Perils of the Sentimental Swordsman (1982)

Summary: Another great adaption
Bearing no similarity in plot what-so-ever with the first 2 Sentimental Swordsman movies, "Perils" is a weird movie with a misguided title, which combines titles of two novels, kinda like "Die Hard: Attack of the Clones." I really liked the movie initially, but after one more viewing, I found it pretty cheesy.

I would not recommend it to non-Chinese speakers at all, because even natives will be confused to the point of giving up (unlesss you are familiar with the novels). However, it does have enjoyable action with Ti Lung looking good most of the time--and bad occasionally. Lo Lieh once again takes off his underware for comic relief.

Overall, a pretty good mix between old school and new wave. Expect outdated dialogues.
