At sword's point
The hero of this story (Yueh Hua) is trying to stop a message on 12 gold medallion's to be delivered by traitors, because he is loyal to the emperor. However, his girlfriend's father became leader of the enemies which is causing a lot of personal trouble in between battles.

Directed by Cheng Kang, who is mostly known in the west for "The 14 Amazons" (aka "Die Rache der gelben Tiger"), this is a fluently narrated movie that does not extend the fight scenes for too long each, but knows how to make them exciting, something special and to the point. A good example is right at the beginning, sword vs whip, also later when the old masters meet and one of them uses only a bamboo stick. Despite some comic relief, quite a lot of killing going on. Good quality work which was fortunately rediscovered for a great quality DVD release in the 2000s.
