Dark and moody with lazy fight choreography
It starts with a sword challenge ending in a draw and raising the question of saguaro cacti existing in Taiwan. "Meet you this time of next year". Cut to David Chiang and another guy talk, then fight, and David leaves with the same words. He rides off and meets Angie Chiu Nga-Chi. She has some strange dreams. David rides off and meets some weird fighters but it is a trap by Angie. David killed her husband so she captures him for torture.
The fights are just close ups and people doing somersaults and swords flying around. A good effort was shown in the final seven minutes of fighting but too little too late. The unfortunate copy is VHS 4:3 with duel hard subtitles that are chopped off on both sides. The English seems about 50% accurate.
Chiang Cheng plays an androgynous character, very weird, but he seemed to be enjoying the bit.
I won't write a review unless I watched the entire movie. This movie I will never watch again and I cannot recommend it.
