Directed by
Cheh Chang

Jimmy Wang Yu is back in his eponymous title role for this brutally violent martial arts action sequel, directed by Chang Che for the Shaw Brothers Studio. In the earlier movie, Fang Gang lost his limb during a gory altercation with former classmates and became the exceptionally gifted One-Armed Swordsman after receiving lifesaving nursing and a secret martial arts manual from Hsiao Man, a farmer's daughter. They're now happily married and living a quiet life when emissaries of eight gang leaders begin touring the country, 'inviting' blade-fighting teachers to a competition to establish who is the deadliest of all. The catch is that most entrants will die, and refusal to participate means summary execution. While Fang Gang survives snubbing the 'offer', he's soon forced to take on each of the bloodthirsty evil eight in succession, all of whom possess different, but equally lethal, supernatural abilities with their chosen weapons.
