Hand Of Death, The

Hong Kong-Gone-Hollywood ace John Woo (Face/Off, Mission Impossible 2) wrote and directed this early martial arts flick that also features Sammo Hung, TV's Martial Law, and a very young Jackie Chan before they became Tinseltown marquee names.

The Hand of Death revolves around the quest of a Shaolin disciple (Tan Tao Liang) to avenge his master's death and end the persecution of the Shaolin Temple and it's martial arts by the Manchu rulers. His mission is to find a Shaolin renegade (James Tien) who has turned traitor and now leads the Manchu's anti-Shaolin effort. He joins with an unlikely pair: a delivery boy (Jackie Chan) and an expert swordsman (Chang Chung).

The Hand of Death) is a classic kung fu movie that bears the hallmarks of a Woo Production - passionate characters, the bond of sworn brotherhood and unity, and superb fight choreography. A must-have collectible by Ardent kung fu fans and Woo and Chan followers who are interested in their early works.
