Liu Yung and Sun Chien (the Korean kicking The Five Venom from Chang Cheh's internationally popular series) team up to investigate the martial-art murders of a supposedly mortally wounded swordsman, only to find deception, death, double-dealings, impostors and one deadly duel after another.
Tony Liu plays a hero (the same character from Clan of Amazons) tries to find out why two great heroes are fighting a duel. Many of the characters from Amazons are reprised. The usual Chu Yuan hijinks ensue. Yueh Hua and Ching Li have what amount to cameos in this one, Tony Liu really has to carry the movie. Too bad he's not given much to work with. His character is goofy and annoying, and his only reason for getting involved in the plot seems to be boredom and curiosity.
I must say, I thought Chu Yuan could do no wrong when adapting Gu Long works. This proved me wrong. It adds a bit of unfortunate comedy to the usual twisty "martial world" plotline. Even the art design is not up to the usual gorgeous standards.
Not awful, but not good. Stick with Magic Blade, Clans of Intrigue or Jade Tiger.
