Editorial Reviews

He’s Taking Lethal to the Next Level!

True devotees of martial arts cinema have long lived in fear of the Bastard Swordsman! Unleashed on audiences by the blockbuster combination of Shaw Brothers Studios and legendary director Chang Cheh (Five Deadly Venoms, The Blood Brothers), this kung fu classic flawlessly blends phantasmagorical action sequences with staples of the wuxia genre. Starring Norman Chui (Hong Kong Godfather, 36th Chamber) as the most lethal bastard this side of Shaolin, this twisted tale of betrayal and bloodshed showcases a revolutionary style of wire-work and action choreography that inspired today’s most revered filmmakers. So sit back, dim the lights, and prepare to be schooled in the art of the kill as you experience the bastard’s signature move: the mind-meltingly lethal Silkworm Technique!

An earlier Wuxia film that was released in the early 80s at the same time of other movies like Holy Flame of the Martial World,Zu Warriors,Shaolin Prince.The movie is directed by Tony Liu Juk,who has not been recognized like other Chinese directors like Chang Cheh,John Woo,Yuen Woo Ping,Lau Kar Leung,Sammo Hung.

Bastard Swordsman is a two movie series about two clans at war.Wu Dang and Invincible Clan.Alex Man Chi Leung(New Tales of Flying Fox,Journey of the Doomed,Hidden Power of Dragon Sabre,Tragic Hero) stars as the chief of Invincible Clan.Wong Yung(Supreme Swordsman,Godfather of Canton,Bat without Wings,Proud Twins)stars as the chief of Wu Dang.The Lead actor is Norman Chu AKA Tsiu Siu Keung who has starred in many martial arts movies like Duel to the Death,the Sword with Adam Cheng,36th Chamber,Shaolin Mantis,Hong Kong Godfather,Return of the Deadly Blade,Challenger,Loot,What Price Honesty,Lady Assassin,Fiery Family.He is rejected by the Wu Dang Clan for being a bastard child and is more like a servant who cannot be taught how to fight.

There are plenty of action scenes wether it is with all types of martial arts weapons and hand to hand combat.There is also some Wire Fu but it is used to the best ability.There are many famous martial artists in the series that play supporting roles that include Wilson Tong(Daggers 8),Sun Chien(5 Venoms),Lo Meng(5 Venoms,Ip Man 2,Gallants)Yuen Tak(the Master,Hero SB),Kwan Feng(Monkey Kung Fu,5 Superfighters),Tony Liu(Human Lanterns,Lady Assassin,Secret Service of Imperial Court.

The Bastard Swordsman is a classic Martial Arts movie. For anyone who grew up on Black Belt Theater or even better, NYC during the early 80's (42nd street) with the multiple "Karate Flicks" for $1 at 9am during the weekdays, this one is a keeper. It is beautifully filmed, the action/sword play is fantastic, & the story line is a good fit for the film. One of the top 10 Sword films that I've seen & own, along with Soul of the Sword. When I watch a Martial Arts flick, I want different styles facing off against each other, and constant better than average fight scenes. Bright colors, a good script help make a film great, but the action is what counts! This movie is a must have for lovers of Sword Play & plenty of action!

This film is equal parts great Kung Fu action, grindhouse b-movie special effects, and a classic (even if somewhat predictable) story. With unrequited love, secret masters, nearly constant Kung Fu/swordplay, and plenty of fun plot twists, this is a perfect Saturday afternoon Kung Fu film in every sense.

The hero of the story is an orphan taken in by the legendary Wudang Temple as a servant. He is teased and endlessly picked on by the other students, even though his heart is the purest of them all. When a rival school re-ignites a feud with the leader of Wudang, all bets are off, and our reluctant hero is forced to rise to the occasion.

In many ways, this film reminds me of the early days of Yuen Wo Ping's work (circa "Miracle Fighters"), but better! Add great choreography, and two of the Five Deadly Venoms to the mix, and it becomes quickly obvious why this is a must see wuxia classic! I'm happy to add this lesser known classic to my collection :)

PS- For any internal style martial artists: The films rather literal take on "silk reeling techniques" is both humorous and enjoyable...

The story line in this movie didn't become clear until after a moments into it. You almost felt sorry for the one they called "Bastard". The fighting styles and skills were spectacular and well choreographed. This is truly a Shaw Brothers classic. It was worth the money spent except for my copy whereas the sound was not that great even this was a brand new copy. I hope that when you purchase this movies your sound is better than mine was.

Norman Sui stars as the title character in this crazy action packed, special effects martial arts bonanza.Yun fei Yang is the bastard son of the leader of the wutang school who also teaches him kung fu in secret. They have a rivalry with Dugu wu Di . The movie does get a bit crazy at times but i still enjoyed it. If you like over the top action then this is for you.

High-speed four-on-one fights, groovy training sequences, albino brother and sister assassins, diabolical laughter from an outrageous villain who sits on an evil kitty-cat throne, a guy in a cocoon, all set to Monday-Night-Football-esque music define this intense, quirky fantasy wuxia. A freaking COCOON. Your brain will repeatedLY text your eyes during the movie - "BRO, SRSLY?" "WAIT WUT?" "DUDE WTF RU WATCHING?"

Gonna make it short and simple the story is good and the fighting is over the top. The fight scenes are done very well, my only complaint is at times in the movie they speed up the fighting. And it makes it a bit comical at times. Can't wait to watch the sequel. Oh yes and awesome it was re-dubbed by Funimation which i didn't like, i enjoy the old crappy voice actors from back in the day, not the professional work from Funimation. It is weird to hear Bulma, and the narrator of Yu Yu Hakusho talking in the movie. That really is just a preference for me but, that was the only thing i didn't like
