Storyline

A regional champion martial artist that moonlights as an honour-bound assassin, Tu Ta Shen, solidifies his reputation by challenging top fighters en route to the other champion, Nan Pa Tien, in order to unify both titles. Along the way he defeats a man who's shame in defeat drives him to suicide. Before he dies, recognizing Tu Ta Shen honour, he asks Tu Ta Shen to defeat a group of Manchu supporters led by none other that Nan Pa Tien. The dying mans son, Sa Woo, tries to kill Tu Ta Shen but is easily outmatched. Tu Ta Shen offer to teach Sa Yoo enough so that he can take revenge for his father. The two set out together; One to fulfill a promise to a dying man, one to keep a promise of revenge. Written by M. Astaphan

A decent but forgotten kung fu film
16 December 2001 | by (Vännäs, Sweden) – See all my reviews

In Sweden they sell a cheap box everywhere called "karate classics" with five old kung fu films from the seventies.. This film was the only good film in the box. The cover says "The Fox of Shaolin".

The story is quite boring and strange... mostly about honour, challenges, revenge and so on... but hey.. it´s old skool kung fu:)

Sing Chen play the lead role. The Kung Fu action by YUEN BIAO and COREY YUEN is very good. They both also play small roles. HWANG JANG LEE and LO LIEH is the bad guys..

A quite impressive role list.

I was very surprised! Any collector of kung fu films should own this one. It seems to be totally forgotten. I wonder why! I liked it.
