7 Grandmasters

Sunday, October 5, 2014

Only known 35mm print!

A kung fu teacher sets out to prove he is the greatest fighter by finding and defeating the 7 Grandmasters. One by one, he fights their wide variety of animal styles (tiger, leopard, mantis, monkey,etc.) He also puts a young student through elaborate training, and is followed by a mysterious villain in a weird hat. Let’s be honest though, how important is the plot when a jaw-dropping kung fu fight breaks out every few minutes? Featuring multiple silver-haired villains with huge sideburns and maniacal laughter, plus the best monkey-style kung fu fight ever put on film. Directed by the great Joseph Kuo and starring Jack Long and Mark Long.
