The second movie in The Swordsman of All Swordsmen trilogy, this is about Shi Fang Yi (Polly Shang-kuan) and her family, who work to avenge the murder of her father at the hands of Chau Mutien (Yi Yuan). They spend five years under five masters and Hsih Fung Yi becomes the mistress of the double daggers, her older brother is a swordfighter, the middle brother can walk on water and fights with a chain, and the youngest brother can put his fingers through rocks and catch knives right out of the air.
Still, even with those skills they aren’t good enough. They need Tsia Ying-chieh (Tien Peng) to help them.
I mean, when the bad guy has a sword that can reflect the sun into your eyes, you need all the help you can get.
Directed by Chien Lung, this has Chau Mutien kill around fifty cops when he’s just trying to enjoy a brothel and then the heroes go through several movies worth of henchmen one after the other. If you like movies with a big body count, this is ready to sate your lust for murderous wuxia magic.
