"The Supreme Swordsman" a.k.a. Zhi zhuan yi jian, 老鷹的劍 (1984)
The Supreme Swordsman, also known as Zhi zhuan yi jian, 老鷹的劍. (1984)
(Synopsis): The entire Shaw's script-writing section created this quintessential swordplay epic of the "Martial Arts World." It was entrusted it to neophyte director Li Pai-ling, who used no fewer than three cinematographers and four martial arts directors (not to mention a separate action director) to realize their vision. As befitting the title, the cast, too, is supreme, bringing to life the thrilling story of a malicious swordsman lying, cheating and stealing to get to the top, and the noble man who finally defeats him
Overview: A rampaging swordsman slices and dices his way across China on a bloody mission to cut down every warrior in his way, and claim the blade of the legendary Supreme Swordsman in this Shaw Brothers classic starring Derek Yee and Jason Pai Piao, and directed by Keith Li Baak Ling. But when the son of a slain sword maker emerges as an unexpected challenger, the ruthless killer realizes that he may have finally met his match.
