YesAsia Editorial Description

Legendary Hong Kong filmmaker Tsui Hark finally returns to the big screen with his epic wuxia adventure, Seven Swords. The story is based on the acclaimed novel Seven Swordsmen From Mountain Tian by Liang Yu Sheng, creator of such classic tales as The Bride With White Hair. Set in China in the 1600s, Seven Swords tells the story of a country ravaged by violence. The Manchurians have taken over the sovereignty and established the Qing Dynasty. The people are rising up all over the country in attempts to overpower their new rulers, but with little success. The government has imposed a nationwide ban on the practice of all martial arts, in an attempt to maintain law and order throughout the land.

Evil general Fire Wind (Sun Hong Lei) seeks to profit from this situation by leading a squad of executioners through the country, killing anyone caught practicing martial arts, and collecting a bounty from the government for doing so. He heads directly for Martial Village, a small settlement that so far has managed to hold out against the Manchurians invading force, but has yet to encounter Fire Wind and his army.

Fu Qing Zhu (Lau Ka Leung, who also serves as the film's stunt coordinator) plays a retired executioner from the previous dynasty, who warns the villagers of the impending threat. Together with two young warriors, Wu Yian Yin (Charlie Yeung) and Han Zhi Bang (Lu Yi), Fu journeys to Mount Heaven to seek help from the great master of swords, Master Shadow Glow (Ma Jing Wu). Four of the master's finest disciples, played by Leon Lai, Donnie Yen, Duncan Chow and Tai Li Wu are assigned to help the villagers, aided by awesome weapons forged by Master Shadow Glow. Together they become the Seven Swords and return to the village to confront Fire Wind...

In the early 1660’s the Manchurians took over the sovereignty of China and established the Qing Dynasty. With many pro-nationalist revolts occurring, the newly set-up government immediately imposed a ban on the study and practice of the Martial Arts. Fire-wind, a military official from the previous dynasty, ravages and ranges across North-western China with his next goal to attack the final frontier – the intransigent and hold-out town know as the Martial Village.

Fu Qinghu, a retired executioner from the previous dynasty, feels a moral obligation to try and put a stop to this brutality and decides to save martial Village. He convinces two young people from the village to travel with him to Mount Heaven in order to seek help from Master Shadow Glow, a hermit who is a master of swords and leads a group of disciples with unimaginable swordsmanship. Master Shadow-Glow agrees to help, and orders four of his best disciples to go. Representing heroism at its sword they come to be known as the SEVEN SWORDS and their heroic journey begins.

Professional Review of "Seven Swords (2005) (Blu-ray) (2019 Reprint) (Hong Kong Version)"

April 3, 2006

This professional review refers to Seven Swords (2005) (DVD) (3-Disc Complete Edition) (Hong Kong Version)
In China in the mid-1600s, warriors from Manchuria have taken control of the royal palaces and have established the Qing Dynasty. Realizing that rebellions by nationalists opposed to the new order will need to be guarded against, the government issues an order that all practitioners of martial arts must surrender their weapons to their nearest official. Failure to comply with the government's edict will, all notices read, be considered a crime most serious and will be punishable by beheading.

However, rather than ordering the army to carry out these orders, the government solicits the use of mercenaries, offering a bounty for the head of each rebel but such are the riches promised that the innocent are murdered as ruthlessly as the rebels. Mercenaries, regardless of their allegiances prior to the Qing Dynasty, see this edict as a means to become amongst the wealthiest of men. As they cross the land, whole towns fall before their swords with neither women nor children spared. And yet, when the situation becomes most bleak, word comes of a single warrior carrying out attacks on the army of General Fire Wind (Sun Hong Lei). As news spreads, Fire Wind grows increasingly concerned at these attacks, believing them the first sign of a popular uprising against his men, which will continue to grow if not swiftly dealt with.

After one such attack, this man, Fu Qingzhu (Lau Kar Leung), is ambushed by Fire Wind's men and injured. He is followed out of the village and is thought to be hiding in Bowei Fortress, home to the Heaven and Earth Society, which, due to its history of martial arts being used in defense against bandits, is where Fire Wind is preparing to send his army next. On arriving at Bowei Fortress, badly injured and barely able to speak, Fu warns of Fire Wind's approach but, remembering him as a state executioner, they ignore his warnings in favor of throwing him into a makeshift prison, from where he will be tried and sentenced to death for past crimes. But with the help of Fang, the daughter of the governor of the fortress, Fu escapes with Han Zhibang (Lu Yi) and Wu Yuanying (Charlie Young), leading them to Mount Heaven, where they seek help from Master Shadow-Glow, a legendary swordsmith.

Shadow-Glow listens carefully to the words of Fu Qingzhu and offers him assistance - four swordsmen and three weapons. Accepting the swords of a master craftsman, Fu, Han and Wu lead Xin Longzi (Tai Li Wu), Yang Yuncong (Leon Lai), Mu Lang (Duncan Chow) and Chu Zhaonan (Donnie Yen) down from the mountain to Bowei Fortress, where three-hundred of Fire Wind's men awaits them. Slaughtering them, the Seven Swords move on Fire Wind's castle but a surprise awaits them as two old friends meet and realize that a simple fight to the death will not settle the mistrust between them...

