As general Lu is suspected of being a traitor by holding troops back to defend the country's border, the Sun-Moon Clan is brought in to investigate ... & they soon find definite clues that the general is indeed the culprit. But when the Sun Moon clan's chief Zhong & his deputy Ge Jifend want to confront Lu witht he information they have to make him dispatch the troops, general Lu has already set a trap for them, & he kills master Zhong & takes Ge Jifeng prisoner.

It's pure luck that at this time, the hero Shen (Chang I), who has spent the last years as a hermit, has decided to dedicate himself to worldly matters again, drops by the Sun Moon clan & learns that he has been chosen master Zhong's successor.

Soon he & Ge Jifeng's daughter, fighting girl Daiyun go to pay general Lu a not so friendly visit, & on the way, they help nomad Mumaiti & his daughter Sisi against some of Lu's men, who have stolen Mumaiti's seal ...

Finally having arrived at an inn, where Lu & his men stay for a hunting trip, Daiyun uses her seductive powers to lure Lu away from his guards, then she & Shen take him prisoner ... to exchange him for Ge Jifeng ... who dies shortly after the hostage exchange though, but not without telling where a letter, the ultimate proof for Lu's betrayal is hidden.

When Shen goes to fetch the letter, he stumbles over Mumaiti & his nomads, who is so grateful that Shen has helped him, that he sends both his daughters, fighting girl Sisi & seductress Mengmeng with him to fetch the letter ... & qzuite naturally they both fall in love with Shen & almost jeopardize his mission - eventually this all leads to Sisi becoming a nun & Mengmeng becoming Lu's captive ... but she uses all her seductive powers to better her position ... Shen gets the letter though.

With the etter in hand, Shen tries to bargain with Lu, to find him surprisingly willing to accept Shen's conditions, blaming the holding back of the troops on his sub-chief Yan. To bury their hatchet, Lu invites the whole Sun-Moon clan to a feast (a trap, naturally), & the Sun Moon clan, though suspicious, accepts.

In the end though, the Sun Moon Clan is saved by Mengmeng, who has since - to save herowbn live - become Lu's concubine & who now saes Shen's life when preventing him from drinking poisoned wine ... at the cost of her own life though ...

In the end though, the Sun Moon clan can defeat general Lu's troops, Shen himself kills Lu - for the country ! - & at long last, the troops to defend the country's borders are dispatched.


Nice & colourful historical drama/swordsplay movie, that alternates quite freely between action - sometimes rather burtal - & pure kitsch - there are een a few musical numbers in this one -, cheesy comedy & drama. & while the action is still a far cry from the beautivful fighting ballets that have become Shaw Brothers standard only a few years later, this film is still an entertaining & enjoyable, if not very significant, piece of Easern cinema.
