                    Lung Wei Village

 Starring: Lo Lieh , Polly Shang Kuan , Yueh Hua

1978

 

 

Film title - Lung Wei Village, Killer Hillz, 99 Cycling swords, Des Karatekampfer Aus Granit

(here are a few titles that this film is known as, but commonly known as '99 cycling swords')

 Plot ( now this is the tricky but, but will try )

Anticipating a rebellion in the small village of Lung Wei, the Manchu Warlords order the local magistrate to find the rebels. The magistrate hires four warriors to carry out the this task.

Review - The film starts out like the old classic Kung Fu films I remember from my youth, the laugh out loud terrible dubbing, the over the top fighting with lots of jumping around and flying in the air. So bad it was good.

But then it all gets very confusing. There is a mysterious bloke, all dressed in white going around fighting everyone. Anyone who wears white and is a bit handy is suspected. Four such white clad warriors each suspecting the other as being the bad white clad figure have a bit of a fight, but then join forces to find the real bad white clad figure. Confused? I was. It then gets a bit more confusing, one of these White clad warriors is clearly female, two very visible obvious reasons. But, and here is the clever bit she disguises herself as a man by wearing a hat, in fact two hats (the fur one is my favourite).

And here is the spoiler and why one of the titles of the film is 99 cycling swords. She/he produces a sword, you will never guess from where. She/he says earlier in the film the sword is not that impressive, making us think it is going to be, but guess what it isn't. There isnt even 99 of them. And to be honest I could of used it and saved the day. Silly ending to the film. Maybe something lost in translation.

The film has little moments of promise, but the plot is too slow and confusing. I like these type of old films and wanted to like it, but didn't.
