About this movie

Long before Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon wowed the western world, Come Drink With Me set an entirely new standard for martial arts movies in the Far East. Director King Hu not only broke new ground but set the groundwork for all the action films that followed, including Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Come Drink With Me tells the story of a mysterious swordswoman nicknamed "Golden Swallow", and the even more mysterious swordsman, "Beggar". They join forces to free a kidnapped official from a Buddhist monastery run by a corrupt abbot with incredible kung-fu powers. But the real attention-getters are the ingeniously staged action scenes and a cast of characters that looks as cool today as when the film burst upon the cinema scene in 1966.

Not one of the best Shaw Brothers films, sloppy editing and bad special effects. The fight scenes were incredibly slow, most Wuxia films with male and female fighters are intense like they really trying to do some harm. Not this one. I have been watching Shaw Brothers films since the 1980's, this is by far one of the worst films in their collection. Such a disappointment since I have been wanting to see this film for a long time.
