Another great Shaw Bros. DVD from Tokyo Shock!!

"Tokyo Shock has done a great job with the other five Shaw Bros. films they have released thus far (as well as their release of "7 Grand Masters"). I really hope they KEEP 'EM COMING, because the video and audio quality on "Martial Club" and the aforementioned DVDs have been superb. This DVD features anamorphic widescreen, english, cantonese and mandarin audio, and english and slates subtitles.
As for the movie itself, it stars Gordon Liu, easily one of the most entertaining and charismatic kung fu film stars EVER, as Chinese folk hero Wong Fei-hung. If you enjoy Kung Fu flicks, you will enjoy this movie! Do you really need a long plot summary?
Here's hoping that Tokyo Shock and the other companies producing QUALITY RELEASES of classic Kung Fu Films IN WIDESECREEN with the ORIGINAL AUDIO TRACK and ENGLISH SUBTITLES will continue. The other companies I'm talking about are Image Entertainment, Dragon Dynasty, Well Go USA, and Jade Tiger. Now, if only one of them could get the American license for "Return to the 36th Chamber", "Dirty Ho", or "The Five Deadly Venoms"..."
Gordon Lui and Wang Lung Wei throw down

"This is one of a few Lau Kar Leung,Gordon Liu,and Wang Lung Wei collaborations and it's a classic the story is about conflict amongst kung fu schools and Lau Kar Leungs choragraphy is great. Amazing how well Gordon Liu and Wang Lung Wei match each other punch for punch and kick for kick. This movie is more of a study on perfection in martial arts and not kill for revenge as in most fight films."
