Last Hurrah for Chivalry
This 1978 martial arts film by director John Woo was wrapped nearly 20 years before 1997's Face/Off would bring him mainstream acceptance in Hollywood. His star was rising already in this routine story enhanced by his characteristic signature: dazzling fight sequences, flawed heroes, and well-placed comedy that releases tension. The narrative itself is a tale of a son (Damian Lau) who sets out to avenge his father but cannot manage alone. He seeks the help of some swordsmen, one of whom tends to doze off during a fight. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Woo instills Chang Cheh's tutelage with his own obsessions, and ushers action cinema into the new decade"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"The half-dozen great set pieces (including one in a room full of candles) make this one worth a try, at least for fans."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Made by John Woo before he became synonymous with modern Hong Kong gangster movies"
‑ Marty Mapes, Movie Habit
