When he learns that his father was murdered, knife maker Dig on (Zhao Wen Zhou) wants his revenge. But he loses his arm during the first fight with rutheless thugs.
After the Swordsman series, Tsui Hark is back in the Wu Xia Pian with this remake of One- Armed Swordman (Chang Cheh). The result is beyond all dreams. The director explores once again a new estheticism, based on fury and noise. Violence and bloodshed are the ingredients of a chaotic world where the spectator can't do nothing except be astonished. A new masterpiece.
