YesAsia Editorial Description

Though Chang Cheh only co-directed The Boxer From Shantung with Pao Hsueh Li, the film still fits firmly into his celebrated filmography of Shaw Brothers classics! Popular kung-fu star Chen Kuan Tai stars as Ma Wing Jing, a tough fellow who journeys to Shanghai with no money or support, and gradually climbs his way up the underworld ladder. Initially spotted and admired by righteous gang boss Tam Si (David Chiang), Ma is enamored of Tam Si's opulent lifestyle, and insists on carving his own underworld legend instead of accepting a place at Tam Si's side. Ma Wing Jing proceeds to challenge rival crimelord Yang (Chiang Nan), which earns him the respect and admiration of the common man. But power does corrupt, and Ma Wing Jing is gradually swayed by the bribes and protection money he once sought to protect the people from. When Ma Wing Jing's foes eventually challenge his growing domination, can he remember his righteous beginnings and regain his honor?

The compelling bond of friendship struck between Ma Wing Jing and Tam Si is the dramatic centerpiece of The Boxer from Shantung, and is representative of the famous male bonding themes employed by Chang Cheh in many of his avowed cinema classics. Chen Kuan Tai and David Chiang electrify the screen with their magnetic screen charisma, and the filmmakers provide the hard-hitting action and over-the-top melodrama that fans of the Heroic Bloodshed genre expect! Boxer of Shantung was later remade by director Corey Yuen in the 1997 film Hero, which starred Takeshi Kaneshiro as Ma Wing Jing and Yuen Biao as Tam Si!

Rags-to-riches fightfest Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
In "The Boxer from Shantung" Chen Kuan Tai plays an impoverished young man from Shandong who comes to Shanghai to seek his fortune. Inspired by the success of mob boss David Chiang (who also hails from Shandong), Chen doesn't want hand-outs or charity from anyone; he wants to earn his way to the top.

Jing Li, who receives top billing in the credits but actually has a fairly small role, serves as the film's conscience. Chen Kuan Tai becomes smitten with her when he is penniless, but she turns away from him as he begins to rise in the mob world.

As movies of this sort do, this one ends in a spasm of violence. Some may find it thrilling; I found it over the top. Nonetheless, I recommend this film to all fans of action films for its terrific fight choreography and interesting story.

one the best final scene Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
Old school flix with all star cast and crew. There something about the main character and the story that special. The fights are great for the time (early 70's), but the final scene where the main character has to battle close to 60 -80 men at a thea house, is .... what I call vintage cinema. This one is a must even if new audiences will probably find the fights dated.

One of Chen Kuan Tai's best films Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
Chen Kuan Tai, an actor who can never act had only 2 memorable films of his own in Shaw. This is one of them.

Boxer from Shantung Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
This movie was banned in Singapore in the 70's. Now I could understand why because of its theme that revolves gangsters' power struggle and violence. Glad that this show was officially released in uncut version .
