Shaw Brothers Classic film fully restored

Running time 103 minutes
To showcase his incredibly agile new star
Cheng Tien-chi, veteran, venerated martial arts
movie director Chang Cheh made this
spectacular, internationally popular, favorite.
Evil ninjas (who attack with, and from, fire,
sun, wood, water, and the ground) brutally
slaughter a noble Chinese kung-fu school's
students. The one survivor finds a teacher and
four students who are ninjitsu experts. The
five graduates take revenge. With this strong
structure and exceptional kung-fu choreography
(from the star and co-star Chu Ke), Chang Cheh
created one of his very best entertainments.
