This dazzling take on the classic wuxia adventure finds director Tam deconstructing the time-honoured plot of martial arts masters battling for the title of top swordsman. He makes stunning use of visual language, orchestrating colour and composition in a way that revolutionised the form. At the same time, the film honours the genre through its spectacular fight scenes, choreographed by masters Tony Ching Siu-tung and Tang Tak-cheung.
