Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
Judgement of an Assassin is most noteworthy for expanding the number and kinds of martial arts used in onscreen battles. In the story, Heh Mo-li (David Chiang) is hard-pressed to keep his lady-love Shih Ming-chu (Ching Li) out of the hands of the bad guys. In a related story, Cha Hung and Hua Szu Ku (Ku Feng and Wang Lai) are an elderly unmarried couple. Both of them are swordfighters. Cha doesn't discover why Ku has remained with him despite his failure to marry her until the very end of their lives.
