Movie Info

This fast-paced action film from the Shaw Brothers studios takes its inspiration from the events of the Sung Dynasty. The story begins with Bao Ting-tien (Ti Lung), the leader of a group of Sung rebels, attempting to rescue a prince from the Ching forces that have overtaken northern China. Bao crosses paths with Little Bat (David Chiang), a mysterious kung-fu expert, and the two decide to team up so they can pull off this daring mission. Unfortunately for both men, the odds are stacked against them -- their mission involves crossing a long, perilous rope bridge and storming into a compound guarded by countless soldiers. The action that follows involves heroic sacrifices, cliffhangers galore and plenty of bloodshed. The end result was a hard-hitting action film and another hit for "the Iron Triangle" (this was the nickname given to the teaming of director Chang Cheh and stars David Chiang and Ti Lung).

(***): [img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/user/icons/icon14.gif[/img] This is based on the movie that you get in the Mill Creek 50 movie pack for Martial Arts. The DVD description is for this movie but I do not think this is the same movie, they just have the same title. This one is a standard martial arts film from the 70s/80s and it action packed and fans will enjoy it.
