Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
Three top martial arts instructors star in this kung-fu action film set during a period when China was divided up among local warlords. The three heroes, Wang Xui (Philip Chun-fung Kwok, aka Kuo Chui), Yu Hansheng (Chiang Sheng), and Jin Zhengbing (Lo Meng) make a blood pact early on to help each other in their battles against despots. They leave their southern homes for northern China, and their ultimate objective is to eliminate a particularly evil general. There is plenty of spectacular martial arts action using everything from "empty hands" (kung-fu) to hands wielding swords, benches, clubs, chains, spears, and just about anything necessary to win a fight.
