A wandering swordsman named Lu Fang (Jimmy Wang Yu) who is returning from battle discovers that several farmers have kidnapped the local magistrate’s daughter. He sides with them after learning that this is an act of desperation to improve their low standard of living. The magistrate hires bandits and another fighter named Huang Liang (Cheng Lui) to get his daughter back. Huang recognizes Lu as a comrade in arms and joins him in fending off the bandits. The standoff comes to an abrupt end when the magistrate uses one of the farmer’s daughters as leverage to get his own daughter back.

Everything goes fine till there is comes a 'girl next door'...Nice look away movie but nothing special, it has some background message for the viewer but further then that it does not go... At the ending the movie changes 180 degrees which could've been worked out better by the filmmakers.

It doesn't quite fit in with Conan Doyle's books, but neither do the recent revamps (e.g. the BBC's "Sherlock"), so that's not intrinsically a problem. I'd hesitate to call it science-based or realistic, because there's some dodgy physics in here; for instance, you can't tow anything if the tow cable is slack on the ground behind you. I watched this in the late 80s when I was at school, and I liked it. Rewatching it now, I've outgrown it, but I think it would still appeal to children now, and some of the scenes are creepy enough to be scary.
