A much lauded and analyzed top ten hit, it made superstars of its lead and director, who packed so much blood-soaked symbolism and dramatic power into it that then assistant director John Woo now openly acknowledges its influence.

5.0 out of 5 starsThis is one of my favorite movies of all time
This is one of my favorite movies of all time. The plot is simple and the fighting sequences are awesome. Chen Kuan-tai has that same poise and style as Bruce Lee. He steals the screen and makes you believe in what he's fighting for. Definitely worth a watch if you are looking for a solid kung fu movie to watch.
Outside of lacking some special features, this Blu is great for collectors of Shaw Brothers or martial arts films. The picture and audio is solid and the packaging - with a slick slip cover - makes for a great release.
