Plot: Cop Holly believes that for some people doing the right thing isn’t just a duty or an obligation, it’s who they are, and when mysterious drifter Bruce helps her capture four runaway convicts hiding on her island, she thinks he’s just like her, one of the good guys.
Holly and the rest of the police praise Bruce for his assistance, and welcomed as a friend he considers settling down on the island until more strangers arrive looking for him. Shortly afterwards a decapitated body is discovered and when Bruce immediately disappears it’s apparent that he’s the killer. Holly’s dismayed, even when she learns that the victim was a ruthless criminal.
The new arrivals reveal themselves to be none other than colleagues of the victim, mobsters after revenge, and they force Bruce to come out of hiding by taking Holly hostage. Once again Bruce comes to Holly’s aid and once again they fight together and defeat a common enemy, but when the smoke clears Holly faces her toughest fight of all, the fight between her feelings for Bruce and her duty as a cop to take him in.
«Legendary Assassin is easy to forgive but hard to completely appreciate, as it only scratches the surface of Wu Jing's abilities. Wu Jing can really do a lot more than this. Hopefully a project will come along that will allow him to show that off.»
«The film is definitely action-packed, and the ending features a favorite of Hong Kong martial arts movies where our hero takes on an obscene number of foes at once – and in a torrential downpour, no less!»
