The Eight Diagram Pole Fighter

Friday, December 7, 2018

One of the real-deal “fan favorite” Shaw Brothers films, this kinetic later-period masterpiece is packed with some of the studio’s finest stars and fight sequences, and helmed by Lau Kar-leung (director of the equally phenomenal THE 36TH CHAMBER OF SHAOLIN). Fu Sheng, Lily Li and the great Gordon Liu headline this tale of two brothers who survive a clan massacre and seek revenge, leading to ultra-violent, acrobatic smackdowns (including the dazzling titular pole fighting) that will leave you in cinematic traction. Don’t miss the chance to gather your friends for a martial arts party movie that will obliterate you; even the opening credits sequence manages to smack you across the head! NR / 98 min.
