Hong Kong-gone-Hollywood ace John Woo (Face/Off, Mission Impossible 2) wrote and directed this early martial arts flick that also features Sammo Hung (Martial Law) and a very young Jackie Chan before they became Tinseltown marquee names.The Hand of Death revolves around the quest of a Shaolin disciple (Tan Tao Liang) to avenge his masterâ€™s death and end the persecution of the Shaolin Temple and its martial arts by the Manchu rulers. His mission is to find a Shaolin renegade (James Tien) who has turned traitor and now leads the Manchuâ€™s anti-Shaolin effort. He joins forces with an unlikely pair: delivery boy (Jacky Chan) and an expert swordsman (Chang Chung).A classic kung fu movie that bears the hallmark of a Woo production â€“ passionate characters, the bond of sworn brotherhood and unity and superb fight choreography. A must-have collectible by ardent kung fu fans and Woo and Chan followers who are interested in their early works.
