Ov (1980)
The Deadly Sword

Summary: So so

A lot less confusing than what you might expect from a Cliff Lok confuser (e.g. another Barry Chan/Cliff Lok vehicle The Last Duel). This one is a fairly straightforward righteous guy against the forces of corruption tale. the action set pieces are showy and clever without being very exciting or involving. The villains look suitably menacing, and there are some lovely images. The scenes which are meant to be romantic are far from involving or passionate.

Overall, not a bad way to pass 90 minutes.
