Sword Master (2016) Derek Yee & Tsui Hark
Sword Master (2016) Derek Yee & Tsui Hark
4176DVD
 

A Visual Eye-Popping Wuxia Masterpiece

   

Original Chinese Title: SAN SHAO YE DE JIAN [Sword of the Third Young Master]


director: Derek Yee (Yee Tung-Shing)        producer: Tsui Hark
starring: Lin Geng-Xin Hsieh Shao-Feng Peter Ho Yen Shisan Jiang Yi-Yan

  

In 1977, Derek Yee starred in the Shaw Bros' film Death Duel and now he's back to direct a new version for producer Tsui Hark, making this both a homage and a reinvention. Here is the story of tattooed-faced assassin Yen Shih-San who considers himself the greatest swordsman in the land. He is looking for the Third Sword Master Hsieh Sao-Feng to challenge his legendary blade and win an opportunity to bed the warrior's betrothed Chiu-Ti.

Interestingly, Yee's film is enjoying high praise from genre fans, but not necessarily for the narrative. Rather - perhaps more than any previous attempt from any country, anywhere - this extravaganza is the most successful merging of cinema with the video game landscape. The eye-popping visuals are instantly breathtaking and wondrous.
