The female courier (Olga Kurylenko) tries to protect the witness while being chased by a squad of armed goons trying to finish the job.

Sword Master (Action, Martial Arts)

In this martial arts epic, renowned actor-turned-director Derek Yee pays tribute to the Shaw Brothers Studio’s 1977 film Death Duel, in which he played the lead character. After giving up his deadly skill for an ordinary life, swordsman Shao-Feng must return to his old ways as his past catches up to him. Challenged by his rival Yen Shisan and chased by his ex-fiancee Mu-Yung Chiu-Ti, can he find his way back to the sacred art of the sword? Besides the fact that Yee won Best Director and Best Screenplay at the 24th Hong Kong Film Awards for this movie, the fight scenes are a must-watch for any martial arts fan.
