Critic Reviews for Butterfly and Sword
It would have been less of a yawn to watch more fully-developed characters and plotting. More substance and less midair kicks.

Audience Reviews for Butterfly and Sword
Mundane martial arts movie that has all the beautiful colors and fabrics and the flying action moves of the more famous movies of this genre, but doesn't put them together with a good story; it is all just window dressing over opaque glass. Even the acting is less than engaging. Quite disappointing.
Throw-everything-at-your-face old school wuxia crazyness. The credits say it was written by just one person, but you can tell there was probably a dozen of hands writting everything from stand alone scenes to one or two dialogues. What truly gives the movie it's juice is the characters and their interactions. A love triangle between Yeoh, Tony and Donnie, plus a good supporting cast and of course, Ching Siu-Tung pulling some wild over the top fight sequences. Nothing stands against the flying arrow bitch!
Butterfly and Sword is a typical Hong Kong martial arts movie from the early 90s. Its fast paced, and it has a lot of funny action scenes (splitting guys in half, kicking heads off, running through bodies, etc.). Watch only if you have nothing else to watch.
