Shaw Brothers series old film fully restored
from the original film.
Running time 111 minutes
The legendary martial arts director wanted
to do the impossible: create a kung-fu filled
epic about the making of a Shaolin Temple
master -- a "love story of the spirit," as he
called it. The result (a.k.a. Master Killer)
was Shaws' number one hit of 1978, the 24th
Asian Film Festival's Best Martial Arts Award
winner, and is considered a trendsetting,
innovative masterpiece throughout the world.
Liang's adoptive brother stars as a reluctant
rebel who arduously masters one training
"chamber" after another.
