The Order Of Death

martialclub1

Martial Club aka Instructors Of Death is one of my favorite classic Shaw Brothers kung fu movies (you longtime sickies know how much I’ve dug the Shaw Bros ever since I was a wee lad)…it begins with a spectacular, colorful and exuberant celebration which culminates in a battle between guys dressed in animal costumes similar to the Chinese New Year dragon. The plot is simple, the usual rivalry between two kung fu schools…which is just a framework for many set pieces of excellent kung fu and comedy…Star Gordon Liu (36th Chamber Of Shaolin) is a master of both. There’s a great scene where he fights a guy in a blind alley that gets narrower the deeper you get into it. The Shaw Brothers always delivered the goods in thoroughly entertaining and innovative ways…
