Synopsis

The story sets in Ming dynasty. The Japanese and Chinese pirates attack the South East coast area of China. The pirates bribe the local officials and high rank officials in the court and so it’s difficult to eradicate them. The Emperor appoints Wan Zhu to eliminate the pirates. Zhu funds General Yu to carry out the mission. Yu summons the valiant ones to attack the pirates. Yet the local officials intercept and the action fails. The valiant ones then disguise and set traps to lure the hidden corrupted officials. They play with the pirates by pretending to surrender. Finally, the two sides have intense fights on the island where the pirates hide.

明朝嘉靖年间,闽浙沿海一带倭寇流窜,作恶多端,尤以许栋及日人博多津为首的走私集团最烈。因倭寇与地方官乃至朝廷官宦亦有所通,实难彻底清除。皇上为清剿倭寇,遂命朱纨为浙江巡抚,朱纨又找来机智权谋的俞大猷,委以重任。俞将军召集民间高手伍继园夫妇、谋士汤克俭等一行七人,乔装商人设计诱敌。七人以笛声传讯,围棋示意攻略等计,成功截击倭寇,后因地方官抢功拦截而前功尽弃。伍氏夫妇设计诱出与倭寇勾结之官宦,又伪装投诚,勇入虎穴,并在贼巢小现身手略逞对方高手,更假意欲杀俞大猷输诚。最后,伍氏夫妇领将士至倭寇之大本营,在岛上决一死战。
