Sword of Honor (1996) Kung-fu cop battles thugs over an ancient sword that does... not much really. Then again, neither does the movie. TIL: You have to first learn how to wield a sword before it can be truly useful. That's even true for the "sword of the spirit" AKA God's word.
And then there’s this. I'm sure there's two or three of you who will get this reference.
