The Iron Monkey (1977)
Reviewed by: j.crawford on 1999-12-09
The film opens with a highly stylized title sequence that must beseen to be believed. Chen and another actor demonstrate "monkey fist" and "eagle's claw" intercut with footage of a real monkey and an eagle fighting! The film has great training scenes as Chen's character learns the "monkey fist" kungfu from the old Shaolin master. Chen was a martial arts champion in 1969.
