A wuxia classic, directed by Cheh Chang, who directed a lot of great wuxia films like "one-armed swordsman" series. Pei-Pei Cheng plays the same character, female swordsman Golden Swallow, as King Hu's "Come Drink With Me." Comparing to King Hu, Cheh Chang definitely emphasizes more on storytelling and sword fighting. Especially in filming actions, Cheh takes much more time on actual battles than the process, and camerawork is really modern and dynamic because of efficient use of hand-held cameras and other many devices. In terms of drama, however, at least in this film, Cheh is a little bit too formal and explains too much by words. It is disappointing to see the core of this film is love-triangle of two men and the heroin and her at first being an independent and smart female swordsman but later getting just a normal heroin who struggles to choose one true love. I like Golden Swallow in "Come Drink With Me" much better, since she never yields to men as a woman. Cheh is surely a good storyteller, but what he is interested in is different from King Hu. Soundtrack in this film is cool, by the way.
