[VIDEO ESSAY] Before Bruce Lee's "Enter the Dragon" set a new standard for the American public's newfound obsession with martial arts movies in 1973, another, more traditional, Chinese Kung Fu movie had already set the stage for its success.
Despite the convoluted plot and large tapestry of characters, the film is packed with amazing moments, crisply shot and edited.
Helped bring on the kung fu craze of the '70s.
Spectacular classic kung fu film that shows the violent so the action choreography and story were the main attraction. This is a story of revenge (for killing a loved one) and the pursuit of the main character to master the "iron-fist-technique" that will enable him to wreak holy vengeance on his enemies. There is even a love interest, though the awkward, polite kind (found in most Chinese films of the period). The end result however is great and much more authentic than any Bruce Lee movies.
Another great Dragon Dynasty release. Awesome kung fu flick that actually improves with repeat viewings. I was surprised at how much was actually going on with all the different characters, and how certain characters shift back and forth during the movie. Really good stuff and a well deserved classic. Plus, great commentary track on the DVD.
This belongs in the Rival Schools subgenre of martial arts flicks, and it's definitely one that would top the list.
It starts off tame enough but builds up and up and delivers devastation and betrayal that almost becomes Shakespearean. Also if you've made it half way through only to find a lack a blood, don't fret, the spray will come and come hard in the last 3rd.
