Another Chor Yuen interpretation of a Ku Long story, with Fu Sheng taking the place typically reserved for Ti Lung as the lead - which is the film's weakness. Great (complex) story and stunning set designs and costumes, but Fu Sheng looks like a dick in his costume/wig and doesn't fit the character - or look too hot with a sword. Thankfully, there's Yueh Hua and Derek Yee to raise the bar, and the film generally goes much better when Fu Sheng isn't on screen. I guess Ti Lung was on vacation or something...
