Overview
Legendary Hong Kong Director Tsui Hark blends violent action and stunning swordplay in his remake of the Shaw Brothers classic "One-Armed Swordsman".

"The Blade" is a swepping epic which highlights the incredible fighting talent of Chiu Cheik, Hong Kongs latest action star. When a master sword-maker adopts the son of a murdered friend, the boy learns the master's craft well. As a young man he learns about his fathers death at the hand of a mysterious tattooed killer. He takes his fathers broken blade and sets out to seek vengeance. The daughter, Ling, follows but is caught in a bloody ambush. When he tries to rescue her, his arm is hacked off in the battle and he is believed dead by all expect Ling and his friend who set out in search of him.

But he is saved by a hermit girl who nurses him back to health where he finds an old kung fu manual and practices with the broken blade to perfect the art of one armed swordfighting.
