Movie Info

Sammo Hung makes his directorial debut with this period kung fu tale about rotund Husker who at the film's outset is humiliated by a band of Manchu thugs. Taking the advice of Tak (Chen Sing), a monk who comes to his rescue, Husker joins the legendary Shaolin Temple and hones his martial arts skills. After several years, he leaves the temple looking for revenge. He soon learns about a band of Manchus who terrorize local villagers and whose sadistic boss loves little more than raping village

Audience Reviews for Iron Fisted Monk

Excellently crafted kung-fu film dealing with the conflict between the Manchus and the Shaolin monks. We see the barbaric actions of the Manchus from early on in the film, and the tension builds quite steadily until there is only one option left: fight to the death.
Sammo Hung is brilliant as usual and his directorial talent can be identified in this film clearly. His martial artistry is great and his strength improves as things get more desperate.
The final fight scene is a fantastic display of athletic agility, superb choreography and totally mind-blowing action.
