  1. msmichel's rating of the film Return of the One Armed Swordsman

    Essential wuxia. Cheh Chang's sequel to his own 'One Armed Swordsman' raises the ante eight fold with this superior endeavour. Without the need of backstory or training montage this film simply concentrates on the bloodletting and superior action choreography to tell its tale. Pretty blood thirsty for its time period the film makes no concessions for its bloodlust and murky portrayal of villain and so-called hero.

  2. Christopher M. Jones's rating of the film Return of the One Armed Swordsman

    This has gotta be the "High Noon" of the wuxia genre, with a billion percent more gore. Thrilling, brutal and poignant in the way only the best action cinema can be.

  3. Hunter Duesing's rating of the film Return of the One Armed Swordsman

    A superior sequel that sports crazy wall-to-wall action while touching on the classic themes that Chang Cheh explored so well.
