Hong Kong superstar Derek Yee directs an old school martial arts action adventure, Shaw Brothers style, in this classic story of a master swordsman, featuring spectacular action and stunning visuals, making this a wuxia classic for the 21st century.
Derek Yee (Director Full Throttle/Actor, Death Duel)
Tsui Hark (Producer Once Upon a Time in China)
Peter Ho (Monkey King)
A powerful swordsman is haunted by the destructive impact his deadly talents have on others. Weary of the bloodshed and violence from the martial arts world, he takes on the humble life a vagrant, wandering the fringes of society. But his violent past refuses to let him go, and the swordsman must regain the ability to wield his sword and fight those disrupting the peace he so desperately craves.
We like it because:
In this beautifully shot epic, two titans of Hong Kong cinema, Derek Yee and Tsui Hark, join forces for a thrilling remake of the Shaw Brothers classic Death Duel. This breathlessly exciting nod to Hong Kong action spectacles of old gives the ‘wuxia’ genre a deserved new lease of life in the 21st century. Visually stylish and packed with spectacularly choreographed action, insane special effects and lavish sets, SWORD MASTER is a thrilling throwback to Hong Kong cinema's past and a jaw-dropping, high kicking good time.
