“The Legendary Weapons of China”
Director: Lau Kar-leung,
Starring: Lau Kar-leung, Lau Kar-wing, Hsiao Hou

Regarded as one of the best martial-arts films ever, 1982’s “The Legendary Weapons of China” cast off the traditional way of martial-arts moviemaking by, pleasantly, adding just as much plot, to compensate for the pow!. With its added detail and stronger storyline, it’s one of those films that even casual fans of the genre seem to enjoy.
One of the later Shaw Bros releases, it fixes on pugilism expert Lui Gung (Lau Kar-leung) who has decided to disband the group known as the Yi Ho Society. Suddenly, Gung discovers he’s a target for elimination with three different assassins – all unaware of the other – assigned to push the button.
A great finale, featuring some of the best weapons work ever.
