The Yang warriors fought fiercely with the Mongols in a war and were massacred except the Yang’s fifth and sixth son. The fifth son went into hiding at a monastery, determined to master his martial arts skills and seek revenge. The sixth was driven crazy during the event. However the two survivors were on hot pursuit by the Mongols …

Another Liu Chia-liang’s masterpiece of kung fu flick , but superstar Fu Sheng’s last and incomplete movie !

Thanks for posting this clip from this movie - do you know (or does the movie show) - when in the history of the Yang family does this story occur - is it after the events shown in the "14 Amazons" movie?

Hi Joyce,

'Eight Diagram Pole Fighter' was before '14 Amazons'... Worth watching !

Hi Lawrence,

If Alexander Fu Sheng didn't finish this film, then who was his replacement? Thanks.

Hi Amelia,

No replacement for Fu Sheng; instead the latter part of the film was re-focus on Gordon Liu and Kara Hui. The story is still intact.

Hi Lawrence,

Thanks. I wonder I can still get this last movie of my idol on net?
