“Shaolin vs. Wu Tang (1983)“! In a plot to make himself the master of both disciplines, a jealous Qing leader [Wang Lung‑wei] forces two friends from rival martial arts schools [Gordon Liu & Adam Cheng] to fight each other. That sums it up. It’s a pretty simple flick but the opening credits are visually stunning with beautiful choreography.
This one was introduced by a Kung Fu friend I made in High School, Donnie. He turned me onto a few non-Shaw Brothers films back in 1985. I’ll forever be in his debt.
I enjoy a great Shaw Brothers‘ Kung Fu Classic from time to time. Tonight it’s the “Five Deadly Venoms”, on Netflix. The twist is that I am watching in Mandarin. The story is much smoother than the dubbed version. I cannot recomend this flick enough. Check it out for yourself. You can also rent it via Google Play. Intrigue, and action to the Nth degree.
