Swordsman and Enchantress is a 1978 martial arts film directed by Chor Yuen and starring Lung Ti, Li Ching, and Tony Liu. The film takes place in the Jin Dynasty and centers around two rival martial arts clans, the Red and Green clans, who have been at odds for years. At the heart of the conflict is the legendary weapon known as the Peacock Dart, a powerful weapon that can only be wielded by the woman of the Green clan. The weapon has been hidden for years, but when one of the members of the Red clan, Chi Cheng, discovers its location, he sets out to steal it for himself.

Meanwhile, the leader of the Green clan, Pei Er, has been tasked with finding a husband to continue her family line. She meets a man named Li Tien-lu, who she believes to be a poor peasant, but who is actually a skilled swordsman and member of the Red clan. The two fall in love, but their relationship is complicated by their allegiances to their respective clans.

As Chi Cheng continues to plot his theft of the Peacock Dart, the tensions between the Red and Green clans escalate, leading to a final showdown that will determine the fate of both clans.

Swordsman and Enchantress is a beautifully shot and well-choreographed martial arts film that showcases the talents of its cast. Lung Ti delivers a strong performance as Li Tien-lu, displaying both his martial arts skills and his emotional depth as a character torn between his loyalty to his clan and his love for Pei Er. Li Ching is equally impressive as Pei Er, portraying her as a strong and capable leader who is forced to make difficult decisions for the good of her clan.

The film is not without its flaws, however. At times, the plot can be convoluted and difficult to follow, and some of the supporting characters feel underdeveloped. Additionally, some of the special effects, particularly those involving the Peacock Dart, are a bit dated and may not hold up to modern audiences.

Despite these issues, Swordsman and Enchantress remains an entertaining and visually stunning martial arts film that is worth watching for fans of the genre. The film's strong performances, impressive fight choreography, and epic storyline make it a classic of the genre and a must-see for any martial arts film enthusiast.

Swordsman and Enchantress is a 1978 action movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 26 minutes. It has received mostly positive reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.6.
