YesAsia Editorial Description

From the venerable Shaw Brothers studio comes One-Armed Swordsman, the 1967 wuxia film that changed the face of Hong Kong cinema forever! Directed by legendary filmmaker Chang Cheh with action choreography by Lau Ka Leung and Tong Gai, this internationally successful film launched the career of Jimmy Wang Yu, who portrays the iconic title character. When the Golden Sword School finds itself under siege, it is up to a faithful disciple (Guk Fung) to put his life on the line to protect both his master and his fellow students. Tragically, the brave hero is killed in the process, but before he dies, he passes on his precious Broken Sword and convinces Master Qi Rufeng (Ting Fung) to accept his son Fang Gang as his own. The film then flashes forward to follow the adventures of a now grown-up Fang (Jimmy Wang Yu), who has become the top student at the martial arts school. Even so, he is hated by his jealous classmates. One snowy evening, a dejected Fang meets up with a group of students led by the master's spoiled daughter (Pan Yin Tze). When Fang refuses to fight her, the daughter becomes enraged and chops off his arm!

Miraculously, Fang escapes with his life and crosses paths with a pretty country girl named Hsiao Man (Chiao Chiao). She plays nursemaid to the fallen hero and eventually shares her father's half-burned kung fu manual with him as well. With renewed determination, Fang Gang adapts to his handicap, becoming a formidable warrior in his own right. But his newfound mastery of martial arts is challenged when he discovers that the Golden Sword School is once again under attack by the same villains who murdered Fang Gang's father! Will he return to the school to defend it as his father did before him? Or will he retire from the world of martial arts as he promised Hsiao Man? Watch and learn in this classic Shaw Brothers film, which spawned two official sequels, several similar spin-offs, the international team-up picture, Zatoichi Meets the One-Armed Swordsman, and the unofficial sequel One-Armed Swordsmen!

A Shaw Brothers Classic Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
One of Jimmy Wang Yu's greatest roles as the introspective, maimed swordsman who learns to overcome his disability and discovers there's more to life than martial arts.

Sure, the action doesn't compare to today's martial arts choreography and wire-fu, but it was cutting edge for its time. A classic martial arts film.
