Three Swordsmen (HK 1994)

Rating: *
Cast: Andy Lau, Brigitte Lin, Tsui Kam Long

What crap. Andy Lau, Brigitte Lin (playing a guy), and Tsui Kam Long are competing swordsmen in the world of martial arts. The entire thing is nonsensical, but it eventually turns out that there's a huge conspiracy taking place to ensure that one of the fighters is awarded the best in the world through treachery and betrayal. Often silly and has WAY too much flying around and arm waving, but it looks great and is full of gorgeous sets and beautiful women. It has a good soundtrack with a couple of silly songs and a couple of really nice moody tracks, but the majority of it was lifted straight from "Akira" (1989). Huh?!?
