Shaolin vs. Lama

Sunday, October 5, 2014

Rare 35mm print!

A Tibetan Lama (not a llama) steals a sacred Shaolin manual outlining all 72 kung fu fighting styles. At the same time, a young street fighter goes to the Shaolin Temple and meets an alcoholic kung fu master who agrees to train him. The Lama villain becomes an unstoppable master who begins to unleash his fury at Shaolin, resulting in a flurry of vicious kung fu fights. Now it’s up to the young fighter to save the day with his “Buddha Finger” technique. This movie is non-stop ferocious kung fu madness!
