SHAW BROS. KUNG-FU CLASSICS
DEADLINE - JULY 9
The 36th Chamber of Shaolin - BUY THIS DVD!
Shedding light on the introduction of Shaolin kung fu to the oppressed Chinese, The 36th Chamber of Shaolin stars Gordon Liu (Kill Bill Vol. I and II) as a young man who trains at a Shaolin Temple in order to seek revenge for the brutal slaughter of his people at the hands of the Manchus. Devoting himself to the study of martial arts, he becomes known as the legendary monk San Te, and single-handedly takes on his people’s oppressors. A definitive classic, The 36th Chamber of Shaolin spawned two sequels and helped to launch the North American fascination with Eastern fighting films.
King Boxer - BUY THIS DVD!
King Boxer follows the quest of a gifted young martial arts student as he struggles to win the All-China tournament despite ruthless acts of sabotage by his rivals. King Boxer’s stateside theatrical success has earned it the reputation as the first truly international kung fu classic and a paradigm for countless imitators.
My Young Auntie - BUY THIS DVD!
My Young Auntie blends light-hearted humor with outstanding fight choreography in the story of a two families united by marriage… and by the fear of unscrupulous relations seizing the family fortune. Kara Hui (Infernal Affairs 2) earned the Best Actress crown at the Hong Kong Film Awards for her intimate and intensely physical performance.
One-Armed Swordsman - BUY THIS DVD!
After his servant father is killed protecting their master, Fang Gang (Jimmy Wang Yu) is raised by the master as his son and trained in swordsmanship. When the master’s daughter chops off his right arm in a thoughtless fit of anger, Fang learns a new one-armed style of swordmanship, which he later uses to protect the master in his greatest hour of need. One-Armed Swordsman ushered in the new style of “wuxia” films, showcasing elaborate fantasy coupled with violent swordplay and heavy bloodletting.
