Editorial Reviews

The Shaw Brothers Studio produced hundreds of the greatest, most influential, exciting ad important kung-fu movies ever made. Unseen for almost two decades, these timeless classics are finally available in remastered editions. They are an absolute must for any martial arts movie fan.

From the director who gave Jackie Chan and Sammo Hung early breaks in film, Ho Meng-hua teams up with Mr. Kung-fu hero, David Chiang, in a funky, over the top, martial arts chiller based upon a secret kung-fu technique that is also the film's English title, Shaolin Hand Lock. Fans and non-fans of the genre will elate to again see Chiang match fists with Shaw Brothers’ number one villain, Lo Lieh.

The Shaw Brothers, the company known for their many releases of Hong Kong films for many decades ran by producer Sir Run Run Shaw, knighted by the British government and founder of Shaw University in Hong Kong and even founded the HK-TVB TV network was a major power behind the company and his third brother Runme Shaw (who founded South Sea Film), the film company would become known as Shaw Brothers Studio and become the first studio to bring Hong Kong cinema with sound in 1934.

The Shaw Brothers have created over a thousand films and with several having been aired on US television and some being released on video, "The 14 Amazons" gets its release on DVD courtesy of Celestial Pictures and FUNimation Entertainment via their Hong Kong Connection line featuring original masters of the original film and both the Mandarin and English dub dialogue.

In 1978, the film "Shi Zi So Hou Shou" (Shaolin Hand Lock) was released in theaters and would feature action star David Chiang (who is currently regarded as a Kung Fu legend/icon).

The film revolves around brother Li Cheng-Ying (played by David Chiang) and his sister Meng Ping (played by Chan Ping) who are trained at their father's martial arts school. Li Cheng's father Li Bai (played by Dick Wei) is the creator and master of the Shaolin Hand Lock which he teaches to his son. But because the move leaves open a vulnerable spot, his father gives him his armored vest to protect him from battle.

As Cheng-Ying and his sister go out for grocery shopping, an old acquaintance visits Li Bai but immediately, goes under the attack and tells him that someone has hired to kill him.

I have watched too many Shaw Bros flicks to count. That being said, I have seen some tremendous ones and some rather sub-par ones as well. The reason I jumped on this title was because it starred David Chiang. His skill in the movie "Shaolin Mantis" was stellar. With this movie, although there were some "decent fights"...I had a few qualms with the overall film.

When I think Shaw Bros movies, I think OLD SCHOOL kung fu. This film was a more modernized. All the settings looked to be in the late 70's to early 80's. I prefer the movies where you see the Manchu vs. the Han. The Shaolin Handlock technique seemed rather linear. There wasn't much to it. Most movies have multiple moves within a form...this style, not so much.

One positive I will give this movie, besides starring David Chang, is how the main character had to adapt to finish off the bad guy.

Overall, I give it 3 stars. It's one of those DVDs I'll pop in a few months from now, but it isn't one I'd watch over and over and over again.

Format: DVD
Shaolin Hand Lock is pretty good and centers around David Chiang befriending Lo Lieh's group to find out who killed his master (and why). Chiang's master had perfected the art of the Shaolin Hand Lock (with help from an iron vest!). David Chiang is his usually suave self, but this is not my favorite film of his. Lo Lieh is alright (usually I love his roles, but this one I just liked). It was very much the normal vengeance plot.

I own the Funimation / Celestial dvd version of the film, with extremely good widescreen picture quality (16:9), and English subtitles with Mandarin AND English language tracks. 89 minutes. The DVD gets a 4.5 out of 5 (Celestial is the top kung fu content releaser, period). Directed by Ho Meng Hua (Ho Meng-hua). 1978 aka Shaolin Handlock

I'd give the film a 3.5 out of 5, but the quality of the dvd bumps it to a 4 out of 5. Good film worth checking out, but there are plenty other greats out there (Ninja in the Dragon's Den, Five Elements Ninjas, 36th Chamber, Eternal Conflict, Knockabout, etc.).
