    The Sword of Swords

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Wang Yu has both his arms in this one, but makes up for it by losing his eyes. That last bit, where the bad guys make shouty fighty noises at blind Wang while forcing his bound and gagged friends and family towards him so he'll cut them down himself, has got to be the most cold-blooded thing I've ever seen in a Shaw Brothers film.

    It really isn't just nostalgia.
    I saw this in the theater when I was ten. I didn't know anything about genres then, but if I had, I would enthusiastically have said that this set the standard for action/adventure films. Watching it now, more than thirty years later, it is still the standard. It has simply never been equaled.

    I don't think it's possible for me to love James Franco more than I do at this moment. I do worry, though, how audiences who haven't seen The Room will react to this. If you haven't seen Tommy Wiseau, I would think you'd assume that Franco was giving one of the worst performances in recent memory. But if you know Wiseau, you realize that it might just be the best.
