Analysis[edit] The film is one of the Chinese action films that helped encourage that there be more female action roles.[2] The director King Hu used methods of framing to show action scenes in detail. Close to the end of the film, the director used cutting patterns and edge framing to show how similar all of the fighters' moves are.[3] Hu also filmed The Fate of Lee Khan
