Red Right (And Left) Hand

Aka King Boxer, this Shaw Brothers classic was the first Kung Fu movie to play in America. Yup, it’s the one who started it all. Lieh Lo is Chao, a young, up-and-coming Martial Arts student targeted by unscrupulous rivals who break his hands…oh yes, this is also one of the most brutal Kung Fu movies of the 70’s…And he must come back stronger and more focused than ever for victory in the tournaments and vengeance on the streets. Tarantino obviously saw this one…in Kill Bill he uses not only the “wee-ooo…shit just got real” music from it, but also copped its eyeball gag…and you know Tarantino only steals from the badass best…
