Fortunately, he was rescued by a group of Gold Canyon Heroes. In order to capture Iron Cloud, the Imperial Army and the Gold Canyon heroes were caught in a struggle, with a few of the heroes eventually killed. Iron Cloud, together with other surviving heroes, decided to exact revenge for the dead.

Eric Tsang spoke of 7 Assassins, “It is a movie that pays tribute to the Golden Generation of the movie industry.” The film brings together several of Hong Kong’s prominent stars from the 80s, and features Ti Lung (狄龍), Max Mok (莫少聰), Simon Yam (任達華), Lawrence Ng (吳啟華), Michael Wong (王敏德) and Ben Ng (吳毅將) in guest performances. Even the action moves, such as Max and Eric’s sword fight, Hung Yan Yan’s kungfu moves ,as well as Felix’s majestic arrow shooting, are all reminiscent of the choreography used in the 80s.
