And in The 36 Deadly Styles, a young man must learn a deadly new martial art to avenge the death of his father.

Capitalising on the success of Jackie Chan’s Drunken Master, The World of Drunken Master tells the origins of Beggar So and his friend Fan Ta-Pei, and how they learned their drunken boxing fighting style. And in The Old Master, Master Yu Jim-yuen (the real life teacher of Jackie Chan, Sammo Hung, and Yuen Biao) comes to the United States where he takes on an L.A. street gang!

aman123b.jpg


Jahr: 2023
Land: Südkorea
Darsteller:Jung Woo-sung, Kim Nam-gil, Park Sung-woong, Kim Jun-han, Park You-na
Regie: Jung Woo-sung


Ein stylischer und rasanter Actionthriller von und mit Koreas Superstar Jung Woo-sung (Hunt, Steel Rain)! Dank seiner intensiven Atmosphäre und der spielerischen Wandlung von Filmklischees hebt sich Jungs Regiedebüt trotz der vertrauten Story um einen wortkargen Ex-Gangster gekonnt vom Standard-Genre-Einheitsbrei ab. Ob er nun seine Fäuste oder seinen schwarzen Boliden gegen seine Widersacher einsetzt, Jung hat ein hervorragendes Auge für visuell ansprechende Action und beweist dies mit waghalsigen Explosionen, Verfolgungsjagden, Schießereien und Messerkämpfen!

Nach zehn Jahren aus dem Knast kommend, erfährt Su-hyuk, dass er eine minderjährige Tochter hat. Um ihretwillen ein normales Leben zu führen, beschließt er, das Verbrechersyndikat zu verlassen, das er sein Zuhause nannte. Boss Eung-kook, der auf Su-hyuks Freilassung gewartet hat, fühlt sich betrogen und befiehlt seiner rechten Hand Kang, ihn im Auge zu behalten. Kang hat aber ganz andere Pläne und hetzt Su-hyuk ein gnadenloses Attentäter-Duo auf den Hals. Diese Killer gehen auf ihre eigene brutale Weise auf die Jagd und schrecken nicht davor zurück, Su-hyuks Tochter ins Visier zu nehmen ...

• „Jung Woo-sung spielt die Hauptrolle in seinem Regiedebüt und demonstriert seine ausgewiesene Genre-Expertise mit spannenden Actionszenen“ Yonhap News Agency
• „Ein durch und durch unterhaltsamer und rasanter Film“ British Film Institute
• „Stylische Action“ Yonhap News

The Fall of Ako Castle (1978)

fall123.jpg


Originaltitel: Akô-jô danzetsu
Herstellungsland: Japan
Erscheinungsjahr: 1978
Regie: Kinji Fukasaku
Darsteller: Sonny Chiba, Kinnosuke Nakamura, Tsunehiko Watase, Masaomi Kondo, Toshirô Mifune, Kyôko Enami


Kinji Fukasaku (Battle Royale) brings together an ensemble cast, including two icons of Japanese cinema — Toshiro Mifune (Seven Samurai) and Sonny Chiba (The Street Fighter) — for this samurai epic, a retelling of the classic story of the 47 ronin.

When an injustice costs his master his life and estate, loyal retainer Ōishi (Kinnosuke Yorozuya, Bushido) vows revenge. Because the target of his vengeance is protected by the ruling shogunate, any retaliation would be seen as an act of treason. Ōishi assembles the remaining ranks of the now-masterless samurai and the 47 of them pledge a blood oath to avenge their slain lord. Tensions rise among the ranks of the ronin eager to launch the mission, as Ōishi bides his time awaiting the right time to strike. Enemy spies and assassins track Ōishi, who has seemingly fallen into vice: Has he lost his sense of honour, or is it just a part of his plan?

The Fall of Ako Castle offers a moving tale of loyalty, betrayal, and sacrifice where classical history explodes into brutal samurai carnage. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present Fukasaku’s retelling of one of Japan’s most resonant events.

