About this movie

Lo Lieh was famous as Shaw Studio’s first international kung-fu film star. He was famous throughout Asia for dozens of superlative performances in everything from horror to modern thrillers to martial arts. But it was the rare saga Lo also directed, and this was one of those special events. Following his huge success starring as the infamous Shaolin Temple traitor in preeminent kung-fu filmmaker Liu Chia-liang’s Executioners From Shaolin, he returned to the role in this, a combination sequel and remake. Liu stayed on as choreographer, while his famed adoptive brother, Gordon Liu Chia-hui, and his discovery, Hui Ying-hung, stepped into the starring roles. The result is a lighter-hearted entertainment, as our hero learns "Embroidery Fist" and acupuncture to counter the evil White Lotus leader’s deadly "Weightless Boxing" and "Nerve Centre Shutdown" techniques. The permutations of their fights are delightful to behold.

This is an absolute classic Kung Fu movie, filled with bizarre fights you don't see nowadays. It is also the biggest role of White Eyebrows, or Pai Me as he became known in Kill Bill

Classic Shaw Brothers movie in the 80s on channel 5. One of the top movies with excellent fight scenes and good storyline. Please get more of the classic!

Somewhat light hearted at times, I prefer the 100 percent serious, I got to have my revenge type. But this is a very good film.
