the worlds greatest swordsman has to kill all enemys to survive, attachment is not an option for him.
however will not killing his foe's child a mistake ?
he leaves his country with the child ending up at a run down town in the wild west.
he's put away his sword whilst trying to build a life for himself and the child, even finding friendship, however the town has it's own problem....a gang that will return again to ravage.
a former gunfighter, the town drunk, will join the swordsman in the fight, his guns buried will be again used, breaking a promise he'd made years before.
meanwhile the man who trained the swordsman years before is on the trail of his once pupil, a small army of 'martial-art' swordsmen in tow......there are now two large numbers of enemy to deal with at the same time.
must admit the film did have a very slow start, however it soon gets a whole lot better with much, both 'western' and 'eastern' action lighting up the screen........have seen better 'martial-art' style movies however i still believe it's worth a watch at least.
