Jet Li stars in The Kung Fu Cult Master, a sword
clashing, people flying, kung fu fighting, grandiose epic that will
leave you in a bewildered daze. You won't be able to figure out all the
characters, much less follow the plot of this truly over-the-top film.
Roughly speaking, the movie centers around the conflict for possession
of two magical swords which will give their controller supreme power -
or at least that's how it begins.
A young Chang Mo-Kei (Jet Li) sees his parents
forced to commit suicide by the various warring factions, and is himself
infected with the "Jinx's Palm" which makes him sickly and weak. This
all changes when Mo-Kei learns the invincible solar stance, which gives
him invincible martial arts powers. Accompanied by his companion Siu
Chiu (Chingmy Yau) he sets off to stop the fighting among the very clans
upon whom he's sworn vengeance.
However, he can only halt the fighting
temporarily, and then a new round of treachery, double-crossing, and
deception begins as the various factions seem to turn on each other.
This leads Mo-Kei to cross paths with the princess Chao-Min (Cheung Man,
who also plays Mo-Kei's mother), who seems to be at the center of it
all. Confused yet? Mind you, this is only the barest bones of the story,
and it doesn't even begin to describe what this film is really all
The Yee Tien Sword and Toh Long Knife are two rare
masterpieogs orafted out of gold and symbolises supremacy in the world
of martial arts. As such, every one is eager to gain posssession of
them, even to the extent of being ruthless.
