Product Description
£14.99
Maximum quantity available reached.
Anyone who loves the Shaw Brothers, and martial arts cinema in general, will be all-too-familiar with the work of director Chang Cheh. Perhaps the most influential of all kungfu filmmakers, Cheh helmed such trendsetting classics as THE ONE-ARMED SWORDSMAN (1967), THE BRAVE ARCHER (1977) and the generation-defining FIVE DEADLY VENOMS (1978). Yet, by the time the 1980s came around, he was not merely repeating the same old, same old - instead he was reinventing the chopsocky form with his late-in-the-day masterpieces MASKED AVENGERS, which is grittier and even more gruelling than any of its carnage-happy contemporaries.

Telling of a secretive hooded gang, who are raping and pillaging their way around the Chinese countryside, MASKED AVENGERS picks up a lightning fast pace and offers some of Chehʼs most masterful battle sequences. With blood spilled, victims tormented and fists of fury flying in all directions, it is doubtful that anyone who spends time with this Hong Kong movie masterpiece will feel disappointed. Almost forty years later and MASKED AVENGERS still packs a punch that places it as one of the finest Far Eastern action epics of all time. See it now in this eye watering HD restoration - uncut and uncensored for the first time on British shores!
