Cheh Chang Hong Kong, 1969

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.
