Abstract:This article considers an intriguing case of transnational cinematic geography, cultural translations,and productive appropriations in Hark's martial arts representations and (dis) enchanting "special effects" spectacle. No doubt, we can connect modern martial arts film with the historical writings on assassins in Sima Qian's The Historical Records. As well as a broad range of martial arts novels published in Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Mainland China in the 20th Century. This article also touches upon a great range of topics against the national and transnational backgrounds.
