Sword Master


Adapted from Gu Long’s 1975 wuxia novel, The Third Master’s Sword, Derek Yee’s film brings Gu's story back to the big screen using state-of-the-art 3D technology. 

The Third Master (Lin Gengxin) of the Sword Mansion has been the most powerful swordsman of the land since the young age of 12. Having grown tired of the bloodshed in the martial arts world, he loses the interest to pick up his sword. Deciding to go away for good, he spreads news of his own death and goes into hiding at a brothel where he is simply known as a janitor named Chi.

Often mistaken by others as the Third Master, Yan (Peter Ho) is another expert swordsman whose only wish is to fight the Third Master. When Yan learns of the Third Master’s death, he falls into despair, believing that his goal will forever go unfulfilled. When he unexpectedly Chi, he doesn’t realise that the janitor is actually his dream opponent and even teaches him his secret fighting skills.

Meanwhile, Third Master’s former fiancée, Qiudi (Jiang Yiyan), has resented him ever since he abandoned her on their wedding day. Out of revenge, Qiudi tries to persuade Yan into killing Third Master. In a desperate attempt to lure the Third Master out of retirement, Qiudi commits a massacre at the Sword Mansion which sets the scene for a fierce showdown.
