This is a Stylish comic book of a movie in the same vain as chinese super ninjas. This flick is by far one of Chang Chehs best popcorn movies. While the first one armed swordman was very character and action driven, this one focuses on the action. And boy does it work well. Loads of creative fight scenes and just as important violent deaths. In my opinion this one exceeds the first. The bad guys are varied and each have differently creative weapons and the paceing is never lets up with a nice piece of action unfolding every 10 mins of so.
Well worth a look. But don't be exspecting any thing like the first.
