About the Movie
In this beautifully shot wuxia epic, a powerful swordsman is haunted by the destructive impact his deadly talents have on others. Weary of the bloodshed and violence from the martial arts world, he banishes himself to the humble life a vagrant, wandering the fringes of society. But his violent past refuses to let him go quietly. The master swordsman must regain the ability to wield his sword and fight those disrupting the peace he so desperately craves. Director Derek Yee joins forces with producer Tsui Hark to bring this classic story of a master swordsman to life. With a mixture of complex emotions and unconventional characters, Tsui and Yee believe their collaboration has created a Sword Master that will both entertain and intrigue.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: This nostalgic nod to the Chinese magic-and-martial arts genre known as wuxia mixes love story and clan war with equal amounts of silliness and heart.
Rotten: For the most part this is a clunky hodgepodge of old-fashioned warrior tropes, awkward humor, five-alarm melodrama and CGI-dependent 21st century action filmmaking ...
Fresh: The emphasis is on deep-focus 3-D spectacle, not psychology.
Fresh: It's a great big, colourful, campy extravaganza in which often fake-looking CGI backgrounds don't detract from the enjoyment.
It was ok till the last scene which ruined whole movie.
