I got to see a 35mm print of this and Shogun Assassin several years ago. It was one of the best double features I’ve ever seen. The plot is simple, the top sword master of Japan versus his Chinese counterpart. Non-stop action, sprinkled with strangeness, makes for one of the best martial art films in cinema history.
