Chinatown Kid, The (Regio 3 - Shaw Brothers) - Cheh, Chang
Releasedatum: 1 april 2004
Alexander Fu Sheng goes contemporary with distinguished director Chang Cheh in Chinatown Kid to battle the Five Venoms before they poisoned themselves into cult status. Filmed at Shaw's studios, Chang used stock shots of San Francisco to give the American illusion. The incredibly violent fights are immensely satisfying as man on the run Tan Tung (Alexander Fu Sheng) defeats each venom while succumbing to the seductive powers of sex symbol Shirley Yu only to learn that heroism leads to nihilistic desecration.
