Iron Monkey (1977)
The thirst for vengeance fuels determination in an irresponsible young man in this classic Hong Kong martial arts film. Despite the fact that his father is a respected rebel leader, young Iron Monkey opts to spend his carefree days gambling and breaking into the occasional bout of fisticuffs. His fun is short-lived, however, when his father and the rest of the rebel forces are arrested and executed in a harrowing Manchurian massacre. Fleeing into the woods to escape his malicious attackers, young Iron Monkey soon finds refuge in a local Shaolin monastery. Though things are hard going for him at first, Iron Monkey is soon taken in by the legendary Bitter Monk and enrolled into a grueling training regimen. Only when he has mastered the art of Monkey-Style kung fu will young Iron Monkey be prepared to take revenge on the fearsome chief of the Manchus. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi … More