Shaw Brothers Presents: The Basher Box

- King Boxer
- The Boxer From Shantung
- Chinatown Kid

shawbox123.jpg

At the dawn of the 1970s, a new kind of hard-hitting action film swept the Asian film industry: the kung fu movie, often known to Western audiences as 'bashers' for their emphasis on hand-to-hand combat. Shaw Brothers was one of the greatest producers of these eye-popping action spectaculars, revolutionizing the genre through the back-breaking work of top-shelf talent on both sides of the camera as well as unbeatable widescreen production value, much of it shot at 'Movietown', their huge, privately-owned studio on the outskirts of Hong Kong.

This triple bill of redemption and revenge kicks off in 1972 with Korean director Chung Chang-wha's King Boxer, the film that established kung fu cinema as an international box office powerhouse when it hit Stateside cinemas under the title Five Fingers of Death. From there we see Chang Cheh, arguably Shaw's most prolific director, helm the blood-soaked brutality of The Boxer from Shantung and Chinatown Kid, the latter set on the streets of San Francisco.

Shaw Brothers Presents: Four Films By Lau Kar-Leung

- Challenge Of The Masters
- Executioners Of Shaolin
- Heroes Of The East
- Dirty Ho

shawlu123.jpg

After masterminding the spellbinding martial arts choreography on dozens of Shaw Brothers' biggest hits, Lau Kar-Leung became an extraordinary director in his own right, using his inimitable talents and deeply-felt understanding of kung fu history to create his own idiosyncratic and often humorous take on the genre.

Lau's second film, the thrilling and deeply personal Challenge of the Masters, draws upon the legend of the real-life Cantonese folk hero Wong Fei-hung, played here by Lau's soon-to-be-legendary adoptive brother Gordon Liu in his first starring role. Having choreographed the action for many of Chang Cheh's 'Shaolin Temple' films, Lau took on the same historical legends in Executioners from Shaolin, jam-packed with extraordinary fight scenes and unforgettable characters, not least the evil Bai Mei, the White-Browed Hermit!

Lau's trademark mix of high-kicking kung fu choreography and knee-slapping physical comedy is on full display in one of the director's most acclaimed films, Heroes of the East, which pits Japanese and Chinese martial arts against one another and ultimately celebrates both. Last but not least is Dirty Ho, Lau's take on the odd couple buddy comedy, which shows off some of the most inventive action set-pieces in the Shaw Brothers canon and is not to be missed!

Shaw Brothers Presents: Four Films By Chang Cheh

- Five Shaolin Masters
- Shaolin Temple
- The Five Venoms
- Crippled Avengers

chanshaw.jpg

By the early-1970s, Chang Cheh was already Shaw Brothers' most prolific and well-known director with a plethora of box office hits (including the One-Armed Swordsman franchise) to his name and renowned for discovering the hottest young talents to star in his films.

Three of those stars - David Chiang, Ti Lung and Alexander Fu Sheng - all feature in Five Shaolin Masters and Shaolin Temple, two selections from his instant-classic 'Shaolin Temple Cycle', based on the real-life tales of fighters training to face off against the ruthless Qing armies taking over China. A few years later, Chang outdid himself with the formation of the all-powerful posse of kung fu experts known to fans as the Venom Mob, whose talents would be showcased most famously in The Five Venoms and Crippled Avengers.

Blood-soaked, brutal, and a marked influence on the 'heroic bloodshed' films by Chang's sometime assistant director John Woo, these four films show one of Shaw's greatest directors working at the height of his talents.

Samurai Wolf I (1966) und Samurai Wolf II (1966)

sam123.jpg


Herstellungsland: Japan
Erscheinungsjahr: 1966
Regie: Hideo Gosha
Darsteller: Isao Natsuyagi, Junko Miyazono, Ryôhei Uchida


SYNOPSIS:

A duo of chanbara masterpieces from one of the genre’s greatest directors, Hideo Gosha! Out of a desire to make what he felt was a truly no-holds-barred sword-fighting film, Gosha took inspiration from the samurai films of Akira Kurosawa as well as the spaghetti Western sub-genre they had inspired. Working with a low-budget to free himself from the restrictive oversight of his producers, the result was Samurai Wolf and Samurai Wolf II, the story of a charismatic ronin named Kiba (played by Isao Natsuyagi).

