Summary: melodramatic wuxia romance
B-movie version of classic wuxia popular at the box office in early 90's Hong Kong. Producer Stephen Shin cast some 2nd tier actors [instead of Andy Lau and Simon Yam] alongside some of the top female stars of the time. Shin gets Philip Kwok to handle the Action Direction which is really well done while he gets inexperienced director Yu Mang-Sang to handle the cheesy "romance" and "melodrama" dialogue scenes which fall flat. Some doves from Woo's The Killer [1989] get some work. Kara Hui is quite charming as usual.
Reviewer Score: 6
