YesAsia Editorial Description

The classic stories of Chinese author Gu Long come alive in Death Duel, a powerful Shaw Brother's swordplay epic starring some of the period's biggest stars! Derek Yee is Third Master, a renowned swordsman whose position in the martial arts world is lofty, and a constant frustration for the weary Third Master. The constant challenges and myriad enemies he faces compels him to fake his death and pursue a quiet life with the beautiful Candice Yu. However, his peace can only last so long. Many past enemies arrive seeking revenge, culminating in a bloody showdown, and an appearance by Shaw Brothers kung fu veteran (and Derek Yee's real-life brother) David Chiang!

Also starring Ti Lung and Law Lit, Death Duel is another foray into the complex kung-fu novels of Gu Long, which derive their action and drama from the concept of Jiang Hu. Warriors jockey for personal satisfaction and reputation, and clans compete for the ultimate glory of being known as the world's acknowledged best. Director Chor Yuen brings Gu Long's beloved world to life with exciting action sequences and the gorgeous sets and costumes which were a Shaw Brothers trademark.

This edition comes with trailer, photo gallery and interview with director.

Contrary to most martial arts movies, in which heroes fight to rule the martial world, director Chu Yuan portrays a swordsman tired of fighting, longing for a quiet life in DEATH DUEL. Based on Gu Long’s novel, the Third Master (Derek Yee) aka “God of Sword” has lost his interest in the martial world. In order to avoid the duels challenged by Yan Shi-san (Ling Yun) aka “Spirit of Sword” and other admirers, he fakes his death and adopts a pseudo-name, Ah Ji. He works as caretaker in brothel to make ends meet. Later, in order to save his love, Xiao Li (Yu An-an), his real identity is exposed and the revelation stuns the martial world….

A MUST for WUXIA FANS Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
The action is only mediocre when you go by today’s standards. However, this film is still far superior to most wuxia films before and after it because of the storyline, acting, cinematography, and pacing. No film out there (maybe with the exception of the Swordsman I & II) better depicts the motivations and trial and tribulations of the characters in the imaginary world known as wulin (wuxia society). For the purposes of not spoiling anything, this film basically shows WHAT IS WULIN and WHY IT EXISTS. It stays focused on the characters and their motivations and wastes little time on the unnecessary love triangles and “quests to learn the ultimate martial arts” that hinder the pacing and storylines of so many wuxia novels and adaptations. The cinematography was very successful in conveying the very dark world these characters live in. The actors brought life and intrigue to their characters. Bonus: for those who love these films for the pretty damsels in distress, Candice Yu On-On certainly doesn’t disappoint. Very hard not to fall in love with her after this film.

This film is a must for anyone who wants to understand or is a fan of the Wuxia Genre.

Death Duel Customer Review Rated Bad 5 - 5 out of 10
Unlike other Ku Lung's based movies, this movie has far too simple plot. It is about a swordman,tired of fame and has tried to keep low profile but is forced to fight back. The intent to watch this movie probably is because of Erh Tong Sheng ( afterall this is his very first lead movie ).
