The master of Dafeng Hall is beheaded by a traitor on the eve of his son’s marriage. Thus begins an epic and tragic tale of suspense and subterfuge as members of the Zhao Clan hatch an elaborate plot to bring down the evil Tang Clan from within.
Spies, counter-spies, double-crosses, and misunderstandings make up one of the most convoluted swordplay plots in history. Chor Yuen’s Jade Tiger is essentially the Hatfield’s versus the McCoy’s as two sword clans with a 100-year old grudge plot each other’s destruction and everyone suffers as a result. Many colorful characters, memorable weapons, elaborate sets, and a jazzy soundtrack make this tragic actioner an entertaining and epic one.
