Cast: Li Hua Li, Roy Chiao, Feng Hsu King Hu’s wuxia knockout revisits the template of his masterpiece Dragon Inn, gathering conflicting bands of warriors, officials, and spies at a remote inn for a battle royale. Hu’s filmography frequently foregrounds female action heroes, and never more so than the high-flying girl gang that dominates this notably Tarantino-esque film.
