In 1977, fight choreographer Sammo Hung made one last film under his mentor, director Huang Feng (Lady Whirlwind, Hapkido) before graduating to the director's chair himself with The Iron-Fisted Monk. That film was the rarely-seen martial arts ensemble thriller The Shaolin Plot, which sees the pair reunite with Hong Kong heavy Chan Sing (New Fist of Fury). Prince Daglen (Sing) is hellbent on completing his comprehensive collection of Chinese martial arts manuals and mastering each form against his opponents. With only two manuals left to obtain, he sends his most dangerous henchman, a renegade monk (Hung) armed with two golden cymbals acting as flying guillotines, to steal the manual of Wu-Tang. To steal the sacred texts of Shaolin, however, the wicked Daglen will have to infiltrate the temple himself. The stage is set for a clash between Daglen, his cronies and surviving Wu-Tang student Little Tiger (James Tien, The Big Boss), alongside a lethal duo of Shaolin warrior monks (Casanova Wong, Warriors Two and Kwan Yung Moon, My Young Auntie). Based on a story by legendary storyteller Ni Kuang (The 36th Chamber of Shaolin), The Shaolin Plot is a classic tale of martial arts intrigue and deception, combining the incoming new wave of action with the old, resulting in one of the most overlooked and underrated kung fu classics from one of the most prolific Hong Kong film studios of all time!

Press Quotes

The Shaolin Plot is a solid martial arts film that fans of 1970's martial arts cinema are sure to enjoy. When it comes to the action set pieces, they deliver and then some

     —Michael Den Boer, 10K Bullets

Sammo Hung brings unbelievable quality out of his opponents or allies in fight scenes... it was [his] first starring role, and another classic for veteran director Huang Feng (Iron-Faced Monk, Hapkido, Lady Whirlwind)

     —Yonah Sichrovsky, Eastern Kicks

A crazy, must-own, package for fans of the genre with cruel villains, a blind monk and virtuous school of noble students all realized in a healthy production of a rarely seen gem. Certainly recommended!

     —Gary Tooze, DVD Beaver

A strong cast combine to lift this well-made Kung-Fu film up a notch and make it a recommended evening's viewing... Casanova Wong sets the screen alight with a stunning array of kicking that nearly steal the entire film

     —Andrew Saroch, Far East Films
