Editorial Reviews

Skilled shadow boxer Ku Ting hides his skills by working as a construction worker, but his corrupt boss and his conceited son tied to brutal gangsters. When the thugs assault his girlfriend, Ku Ting has no choice but to use his teachings to show his enemies what it takes to keep justice in line. An extraordinary display of martial arts mastery, The Shadow Boxer is legendary worldwide as the most famous and final starring role for real-life shadow boxing champion Chen Wo-fu, who died before its release at the age of 24 and whose role here has drawn comparisons to James Dean.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
LONG before Yuen Woo-Ping's Tai Chi Master (1993), the great fight choreographer/director first flirted with Tai Chi in the 1974 Shaw Brothers movie "The Shadow Boxer", which makes this Image DVD a special purchase to those who enjoy Yeun's work and that particular brand of martial arts which gets rarely used in Hong Kong action cinema.

As Heroes Two (an earlier Shaw release for that year) introduced the Hung Fist style to moviegoers, "TSB" spotlighted Tai Chi. Writer Ni Kuang worked on scripts for both movies (he co-wrote "HT" with director Chang Cheh); he introduces "TSB" with a demonstration (which roughly parallels "HT" except in that case, the Hung Fist "intro" was done as a featurette that [initially] played separately before the premiere of "HT") performed by Cheng Tien-Hsuing, the Tai Chi instructor for the picture. Yuen directed the "regular" martial arts action only, but he must have taken a shining to Tai Chi; in the years to come, he'd come back to the subject again with his own films, including Drunken Tai-Chi [VHS] (1984), Tai Chi II (1996) and the Chinese TV series The Tai Chi Master (1997). Let's not get ahead of ourselves, however!
