Though theatrically released as a single movie, this odd period kung-fu yarn -- directed by Frankie Chan -- was released in video as two separate films. The movie centers on the relationship between two vastly different wandering swordsmen: one, Yip Hoi (Chan), is a lighthearted scoundrel, while the other, Fu Hung-suet (Ti Lung), is a crippled, epileptic warrior whose mother taught him from a tender age to seek single-minded revenge against those who murdered their family. The two run into each other in a small bucolic village, where Fu immediately falls in love with a beautiful prostitute with a heart of gold. At the end of Part One, Fu fails to kill the nefarious Ma Hung-kwan. As Part Two unfolds, Fu continues on his quest of vengeance. Later, he learns from his mother that he and Yip Hoi are in fact related.
