After swordsman Xian Xiao (Chang I) has saved the life of Judge Bao Zheng from a group of ruthless assassins, he is made bodyguard of the emperor (Chin Feng) and given the honorary title King Cat.

That though is a slap in the face of a group of heroes calling themselves the Five Mice of Xiangkong Island, and especially the youngest, Bai Yolang (Chiao Chiang) is bent on having his revenge. So he steals Princess Yongan's new stove right from under Xian Xiao's nose, just to provoke the hero, and leaves a message behind that would lead Xian Xiao to him ...

Unfortunately though, that very same night, scheming minister Peng has sent his thug Hua (Lo Lieh)  to Princess Yongan's mansion to assassinate her, but since he can't find her herself, he rapes and kills three of her maidens ... with all the evidence pointing to Bai Yolang.

Xian Xiao, who investigates the case, can't help but soon come to the conclusion that the killer really was Bai Yolang, and even Bai Yolang's sister Yue-han believes he is guilty and helps Xian Xiao track down Bai Yolang ... and soon everything culminates in a battle of the emperors army against the Five Mice of Xiangkong Island, foubght all the fiercer since Bai Yolang refuses to admit his deeds ... and he is very right at that, since when it's almost too late, Xian Xiao finds out that the darts with which the maidens were killed do not match Bai Yolang's personal darts.

From here on, Bai Yolang and Xian Xiao decide to join forces to capture the real culprits, and soon enough, their trail leads to Minister Peng and his henchmen Hua - a trail that also leads through Minister Peng's vast underground labyrinth full of deathtraps. Peng and Hua though have meanwhile kidnapped Princess Yolang, which makes the affair all the more urgent. After another big battle though, Minister Peng and Hua are killed, Bai Yolang's reputation is restored, and Xian Xiao is offered Princess Yolang's hand ... he refuses though since he has since fallen in love with Bai Yolang's sister Yue-han.

 

A nice martial arts-mystery that seems to prefigure Chu Yuan's celebrated Ku Lung adaptations by quite some years, and even if King Cat doesn't match those movies in neither style nor martial arts nor bizarre inventiveness, it's nevertheless good entertainment, featuring an interesting storyline, colourful scenery and some quite impressive battle scenes.
