This Shaw Brothers classic, masterfully directed by Hua Shan (The 14 Amazons), is a
harrowing lesson in achieving the coveted Number One sword-wielding status.
Ti Lung (Opium and the Kung- Fu Master, A Better Tomorrow) is the Nameless
Swordsman bent on defeating the faceless King of Swords to claim the title, and the
glory, for himself.

Hordes of fighters lunge from the shadows to cut down the mysterious challenger.
Even a cunning seductress takes a stab at him in a revealing bath house assassination.
It is said that a man’s weapon reflects his utmost dreams, desires and fears. A warrior
with no name and one motive has a soul as merciless as cold steel.

My Thoughts

This is a swordplay film about a guy that go’s by nameless(Ti Lung) that vows to become
the #1 swordsman since he was a boy after viewing the battle for the #1 swords man.
Since then nothing else matters, all he wanted was that title and to see the face of the #1
swordsman who keeps his face hidden.
The film has no good guys as I view it they are all bad, even Ti Lungs character.
Soul of The Sword has a good amount of action and some nudity.

The Quality of the film is pretty good for standard DVD almost looked like it was Blu-Ray.
The Dubbing of this film is a new dub and it is word for word with the  subtitles,
and I am not liking the dubbing actors too much.

Overall I like this movie, It was different as in their were no good guys and the ending is
classic Shaw Brothers. It has a simple plot but still entertaining. I give this film a rating of

4 out of 5

About Masked Avenger

CEO/Webmaster of The Name Is James and I love Film ranging from Silent 20's to highly CGI Blockbusters of today. Westerns, Horror, world film, basically anything that peaks my interest I own it But Asian Films are what I Prize the most and Half of My collection Consists of Asian Films. Thanks to the Film 5 Deadly Venoms

I Hail From The US, Maryland Is where The Ninja Studies and views the Scrolls of Film That Shine on his 46" Screen. I own a sword, I can do a thousand upside down situps, and I randomly disappear in smoke when I'm not writing movie news and or reviews.
