Hark Tsui's debut. So rough and so absurd, but still able to feel his passion on film making and wuxia novels. Cannot enjoy or understand if you don't have much knowledge about the world of wuxia. Budget seems too small, while the scale of the story is too big. Hark's keen sense against film making can be seen in how he mixes so well the two genres, wuxia action and suspense, which seem not to be a good match. It's still valuable for knowing Hark Tsui's origin.
Hark Tsui's very first film. I watched it when I was about 9 years-old when it was shown on TV back in Taiwan. The movie plot was about this women using poisonous bugs as her choice of art to assasinate other martial artists. It's got quite a memorab...(read more)le fighting scenes though most of the special effects are so fake to me even back then. Since it's the very first Hark Tsui film and knowing that it was pretty remarkable, I had to ask the staff to add it!!
