.com, and, minor spoilers...

I can't help but wonder how this movie came about. Yu Wang was huge in the late 60s and had just done The One-Armed Swordsman. Some executive might have said "Hey we had this huge hit where Yu Wang was disabled. Let's think of another major injury he has to overcome and it'll be a hit!" They settled on blindness, but Chang Cheh thought they were idiots, so they got someone else to direct it. I doubt this really happened, but blindness isn't the only obstacle for Yu Wang in this movie.

Well, naturally there are dozens of armed men for him to cut down. But what bothered me most here was there are so so many dumb and stubborn characters. The melodrama factor is really high too. But, I watch these for the action, and it was pretty good. The main villain, Feng Tien, admits pretty early that he's not as good as Yu Wang, but they still get a few fights out of the pair because of the villain's plans. Great here as a villain, especially what he pulls on Yu Wang near the end, oh my god.
