Directed by Liu Chia-Liang

Jet Li weasels out of the north Shaolin temple to assassinate a despotic ruler at the ruler’s extravagant public birthday celebration. Two other men from the south Shaolin temple also set out to assassinate the ruler, but all three fail and are chased all over by soldiers. Meanwhile, one of the southerners turns out to be a cross-dressed woman, who is also discovered to wear a footbell to match Jet Li’s, meaning they are somehow slated for an arranged marriage.

Viewing Notes

Huh, I thought I had seen this recently… like within the past year. But according to ML it’s been since 2012. Damn. I should have revisited this last year for my 100 Kung Fu project.
