Hand of Death

Movie Summary

Director:
John Woo
Released:
Unknown
Rating:
Not Available
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 master’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 Manchu’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 – 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.
