THE MASTER (1980)

 

 

 

While an obvious attempt to capitalize on the success of Jackie Chan’s SNAKE IN THE EAGLE’S SHADOW and DRUNKEN MASTER, the Shaw Brothers-produced THE MASTER features some of the strongest choreography that you’re likely to find in a martial arts film of this period. Featuring Chan’s Peking opera classmate Yuen Tak, the film meanders through a fairly standard plot before exploding in the final half hour with a series of some of the best fights ever filmed. A massively underrated film, also known as 3 EVIL MASTERS.
