Gordon Liu, Lau Kar Leung, Alexander Fu Sheng, Kara Hui, Hsiao Ho - all packed into one legendary Shaw Brothers Studio production released by 88films on blu ray. 

When the former member of a failing magical kung fu order threatens to destroy the remaining group’s reputation through his loud mouth insults and defamatory behaviour, an elite band of killers is dispatched to silence him forever.

Though perhaps the golden age of martial cinema had been and gone, this late entry wuxia-style film from The Shaw Brothers house of dreams was still able to pack a powerful punch. Written, directed, and starring Lau Kar Leung (The Spiritual Boxer, Spiritual Boxer II), this gloriously fast-paced drama which entertainingly mixes swordplay with hand to hand combat in a fabulously furious rollicking adventure weaves its own special kind of magic.

Director: Lau Kar Leung
