I guess Frankie Chan was so pleased with his music for this film that he decided to remake it 15 years later as A WARRIOR'S TRAGEDY (aka THE INVINCIBLE POWER OF KINDNESS), and Ti Lung liked his character enough to play him again in the remake.
The plot is typical Chor Yuen wu xia, a highly convoluted tale of treachery in the martial world, with numerous twists and turns before we find out who everybody is and what their real agenda might be.
Production values are suitably high, with the usual lush visuals. The action is mostly forgettable, but competent.
Pretty good stuff!
