223 SB SWORDSPLAY '60s : ‘ Lady of Steel ‘

‘ Lady of Steel ‘

Cast: Cheng Pei-pei, Yue Hua
Director: Ho Meng Hua


A young swordswoman was on her mission to protect the country and battle the invaders. She was also to find the murderer who had massacred her family . With the assistance of a roughish head of a beggar clan, she eventually accomplished her tasks simultaneously …

Cheng Pei-pei and Yue Hua have definitively the x-factors to make this a successful and entertaining thriller with their rooftop leaping, improbable balancing on branches and great deal of traditional swordplay.

Rating : 3 stars of 5

In regard to Cheng Pei Pei's "Lady Of Steel, I find the storyline monotonous. This is the sort of movie that creeps up and taps me on the shoulder, for everything it shows is so familiar. Another 'borrow-and-nick' sort of screenplay from.......? Oh, it's "Come Drink With Me".
