Don't think this is really a movie
16 December 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There is a DVD of this series of film clips sold by Video Asia under the Shaw Legends Collection title. I call it film clips because I'm being kind to one of my favorite golden age of martial arts movies star Chen Kuan-Tai. "Hero of Shanghai" does not appear to me to be a fully edited and finished movie. There is serious lack of continuity between the simplest cuts. The same reaction shots seem to be used many times. I found the "movie" to be unwatchable after about thirty minutes. I do recommend the DVD because of the interviews and documentary. The documentary about the old Shaw Brothers empire in Hong Kong was worth the price of admission.
