Synopsis:
From John Woo, the director of Hong Kong movie classics including 'Bulle in the Head' and 'The Killer', comes the incredible 'Last Hurrah for Chivalry'; his unique take on the Wuxia or heroic fantasy movie genre. This time the guns are replaced with swords but the trademark Woo themes of heroism and honour are much in evidence as the newly married swordsman Kao (Lau Kong) seeks revenge on the evil Pai (Lee Hoi San) for wiping out his family on his wedding night.
Alone he cannot beat him so he enlists the help of Chang (Wei Pai) and Green (Damian Lau) to exact justice upon Pai - John Woo style! In common with Woo's best films this new brotherhood isn't as honourable as it first appears and as the truth emerges the scene is set for a climactic deadly battle. This, like the rest of the film, is expertly choreographed and beautifully captured in John Woo's brutally inimitable style that will delight fans who prefer their action hardcore!
