Revenge many years later
Fang is a famous fighter because he handles the whip so well. He had to hide many years because he was falsely accused of robbery of jewels and murder of a whole family, while he actually just rescued the young daughter from the attackers. Many years later, he has raised the girl anonymously in his hiding-place like she was his daughter and trained her in the art of fighting with a whip, so then they can finally start searching for the real murderer together. Solid action movie by Lo Wei with interesting fight scenes - whips against swords! Cheng Pei-Pei has a great role as Yang, the courageous female fighter... who looks cute with a white fur cap in this winter scenery. The serious revenge story leaves little room for comedy, the only character who could serve as a funny sidekick gets killed early.
