Disciples of Shaolin (a.k.a. Invincible One) is one of the Chang Cheh directed films produced by Chang's Film Co and distributed by the Shaw Brothers Studio.
When Shaolin disciple Kuan Fung Yi (Sheng Fu) takes a job at a textile factory he soon becomes embroiled in a bitter and violent clash with the rival Manchu clan who run a neighbouring mill.
As well delivering some impressive martial arts set pieces from choreographer Lau Kar Leung, Disciples of Shaolin also provides a political punch, underlining the abuse of workers and the corruption of cruel bosses. Fast, fierce and thought provoking, this is a must for collectors of kung fu cinema.
