YesAsia Editorial Description

The chivalry and brotherhood of the classic Shaw Brothers martial arts films is proudly on display in The Trail of the Broken Blade, a gripping action epic with a touch of tragic romance. Classic kung-fu star Jimmy Wang Yu is Li Yueh, a righteous swordsman sent into hiding after he kills an official for the unjust execution of his father. Li Yuen is sought out by Jun Zhao (Chiu Kou), a noble swordsman who seeks out Li on behalf of Liu Xuan (Chin Ping), his swordplay student and also the woman he loves. However, when evil attackers from Flying Fish island pursue Jun Zhao, the love triangle is put aside in favor of righteous bonds of brotherhood. Li Yueh returns to the World of Martial Arts to help his friend in a climactic confrontation that piles on the blood and bodies like you wouldn't believe. Predating Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon by more than a few decades, The Trail of the Broken Blade is a standout romantic action epic which compares favorably to Ang Lee's modern masterpiece.

Complete with dramatic song Customer Review Rated Bad 7 - 7 out of 10
This is a classic swordplay of romance & honor. The opening sets up Jimmy Wang Yu's character nicely & the rest is for the heroic story to unfold. You know how it's going to end but it's style allows you to keep watching. The end becomes drawn out for my taste but all ends in that romantic, old school sense.

Swashbuckling romantic epic Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
After a rocky opening, Chang Cheh's "The Trail of the Broken Blade" becomes an engrossing swordplay romance. The film touches on Chang's trademark themes of chivalry, honor, and brotherhood, and adds believable romances to fill out the story. The storyline unfolds at a very deliberate pace, but never becomes tedious or boring. Much credit should go to all of the actors, both leads and supporting cast, for bringing this film to life. Highly recommended for a general audience.

The trail of the broken blade Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
A swordfighting movie with triangular love romance
and tragic ending.
Despite the 60's action,
it is still worthy to see the young Jimmy Wang Yu appearance.
Await for his popular " One Armed Swordman ".
