The Fate of Lee Khan
DIRECTOR: KING HU
CAST: LI HUA LI, ROY CHIAO, FENG HSU
Hu enlisted a bevy of female stars including Hong Kong cinema stalwart Li Li-hua and martial arts ingénue Mao to lead the action and intrigue in this classic wuxia adventure. Hu once again centers the plot at an inn, a veritable hot pot of simmering conflict, where girl-gang undercover resistance fighters are pitted against oppressive Mongols, trying to stop a traitor from passing vital information to warlord Lee Khan. The ensuing struggle is perfectly highlighted by wry comic moments, masterful mise-en-scene, and breakout fight scenes from choreographer Sammo Hung.
