    Kao (Wei Pei), the duplicitous pivotal character, has purchased a beautiful wife for 1,000 taels of gold; alas, his rival, the prodigious fighter Pei, has paid her 2,000 taels to kill him. When loyalty can be purchased, it no longer exists...

    With outstanding action choreography and notions of betrayed loyalty, this early Wu Xia (martial chivalry) period piece was written and directed by John Woo, becoming an essential point in the young artist`s career and went on to directly influence most of 1980s Hong Kong action cinema.
