THE ULTIMATE IN KUNG FU…ONLY ONE FIGHTER WILL LIVE!
Another Kung Fu vehicle from the infamous Shaw Brothers Studio, ‘Disciples of Shaolin’ AKA ‘Hong quan xiao zi’, delivers a typically power-packed Hong Kong tale of enemy gangs and super cool fight scenes. 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 neighboring mill. As well delivering some impressive martial arts set pieces, 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 extreme Asian cinema.
