Perhaps a remake of "Rebellious Reign" 1980
Just to add something - the other reviewer points out a plot twist regarding altering a character on a written will as being similar to another kung fu movie of the time. Please also compare this film to "Rebellious Reign" from 1980 and you will find other plot similarities. There are so many in fact that I have to consider this film as a remake of the earlier. The really weird part is actor Norman Chu plays in both movies. In the earlier movie he is the 14th prince. In this movie he is the bodyguard of the 4th prince. Actually, I like him better as the good guy despite his many roles as bad guys. Review-wise, this is an excellent kung fu movie, a good example of Shaw Studios going out on top.
