I can't say much about the 3D version, but you can bet that director Derek Yee's own Death Duel reimagining, Sword Master, was an entertaining feat. My review is up for those of you who have missed out while you can now expect to see forthcoming DVD, Blu-Ray and Digital HD releases courtesy of Well Go USA.
PLANO, TEXAS. (February 13, 2017) – Hong Kong cinema giants Derek Yee (Triple Tap) and Tsui Hark (Flying Swords of Dragon Gate) join forces for an epic remake of 1977’s Death Duel, when the wuxia martial arts extravaganza SWORD MASTER debuts on digital March 7 and on Blu-ray™ and DVD April 11 from Well Go USA Entertainment. Visually opulent, the film follows a master swordsman who must once again wield his weapon against those who threaten his desire to live in peace. SWORD MASTER stars Kenny Lin (The Taking of Tiger Mountain), Peter Ho (The Monkey King), Yiyan Jiang (Reign of Assassins) and Mengjie Jiangin (Kung Fu Hero). Bonus materials include the featurette “Mastering the Sword.”
A powerful swordsman is haunted by the destructive impact his deadly talents have on others. Weary of the bloodshed and violence from the martial arts world, he banishes himself to the humble life of a vagrant, wandering the fringes of society. But his violent past refuses to let him go quietly. The master swordsman must regain the ability to wield his sword and fight those disrupting the peace he so desperately craves.
