Fong sai yuk (1993) aka The Legend
As the emperor tries to crush the Red Lotus Society, Fong Sai Yuk goes through his life studying martial arts. Through complications, he falls in love with a beautiful girl and unknowing ends up engaged to her, his mother pretends to be his brother who is loved by his fiancee's mother, and the Emperors man tries to kill everyone.
Fantastic action sequences don't just punctuate the the story but help drive it along. Beautifully acted and amazingly staged this is a film that is just as good as martial arts films can get. Eveything just works from top to bottom.
