Seven Swords is a 2005 Hong Kong wuxia film produced and directed by Tsui Hark, starring Leon Lai, Donnie Yen, Charlie Yeung, Sun Honglei, Lu Yi and Kim So-yeon. The story is loosely adapted from Liang Yusheng's novel Qijian Xia Tianshan and is completely unrelated to the novel except for some characters' names. Seven Swords was used as the opening film to the 2005 Venice Film Festival and as a homage to Akira Kurosawa's 1954 film Seven Samurai.

Tsui Hark’s next major film after a CGI-driven remake of his own Zu: Warriors from the Magic Mountain in 2001, this is a less effects-driven wuxia epic than a riff on Seven Samurai with a Chang Cheh influence (the Northern Chinese medieval warfare of The Heroic Ones comes to mind). A gang of Qing bounty hunters has an Imperial command to kill anyone who knows martial arts, a former Ming minister tries to stop them from wiping out a village (they kill indiscriminately to collect more reward: old people and children too) . The main problem with the film is its seriousness. Even at his darkest, there’s a streak of subversive wit in Tsui Hark, but this is all straight epic melodrama.

A magnificent seven bands together to save villagers from annihilation in "Seven Swords," a muddled, occasionally gripping but way overlong pic that marks Hong Kong helmer Tsui Hark's return to prestige filmmaking. Much-ballyhooed production opened softly in Asia in late July and doesn't look likely to impress Western viewers.

Seven Swords:Screen Daily is reporting that legendary Hong Kong action maestro Tsui Hark is finally gearing up to begin shooting his first feature. Renowned as a major innovator and master of the action genre, Hark has been out of the director’s chair since 2002 –- a fairly long hiatus by Hong Kong standards –- but he has kept himself busy, producing several projects in the interim, including Wellson Chin’s Vampire Effect, and Marco Mak’s Xanda.
