Wuxia Film review: Oath of Death
This Shaw Brothers movie directed by long time Chang Cheh Director of photograhpy Pao Hsueh Li. This gore drenched, adult kungfu movie is not one of the best Shaw movies but it is fun. The first half an hour is strong with well done fights, has awesome music cues. The story is same is loosley taken from the novel the Three Kingdoms and was made into better movies like Peter Chan's The Warlords(starring Jet Li) and the much better Chang Cheh film Blood Brothers only two years after Oath of Death. None the less here it is if you want to watch it.
