David Carradine plays four roles in this epic adventure, including a blind sage who helps Cord the Seeker, a young martial artist who is looking for the all-knowing Zetan so he can get his hands on the priceless Book of Knowledge.

This is a nice little fantasy martial arts film. Even though Bruce Lee was originally intended for this film, I feel like David Carradine fills his shoes quite well as he plays multiple parts in this gem.
Action movie that feel more Asian than American due to it's zen-style dialogue. Surprising ending that don't end in American style by killing every bad guy, but instead has a message delivered through the film's best two actors, Christopher Lee and David Carradine. The absurd chance to see Eli Wallach bathing in oil is a added bonus. Jeff Cooper lack charisma in the leading role though and the editing is mediocre.
