The 13th Eagle

Here’s another Shaw Brothers classic. Chik Ming Sing (Ti Lung) an orphan raised as an assassin, leaves his clan and must fight them to stay alive and free, with a little help from a stranger (Alexander Fu Sheng) whether he wants it or not. His former master, Yoh Xi Hung (Ku Feng) is not about to accept Sing’s resignation…he’s the kinda guy who accepts only loyalty or blood…and who literally rules with an iron fist (a metal glove with claws). That’s just one of the many wicked weapons used, along with trademark Shaw Brothers gravity-defying Kung Fu. Lung and Sheng have the kind of grudging, comic rapport that makes a good action team, and their climactic battle with Hung is epic as hell…
