The story is set during the Yuen Dynasty and follows many good and evil cults of martial artists as they all vie for control of a pair of golden swords believed to contain the power to overpower all opponents.

Alongside Jet Li are many notable Hong Kong film industry regulars such as Sammo Hung, Collin Chou, and Francis Ng, among others. Although the film didn’t make too much of an impression when it was initially released, the story has made a major resurgence in recent years. The film’s director, Jing Wong, returned almost 30 years later to reboot the property with “New Kung Fu Cult Master” starring Donnie Yen, and a sequel, “New Kung Fu Cult Master 2”, both released in 2022. .
