description

One-Armed Swordsman Trilogy - fully restored versions of the monumental Shaw Brothers' martial-arts movie masterpieces, comprising of "One-Armed Swordsman", "Return Of The One-Armed Swordsman" and "The New One-Armed Swordsman" are the representative works of legendary director Chang Cheh. Especially the movie "One-Armed Swordsman" which set a new benchmark for Hong Kong martial-arts films, broke box office records across Asia and won international acclaim.
Chang Cheh's One-Armed Swordsman films, starring Jimmy Wang Yu, David Chiang and Ti Lung, were written for the screen by Ni Kuang and Chang Cheh. The action-choreography was by Lau Kar Leung, allied with a talented cast and a brilliant production team. This trilogy is a must-own collectible for the classic movie lovers.

One-Armed Swordsman -- Star Jimmy Wang Yu and director Chang Cheh revolutionized Hong Kong kung-fu cinema and broke box office records across Asia with this brilliant action epic where the loss of an arm not only created suspense but symbolized teenage alienation. Universally acknowledged as the start of a new era in authentic and exciting Hong Kong filmmaking, this first great yanggang (macho) film even prepared audiences for the power of Bruce Lee.

Return Of The One-Armed Swordsman -- Director Chang Cheh truly proved that he was indeed the "Godfather of the Kung-fu Film" by mounting a follow-up which many say is even more accomplished and exciting than the original. Jimmy Wang Yu is back in the sequel to Chang Cheh's revolutionary hit, which many say is even more accomplished and exciting than the original. This time he takes on the "Eight Demon Swordsmen" to prove that one arm, attached to the right hero, is better than even sixteen.

The New One-Armed Swordsman -- Chang Cheh had made Jimmy Wang Yu a star in The One-Armed Swordsman. So when Yu moved on, Chang made David Chiang his all-new-one-armed hero in a film which deservedly won a prestigious Golden Horse Award for Editing. When the love of his life is kidnapped and his best friend is murdered at a gang's stronghold on Tiger Mountain, it's time for an amazing battle on a strikingly engineered moat bridge -- which remains a particular favorite among true fans of martial art masterpieces.
