(aka "Dao jian xiao" )

 

directed by Taylor Wong
Hong Kong 1994

 

Starring Andy Lau (God of Gamblers, Days of Being Wild, Internal Affairs and House of Flying Daggers) and Brigette Lin (Bride with White Hair, Chunking Express, Peking Opera Blues), the story basically is a menage-a-trois between three swordsmen who all have a reason to fight, but someone forgot to add a story.

Comments Overall weak image and far below the usual standard from Optimum. The source shows signs of dirt, compression is visible and it has not been progressive scanned, causing combing.

It appears to be cropped from its OAR of 1.85:1, its format on the Universe DVD, but at least its an improvement over the Universe, which has a worse image and burned subtitles.
