description

What started as the masterful kung-fu filmmaker's homage to the heroic Sung Dynasty Yang family becomes a furious rumination on heroic sacrifice when international idol Alexander Fu Sheng died in a car accident midway through production. Wanting to immortalize Sheng's final, unfinished performance, Liu carried on. The result is unique in the director's extraordinary filmography in its emotional intensity and kung-fu power. There are heartbreaking references to the tragedy throughout, but the stunning climax is truly unforgettable. It must be seen to be believed....

Old School
One of the films I remember fondly from my childhood, a real old fashioned kung fu film.
Awesome in all senses, at times overplayed with a slight cheesiness that is disregarded as quickly by the fantastic choreography, first rate cast and simple story told boldly.
Beautifully restored picture and sound, seen for me for the first time in widescreen.
A quality dvd.
