Movie Info

With an entirely new set of actors, this movie continues the story from Swordsman (1990). Blademaster and his martial arts school decide to retire to a distant mountain.

He finds that they have been attacked, and their leader, Princess Yin-Yin, toward whom he has some romantic feelings, has been abducted. The attacker is her evil uncle Fong, who years before overthrew Yin-Yin's father and took over their sect. Fong

Camp it may be, and messy, but mundane it ain't.

For the uninitiated, much of the action might seem confusing, but for those who have a familiarity with the conventions of the genre, the film's fight scenes are a real kick, getting even wilder and wilder as the film progresses.

One of the all-time great classic Hong Kong films.

Dazzling photography and equally dazzling fight scenes.

Eye candy for the sword-happy freak in you, and nothing more.

Both Jet Li and producer Hark are top notch Hong Kong film people. It's just too bad they couldn't seem to get it together this time out.

Audience Reviews for The Legend of the Swordsman (Xiao ao jiang hu zhi: Dong Fang Bu Bai) (Swordsman II)

This HK movie gleefully pours a twisty plot into a sprawling, brawling spectacle of swordplay.

Skip the first movie and go directly for Kung Fu gold. One of Jet Li's best. Brigitte Lin steals the movie as a man transforming into a woman to gain martial arts power.
