Swordsman - Remastered DTS Edition
IVL have announced the Hong Kong Region 3 DVD release of Swordsman for 12th August 2004. The Swordsman, based on the classic novel by legendary martial arts writer Jin Yong is one of the greatest martial arts stories ever told focused around the classic tale of Good versus Evil, struggle for power and how a hero remains honest in a corrupt world. Ling Wu-Chung (Sam Hui) might only be concerned with boozing and singing, but when the Sacred Scroll, a manual which promises great martial arts power and supremacy over the other clans is stolen, Ling is reluctantly drawn into the struggle for the Scroll. Secrets are revealed, loyalty is betrayed, new alliances are made, and Ling begins to realise that when power beings to corrupt, what is good and evil is not so clear anymore.
