(aka "Huo yun chuan qi" or "Fiery Romance" or "The Fiery Dragon Kid")

 

directed by Woo-ping Yuen
Hong Kong 1994

 

When Red Dragon is send out to retrieve a letter incriminating her master, as he plots to overthrow the emperor, she meets swordsman Yuen, who got to the letter before her. Red Dragon eventually falls in love with Yuen and turns on her master.

Directed by Yuen Woo-ping, without parallel the best fight choreograph ever, who after making Jet Li famous went to the US and became choreograph on films like "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon", "Matrix" and "Kill Bill", "Fire Dragon" is simple one great flick, full of silly humour, amazing fights and incredible pyrotechnical effects.