In the first film, Kiba wanders into a small town and ends up ensnared in a local conflict that’s more than meets the eye, and in Samurai Wolf II Kiba gets mixed up in a complex web of intrigue, involving a crooked goldmine owner, a cynical swordsman, and an arrogant dojo master.

With stunning black and white cinematography and ultra-stylish action sequences, the Samurai Wolf films are a lean, mean triumph of samurai cinema and the Masters of Cinema series is proud to present both films for the first time ever in the UK, on Blu-ray.

SPECIAL FEATURES:

- Limited edition O-Card slipcase featuring new artwork by Tony Stella [2000 copies]
- Presented in 1080p HD from restorations of the original film elements by Toei
- Uncompressed original Japanese Mono audio
- Optional English subtitles
- Audio commentary on Samurai Wolf by film historian and writer Chris Poggiali
- Outlaw Director - Hideo Gosha featurette with Tomoe Gosha
- Reversible sleeve featuring original poster artwork
- A collector’s booklet featuring new writing on the film by Japanese cinema expert Tom Mes

- HITMAN (1998)

leejet123.jpg


Darsteller: Jet Lee



SYNOPSIS:

After the massive success of the Once Upon a Time in China series, Jet Li moved away from period settings and started to focus on action films set in the modern-era, a decision that would make him an international icon and of the biggest stars in the history of Hong Kong cinema.

In The Enforcer (aka My Father is a Hero) Li is an undercover police officer tracking down a notorious Hong Kong crime lord. Teaming up with his martial-arts prodigy son and a female officer (Anita Mui), together they lay down the law! In Dr Wai in “The Scripture with No Words” a down on his luck pulp fiction author (Li) lives vicariously through one of his characters, an Indiana Jones-esque adventurer searching for a mythical scripture. Then, in Hitman (aka Contract Killer), Li plays Tai Feng, a young assassin with a “sense of justice” who crosses paths with the “King of Killers” — a legendary vigilante with a huge bounty on his head.

Eureka Classics is proud to present three of Jet Li’s most beloved action films on Blu-ray for the first time ever in the UK.

Darsteller: Sôsuke Ikematsu, Yû Aoi, Shin'ya Tsukamoto, Kôji Katô, Tatsuya Nakamura

Killing, the powerful latest work by Japanese master Shinya Tsukamoto (Tetsuo: The Iron Man), offers a modern take on the classic samurai film, evoking both the genre's mood and spirit.

In exchange for board and lodging, lightning-fast samurai Mokunoshim is helping out in the everyday lives of a couple of local farmers. To keep in shape, he trains with bright farmer's son Ichisuke, while sister Yu furtively watches them. When the ronin Sawamura (played by director Tsukamoto) suddenly appears, asking Mokunoshi to go on a mission in Edo, and at the same time a bunch of bandits are lurking on the edge of the village, the peaceful existence of the three comes under threat.

onep123.jpg


Land: Japan
Jahr: 2023
Regie: Yûdai Yamaguchi
Drehbuch: Yûdai Yamaguchi
Hauptbesetzung: Tak Sakaguchi, Shô Aoyagi,Itsuji Itao


Action film actor Takuma Toshiro is a man with only one goal: the perfection of action film acting.
But when his samurai-approach to the profession clashes with an industry addicted to wires, CGI and quick edits, Toshiro and his trusty apprentice Akira decide to make their dream film themselves.

When actual violence finds its way onto their film set in the form of yakuza mobsters looking for a hidden cache of drugs, Toshiro and Akira are suddenly thrust into action. Is this the ideal opportunity to take his "Real Action" to the next level? As lives are lost and chaos ensues, Toshiro finds that the gap between action "fantasy" and "reality" isn't quite what he thought!
