Movie Reviews

Great sets and great humor!
Neil F. Sambol | Roswell, GA USA | 07/31/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This was a fun movie. I LOVED the primary character Ye. He was really funny - grabbing people's swords all of the time and then complaining when they knew who he was.

The sets were very elaborate and very realistic - except for the snow.

The story line was quite complex and twisted. However, the most interesting part was trying to figure out the dueling swordsman. Which one is good, which one is bad -- its not that simple...

One of the funniest parts was when the Ye character was surrounded by a bunch of bad guys. He says "oh, that's the seven stars formation of the xxx school." Then, when he defeats them all, their swords remain lying in the 7 stars formation with him inside of the loop. Someone asks what he is doing and he replies "I can't move, I'm in the 7 stars formation." Then he walks away, having already defeated the bad guys.

Very funny. Enjoyed the fight scenes, too. However, I enjoyed the humor more."
Great Sword play film

"I purchased this film in Chinatown on a trip to Los Angeles some time ago it's star packed and full of action throughout. Amazing sword fights and a desent story line, a classic Shaw Brothers film."
