Another legendary Shaw Brothers release from 88 Films starring and directed by Jimmy Wang Yu.
The Chinese Boxer (a.k.a. The Hammer of God) is an action-packed tale of revenge when a martial arts school is viciously attacked by a rival gang of Japanese thugs.
A huge influence on the likes of Tarantino’s Kill Bill (2003) and Bruce Lee’s Fist of Fury (1972) this entertainingly savage story of resilience, skill and a battle against the odds, is one of the first true modern classics of the genre, focussing as it does on physical prowess and athletic proficiency over the more mythical elements of the wuxia era.
An undoubted cult classic, this is a must for any serious collector of extreme Asian cinema and martial arts madness.
