Duel To The Death: A Retrospective

This beautiful Ching Siu Tung film is a genuine masterpiece. It looks, sounds and feels truly epic, like a 1960's King Hu film. Everything about it is classy, unlike so many HK movies that rely on goofy humour or cheap silliness. There are no evil villains, everyone has a motivation for what they do, whether its duty, honour, or love. And the action scenes rock. Think of it as Ninja In The Dragons Den's older, wiser brother.
