    • Synopsis
    • A vicious killer Fung (Wang Baoqiang) is going round Hong Kong killing top martial arts exponents, leaving a secret weapon called the Eaves Swallow as his calling card. When convicted killer and kung fu expert, Hahou (Donnie Yen) hears of this, he offers to help the police catch the killer, in return for his freedom. With Hahou’s help, the police realize from the chronological order of the victims that the killer is targeting his victims, all the top masters in their martial arts style, following a martial code of training. When Hahou also disappears after a close encounter with Fung, they suspect the worse: that the two are accomplices and Fung was the bait to help spring Hahou from jail. But Hahou has actually gone back to his home in Foshan to find out more about the mysterious calling card. While doing so, he discovers the killer’s identity and his motivation: the true philosophy behind martial arts was to kill opponents who were weaker than him. Steadfastly, Hahou refuses to be drawn into a fight with Fung – until the killer threatens the woman he loves most. Only then does he realize that he would have to go against the martial code in order to uphold it.
