Obvious wire-fu, but otherwise pretty good
Basic premise: girl's mother dies, so she goes on a trek to find, um, somebody. The plot could be a bit more concise, but basically it's about a long-delayed revenge. However, the plot is not the good part. There are some pretty impressive fights, like the sword fight on top of the waterfall, and some not-so-impressive fights featuring crappy wire-fu stunts. But that's not the good part either. Instead, this film seems to feature a couple different things that later cropped up in much bigger movies: Some stop-action fight effects of the sort which later became the hallmark of "The Matrix", and quite a bit of scenery and fighting which reminded me of parts of "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon". Slow movie to start, but after about 30 minutes it really gets moving and is well worth watching.
