Synopsis 98 minutes :
The East Is Red, also known as Swordsman
III, is a 1993 Hong Kong wuxia film. The main
character in the film is loosely based on
Dongfang Bubai, a character in Louis Cha's
Following Dongfang Bubai's apparent death
in Swordsman II, the jianghu (martial artists'
community) disintegrates into chaos as it lacks
a dominant figure to serve as a de facto
leader. Several imposters use Dongfang Bubai's
name to rally supporters, form their own sects,
and fight for power.
