YesAsia Editorial Description

A rare early collaboration between Hong Kong Cinema legends Jackie Chan and John Woo, The Hand of Death is a stylish swordplay film about the most popular of all martial arts themes: revenge. Dorian Tam stars as Yung Fei, a student of Shaolin in 17th century China who's called upon to avenge the death of one of his brothers. His target: a Shaolin renegade (James Tien), who defected to work for the Manchus, and is now in direct opposition to the many anti-Manchu patriots within the Shaolin Temple. Yung Fei begins his quest by enlisting the aid of other warriors with Manchu axes to grind. Among them is Jackie Chan as a spear-fighting master, who leaps from the screen in an athletic, but serious performance that predated his later action-comedy classics. Sammo Hung makes a rare screen appearance as a villain, and John Woo loads the film with stylish kung-fu showdowns possessing the same dramatic verve as his later bullet ballet classics. The Hand of Death may sound like a typical martial arts revenge film, but the legendary filmmakers responsible insure that it's anything but that!

Still, a Shaolin renegade Shih (James Tien) has defected to the Manchu, and is leading a suppression of patriots bent on overthrowing the Ching Dynasty.

Early Jackie. Customer Review Rated Bad 5 - 5 out of 10
Jackie Chan is a supporting actor in this movie. He plays the "right hand man" of the hero, but dies in the end. But he has some good fight scenes. The story is good (it is the first film directed by the now famous John Woo, who also has a small role in the film!). Sammo Hung also has a supporting role as a baddie, and for those with quick eyes, you can also see Yuen Biau get killed early on in the film! For those who are Jackie Chan collectors, this DVD is one to add to the collection. Good transfer, but no bonus material.
