A film by Hark Tsui
Cast: Leon Lai, Donnie Yen, Honglei Sun
In the early 1600’s, the Manchurians have taken over sovereignty of China and established the Ching Dynasty. While many nationalist revolts still brew within the martial artists’ community, the newly set-up government immediately imposes a Martial Arts Ban, forbidding the practice of martial arts altogether in order to gain control and order. Wind Fire (Sun Hong-Lei), a surrendered military official from the previous dynasty, sees this as an opportunity to make a fortune for himself by helping to execute the new law. Greedy, cruel, and immoral, Wind Fire ravages the North-western China, and his next goal is to attack the final frontier, Martial Village. Fu Qingzhu, a retired executioner from the previous dynasty, feels the need to put a stop to this brutality and sets out to save Bowei Fortress. He brings Wu Yuanyin and Han Zhiban from the village with him to Mount Heaven to seek help from Master Shadow-Glow, a hermit who is a master of swords and leads a group of disciples.
Great film. There is a scene where 2 of them are fighting between the wall and going up and down the walls there were no wire to hold them on the top of that they were sword fighting I never seen that in a movie before. Plus they filmed in the mountain at -15 degrees It took forever to shoot this film.
