Last Hurrah for Chivalry (1979)

With Red Cliff on release in the cinema, perhaps it’s a good time to dust off John Woo’s other swordplay (or wuxia) movie The Last Hurrah For Chivalry.

The movie essentially concerns two hired killers, one semi-retired (Wei Pei) is poor, honest and has refused to draw his sword for years, the other played by Damien Lau is an wine-sploshing acoholic whose every line of dialogue reads like the kind of poetry you might find in clintons (yes, the greetings card shop). After a friendship is formed both men decide to help a sinister and suspicious looking merchant to avenge some deaths and personal insults. The man they must kill is a deadly kung-fu master played by Lee Hoi San. Read More