It may be that I am something of a novice with Asian cinema but Seven Swords comes as something of a mixed bag of styles. In a very simple sense, it is an epic mix of martial arts and swordplay - a kind of Seven Samurai/The Magnificent Seven but with a great deal more blood and onscreen severing of limbs. But it is also interrupted by flights of imagination wherein straightforward scenes are given a delicately studied air. In one respect, this gives Seven Swords a beauty that will be familiar to anyone impressed by Hero or House of Flying Daggers. It gives Seven Swords an occasionally muddled feel about it, with events occurring off-screen and, as an audience, one learning about it through a recollection that may or may not be a trusted one. There is a certain dreaminess to the film that, though visually appealing, leaves one unsure of the truth in events. Add to this much back-story and Seven Swords concludes as a treat for the eyes but not for one's love of storytelling.

But the battles, which are sure to be the main attraction for some of the audience for this film, are wonderful, if not as poised as Hero. Instead, Seven Swords is closer to the horrors of Seven Samurai, doing away with the thunderous rainstorms and replacing them with a cold wind that blows into the eyes of the warriors, leaving dirty, dusty towns soaking with the bright red blood of fallen rebels. The opening battle is a perfect example of the style of the film with Fire Wind's troops laying waste to an entire village, their gray complexions and black armor standing out against the brief glimpses of blood on the ground. Director Tsui Hark maintains this look throughout the film, occasionally placing the action in a different location but never forgetting that a beautiful backdrop makes the frenzy of a battle all the more memorable.

However, being adapted from a novel by Liang Yu Shen, it does feel as though much was lost between page and screen. The problem with an ensemble film such as this one - and it happened in The Magnificent Seven as much as it does here - is that characters tend to get lost. The seven swordsmen here do not get an equal amount of screen time and Seven Swords tends towards the stories of Dragon Sword (Chu, Donnie Yen), Unlearned Sword (Fu, Lau Kar Leung), Deity Sword (Han, Lu Yi) and Heaven's Fall Sword (Wu, Charlie Young). So it may be that they are the most interesting characters in the film - though in denial of their feelings both Deity and Heaven's Fall Swords are drawn towards one another. There is a subplot regarding Dragon Sword's rescuing and love for Green Pearl (Kim So Yuen), a Korean woman enslaved by Fire Wind - but Transience, Celestial Beam and Star Chaser Swords do tend to get lost in the action. Add to that a long-winded journey through the mountains, a siege and the uncovering of a traitor, as well as one worrying how keenly one should follow the many characters who wander into the story, and Seven Swords is often a meandering epic, one that could well have done with having its story made more succinct.

For the battles alone, though, this is often a great film, not only looking extraordinarily beautiful but thrilling and often hugely exciting. Whilst some of the wire work is very obvious, the sword fights and martial arts work are of a very high standard as is the score and, mostly, the direction. More's the pity, then, that the story rambles as it does. Had Seven Swords been that bit more direct, it would have been a better film and so much more powerful. And yet, even during its frequent diversions, Seven Swords looks terrific and maybe for that, one's prepared to forgive it a great deal.

Tsui Hark makes a stinker! Customer Review Rated Bad 4 - 4 out of 10
"Seven Swords" is a pretentious flop. Seldom has so much money been wasted on such a puny artistic vision. The script gives the actors little to do but pose; the viewer can't possibly care about such thinly drawn characters. The cinematography is overly arty, making a confusing hash out of the film's battle scenes. The music is a hackneyed distraction. And the heavy metal costuming of the bad guys is a comical cliche. This is truly atrocious film-making.

Borderline stodgy Customer Review Rated Bad 4 - 4 out of 10
Tsui Hark's style has reverted to wanting to cram "as much material into the shortest time period possible" & that's not fair to those individuals who would actually like to understand what they are viewing. There are some nice shots whether it is a moment of character or plot development but those are quickly minimized by the super-sonic speed of the entire story. After a while you stop trying to comprehend & go into a pseudo-comatose state. Not that it's much of an improvement but the TV mini-series with Vincent Zhao provides slightly more insight in that the story & plodding pace is understandable.

Not bad Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
I liked this movie. However, there are lots of obvious flaws.
Firstly, there's not enough character development. You barely get to know the main characters since there are so many of them. Apart from Donnie, Leon and Charlie; the rest barely get any on screen time.
Secondly, it's obvious that the movie has been edited where one scene suddenly skips to another.
Overall, good fight scenes but the story kinda drags a little. Wonder if there's an uncut edition.

Could have been better Customer Review Rated Bad 5 - 5 out of 10
The movie is not bad just badly edited. Basically, Hark edited the movie to 2 and half hours from 4 hours. You will notice that some plot points are missing and makes you ask alot of questions. Its a long movie, but it moves really quick. These are really good characters, but they are all under-developed. Donnie Yen, the korean girl and some of the villains did a good job but the other actors will make you wonder why were they in the movie. Charlie Yeung character did not do anything relevant to the end of the movie. It could have been way better than this. I suggest the tv series. Its longer, somewhat better action and you get the whole plot and character development. The big bonus about the tv series is that you understand why certain people got the sword and Yunyan (spelled it wrong) is better as a dude.
