The Reviews for The One-Armed Swordsman (1967) 720p


A film that is missing an arm, but still funReviewed byasandorVote: 6/10

The One-Armed Swordsmen, directed by Cheh Chang, and starring Jimmy Wang-Yu and Chiao Chiao, follows are hero Fang Kang, a loyal and humble student of a martial arts school, who accidentally loses an arm to bullies and flees the school. Fang is taken in by a lonely farmer - Hsiao Man, who nurses him back to health. The two begin to rely on each other, and fall in love, with Fang vowing to give up martial arts and become a humble farmer. However, and opportunist martial arts school targets Fang's old comrades, using a hook-blade to counter their two swords, killing off more and more of the schools adherents. Fang begins to react when his old comrade, and one of his previous bullies, is kidnapped, and steps in to save his old friends even though they wronged him.

This film is rather fun, with some lovely cinematography, especially the scene where Fang loses his arm - with some brilliant snowy scenery and lighting. The One-Armed Swordsman training and gaining strength, and eventually facing off against the hook-blade, is a wonderful bit of martial arts action. This is a pretty good film in terms of martial arts classics, and is the first in an enjoyable trilogy of films following Fang and his eventual successor.

This film has its downsides, however. Compared to its sequels, it is much less enjoyable and much more conventional. The school on school martial arts film by Cheh Chang and others has been done before - hundreds of times. This film does not elevate itself above the pack, except for the quality of its sequels. It is not a bad film at all, but the action, camp, martial arts, and such are muted in comparison to others. The acting is fine, but not overly memorable. The action is fine, but again, not overly memorable. Again, this film, in my opinion, is fun because of the quality of its sequels and how it sets up Fang's character for the second film. The muted and average aspects of this film do not make it poor, but certainly do not elevate it above the pack. A fine film in many ways, but its sequels are much better.

A Nutshell Review: (DVD) One-Armed Swordsman (1967)Reviewed byDICK STEELVote: 8/10

There are tonnes of wuxia stories and films out there, it's quite difficult to be established as one of the classics. One-Armed Swordsman happens to be one of the best remembered and loved stories that defined wuxia, and it is no doubt that actor Wang Yu and director Chang Cheh were made household names.

Common themes in wuxia like brotherhood, romance, piety, revenge are all rolled into One-Armed Swordsman. A son of a servant who died valiantly protecting his master, Qi Rufeng of the Golden Sword Clan, Fang Gang (Want Yu) was brought up by Qi Rufeng as one of his disciples, but his daughter Qi Pei-er accidentally chops off Fang Gang's right arm in a fit of petty anger.

Running away and injured, Fang Gang was saved by a village girl Hsiao Man, who nurses him back to health, and passes to him half a sacred kung fu manual, which has only the left-handed moves left (yes, it's that convenient). Swearing to leave the martial arts world and minding his own business, little does he realize that a rival clan has developed weapons and moves to counter the Golden Sword Clan, and are out for blood.

Realizing that he cannot let down the master who has brought him up, Fang Gang goes to their rescue, against the wishes of Hsiao Man. Caught between two benefactors, Fang Gang has to make the decision, one in which only a true swordsman will definitely make.

The martial arts, compared to today's standards might seem cheesy, but it's the good old days sans wire work. The teahouse fight remains one of the better sequences, and they all get as bloody as they can get, hence Chang Cheh was also known as the "ketchup" director. You'll marvel at how smart editing actually allows for some "slick" martial arts moves to be performed.

Characters are kept simple - the good are good, and the bad are really evil, and look the part too. It's a one dimensional world, but that keeps the storyline simple as you await the action to begin.

So for that introductory look into the world of Wuxia, One-Armed Swordsman might just be the vehicle for you - characters, themes, weapons, the hallmark elements of a good wuxia film are all there.

This Code 3 DVD contains a behind the scenes gallery, the trailers, production notes and biographies, and a segment on 5 animated works done by various educational institutions in Asia. The winning segment comes from Singapore, and it indeed is a beauty to watch.

great early kung fu classicReviewed bySnoopyStyleVote: 8/10

Fang Kang's father sacrificed himself to save his master Qi RuFeng during an underhanded attack. Master Qi is famous for his Golden Sword Kung Fu and takes Fang Kang as his student. Fang Kang's prized possession is his father's broken Golden Sword. Years later, Qi's only child spoiled daughter Peier and other students hate the humble Fang Kang and look down on him as a servant's son. Fang Kang sets out to walk away from an impending confrontation but Peier insists on fighting. She underhandedly chops off Fang Kang's right arm. He walks off and rescued by XiaoMan. She's an orphan turned pacifist farmer after her swordsman father was killed. She kept a burned swordsmanship book and with his father's broken sword, Fang Kang recovers to be an one-armed swordsman. Master Qi is calling in his disciples to take over as the new master. Old rivals Smiling Tiger and his older brother Long-armed Devil are out to kill them. Long-armed Devil has studied Master Qi's standard Golden Sword and has created a Swordlock to beat it.

This is a great early Hong Kong kung fu classic. The story is filled with duty, sacrifice and the underdog. It's pure melodramatic gold and the action is modern. There's no wire work yet but the modern action is well on its way. The acting is solid. It's a blend of natural and the older melodramatic acting styles. This is a mix of great story, iconic characters and fun action.
