After Bruce Lee's tragic passing, there was a rush to find a new kung fu king, and one of the contenders was a young lad called Jackie Chan. New Fists of Fury was the first film to show what the future megastar could do, as the street kid who learns martial arts at the New Jingwumen school, to stand up to the bullying Japanese occupiers (his teacher is played by legendary Shaw Brothers actress Nora Miao, no less).
An update-cum-remake of Bruce Lee's original Fists of Fury from the same director (Lo Wei), New Fists of Fury is a vital step on the path to Project A and Police Story. 88 films are proud to present this early example of the Chan goodness on Blu-ray disc.
