Bastard Swordsman

Rating: 8/10

Dueling clans seek to attain the highest level of kung-fu: silkworm style. The fighter literally shoots out webs of silk and creates a battle cocoon, but you don’t get to see this until the climax. The rest of the fights aren’t quite as crazy but they are overwhelmingly magical (as opposed to the grounded technique of a Gordon Liu). The flying, spinning wire-fu is the main appeal here but leaves the story and characters to be forgotten. They even drop the whole dueling clans plot-line for the last act of the picture.
