About the Film:
Part of 邵氏兄弟 Shaw Brothers Retrospective
Directed by Chang Cheh. 1977. Hong Kong. 127 min. Mandarin with English subtitles.
In this film by Chang Cheh, the great international idol Alexander Fu Sheng stars as a wushu warrior who must learn the "18 Palms", the "Nine Secrets", and be taught by the "Seven Evils", to take vengeance on the man who killed his father—the Prince of the invading Chin Kingdom. With dazzling costumes, sets, and martial arts to fall back on, the director tests the mettle of future superstars Hui Ying-hung (soon-to-be My Young Auntie) and Kuo Chue, one of the most respected action choreographers in the world (with both Tomorrow Never Dies and Brotherhood Of The Wolf to his credit).
