Kung-Fu Nights has returned! 2 action packed films with retro trailers, giveaways, clips, and more!
Five Fingers of Death
A blast of funky trumpets signals the beginning of what is probably THE most influential kung fu movie of all time. Edgar Wright used it as inspiration for Scott Pilgrim vs the World, Quentin Tarantino cites it as one of his all-time favorites, and it was the first kung fu movie to get a wide release in the West, paving the way for Bruce Lee’s Enter the Dragon and kicking off the international kung fu craze. If that’s not enough for you, then consider the fact that it’s got action by Lau Kar-wing (grandmaster Lau Kar-leung’s brother), who would go on to choreograph some of Hong Kong’s gre...atest hits, including Jackie Chan’s Armour of God, Ringo Lam’s Full Contact, and Tsui Hark’s Once Upon a Time in China.
Lo Lieh plays Chi-hao, an humble martial artist whose master promises he can marry his daughter if he wins an upcoming tournament. Unfortunately, the rival school is run by Master Meng, who’s mean as a snake and twice as low. His punk son has no hope of defeating anyone, so Master Meng hires a kill squad to ensure his son wins the tournament by slaughtering every single one of his opponents. They blind some, disembowel others, and to keep Chi-hao from using his Iron Palm technique, they crush his hands. But two mangled flippers don’t keep a true martial artist down, and the movie ends in a tornado of fury and revenge.
