Blu-ray release: ‘Three Films With Sammo Hung’

By   |  Jul 7, 2019

Eureka Entertainment are bringing a trio of spectacular Sammo Hung martial arts classics to UK Blu-ray on September 23, 2019.

The 3-Disc box is made up of ‘The Iron-Fisted Monk‘, ‘The Magnificent Butcher‘, and ‘Eastern Condors‘, all of which are presented completely uncut (for the first time ever in the UK) from brand new 2K restorations.

The Iron-Fisted Monk: After he is trained by the Iron Fisted Monk (Chan Sing), Hawker (Sammo Hung) finds his family and co-workers being targeted by a corrupt Manchu official (Fung Hak-on). When he goes too far and people start to die, Hawker and the monk must team up to put a stop to his evil doings.

The Magnificent Butcher: A plump butcher student of Wong Fei Hung, Lam Sai-Wing (Sammo Hung) gets into trouble with a rival kung-fu school known as Five Dragons and is accused of raping the head of that school’s goddaughter and killing his son. Now Ko (Lee Hoi-Sang), the head of five dragons, wants revenge.

Eastern Condors: A group of Asian POWs get a chance at freedom when the United States offers them a mission to destroy a secret depot of missiles in Vietnam. Little do they realise that this is one deadly operation that they are not likely to return from.
