After a remarkable career helming such diverse cult favorites as "The Flying Guillotine" and "The Mighty Peking Man", trusted director Ho Meng-hua started wrapping up his Shaw Studio career with this memorable kung-fu adventure starring internationally renowned David Chiang. While he was best known for his roles as a grinning, streetwise, fighter in many Chang Cheh-directed classics, David Chiang rarely played a noble warrior monk, making this production all the more notable. Here he portrays the great Chih Shim, the monk who saved the Southern Shaolin Temple from the Ching Government and traitors alike. Shaws’ first international star, Lo Lieh, returns to the role he also made famous – that of Shaolin renegade Pai Mei. Rounding out the superlative action cast is the “first lady of Shaw kung-fu,” Lily Li, as one of Monk Chih Shim’s best allies. They unite for a true martial arts epic of the first order.
