Huang Feng both writes and directs this 'Martial Arts World' thriller of a noble swordsman and a one-armed swordswoman up against the vicious Crimson Charm gang of thieves and cutthroats. The lovely and lethal Ivy Ling Po teams with the amazing Chang I (famous for his powerful presence in The Thundering Sword and The Silent Swordsman) for a classic tale of good versus evil in which the best man - and one-armed woman - wins.
Although King Cat was one of Chang I's earliest films, the young actor was already showing the promise that would make him the star of countless Shaw Brothers' martial arts movies. Chang plays Chan Chao, a knight of justice, who thwarts the plans of Minister Peng to assassinate the revered Judge Pao Cheng over and over again. Lo Lieh gives Chang a good run for his money as the evil and sinister henchman of Minister Peng
Veteran action actor and director Lu Chun-ku set his sights on a tale of Ching Dynasty royal intrigue as an excuse to hire his favorite action stars, gather three choreographers, and film one fight-filled conspiracy after another. Liu Hsueh-hua, is the title character, caught between battling princes. Then there's award-winning actor Ku Feng, 'Bastard Swordsman' Hsu Shao-chiang, 'King of Shaw Brothers' Screen Villains' Wang Lung-wei, 'Venom' Sun Chien, and even the director shows up to get his kicks in this danger-fraught adventure.
Sun Chung started exploring the kung-fu genre with this fascinating tale which mixes music and martial arts. It's a tale of conflicting clans and a mysterious song called 'The Proud One' which leads to slowly blossoming love as well as sudden death.
This 'bloody good' film is generally considered the second-to-last 'Venoms' film...but what a penultimate adventure it is. Kuo Chue takes on an amazing dual role and the complications and kung-fu which ensue are wonderful to watch. Even judged by exceptional 'Venom' standards, this one stands out.
In Swift Sword, popular director Ho Meng-hua has at his disposal a veritable cornucopia of established talent to create a searing martial arts extravaganza that reeks of steel-slashing bewitchment worthy of any swordplay epic.
Essie Lin Chia is the evil lady-warrior who raises the son of the swordsman who scorned her, hoping to make him unknowingly kill his twin sister. The result is a searing suspense thriller of familial love gone tragically wrong.
This was one of the rare films in which the majestic Ti Lung did not appear with David Chiang, his charismatic partner in many a Chang Cheh-directed kung-fu classic. At Chiang's side instead is the 'queen of Shaw Brothers kung-fu,' Lily Li, is an entertaining 'Martial Arts World' epic about a hero who robs from the robbers and gives to the poor. Naturally that doesn't make the robbers happy, and they use every sword in the area to try killing their adversary.
