    The One-Armed Swordsman, the old Shaw Brothers production that many credit with the martial arts boom in Hong Kong and eventually, the world. It's a quieter piece than I expected, as much an introspective romance as a swordplay picture. Some of the action is sluggish when compared to more recent films, but it's still a strong story. 2 years 5 months ago

    Please note that the packaging for The One-Armed Swordsman DVD incorrectly lists a commentary by Quentin Tarantino. Mr. Tarantino provided commentary for the recently released King Boxer DVD, but, due to other commitments, was unable to participate in the commentary for The One-Armed Swordsman. We apologize for this packaging error.


    Considering that packaging error is what got me to buy the movie in the first place, I was pretty bummed to find out about it. The movie itself is pretty enjoyable. I was just looking forward to Tarantino's infectious ravings that would have made it much more so. But this was a blind buy from the bargain bin, so I can't complain too much. Lesson learned.
