About the Movie
Avid international kung-fu films fans have a special place in their hearts for this outstanding martial arts drama, which marked the ascension of director Sun Chung and action choreographer Tang Chia to legendary status. Tang also appeared as the “Chief Security Officer” in this powerful tale of the Thirteen Eagles Assassination Sect of the infamous Iron Boat Clan. Ku Feng is excellent as the poisonously patriarchal leader of the killers, but conflicted “son” Ti Lung and vengeful victim Alexander Fu Sheng command the screen as consummate warriors united in tragedy. Everything is exceptional in this endlessly entertaining production: from the cinematography of Lan Nei-tsai, to the script by Shaw Brothers’ writing wizard Ni Kuang, to the editing of Chiang Hsing-loong and Yu Hsiao-feng, which deservedly won the Golden Horse Award.
One of the iconic films from Shaw Bros. Nice story, great action ! Awesome acting and fight scenes from Ti Lung and Alexander Fu Sheng! The last fight scene can't be matched! Love love love this movie!
Great classic Karate movie
This was a good story and good fight scenes. These type of shows played on Saturday afternoon channel 5 at 3 PM when I was a kid. Awesome. Can anybody tell me who the master with iron claws real name was? So funny…to see this again
The “Godfather” of Kung Fu movies
This is one of my favorite movies ever, kung fu or not. The tale of a runaway reformed gang member being joined by a wandering stranger has a great twist. The martial arts are second to none, with masterful displays of every weapon you can think of.
Ti Lung and Fu Sheng are at their best in this movie, both as martial artists and as actors. That's right, the acting between these two is fantastic.
You won't just fastforward to the fight scenes in this one. It's the Godfather of Kung Fu movies.
