    Default Sword Master 2016

    I can't recommend this film enough.

    Compared to all the modern wuxia films (with their concentration on pretty faces and gimmicks), this to me captures the Gu Long essence very well and the fight choreography is one of the best ever for wire-fu.

    click to show/hide spoilers
    Pity they didn't follow the main plot and there is not sword 14/15 subplot. At least Xie tried to even the favor after Y13 taught him all his moves by returning the favour before the final duel.


    Go watch it if you havn't already.

    The film is quite easy to get on Amazon here in the UK.
    OT this is a remake of the shaw brothers film Death Duel, which was an adaptation of Gu Long's story.

    Yes, the start of the credits even stated that.

    Luckily however, they did not include that overused trope from the original Death Duel with the script-writer created ultimate baddie with ultimate kung fu. I found that plot device (reverse 9 yin giving super powers in a GL story) revolting.

    Yes he is. Also can someone confirm if he is the same 3rd master in Full Moon Scimitar?

    Agree, it would have been better if the Murong family just sent a horde of lackeys to attack them while they were fighting. Still Shaw Brothers adaptations were always a bit odd.

    Mentioned in both book and movie, until 3rd master came along, no one managed to master the family sword skills to that level.

    He loved/at least had feelings for the woman, but could not stand the pressure of being from a prominent family.
