Starring Jimmy Wang Yu (BEACH OF THE WAR GODS) and directed by Lo Wei (the man behind Bruce Lee's  THE BIG BOSS and FIST OF FURY), A MAN CALLED TIGER (1973) is a martial arts extravaganza released at the height of an international kung fu craze.

Chin Fu (Jimmy Wang Yu) is a formidable martial artist who suspects his father’s apparent suicide was actually a cold-blooded murder. His desire for answers – and revenge – leads him to Japan, where he becomes entangled with the yakuza.

With the aid of his fellow countryman Liu Han-ming (James Tien, HAND OF DEATH) and a nightclub hostess (Maria Yi, FIST OF FURY), Chin Fu sets out to infiltrate Tokyo’s underworld, expose a criminal conspiracy, and uncover his father’s true fate by any means necessary.

Long rumoured to have been planned as the third collaboration between Lo Wei and Bruce Lee before Lee made his directorial debut with THE WAY OF THE DRAGON, A MAN CALLED TIGER instead became a vehicle for another martial arts superstar in Jimmy Wang Yu.

Eureka Classics present the film for the first time ever in the UK from a brand new 2K restoration.

Release Date: 26th August 2024
