The Hand of Death (1976)
Reviewed by: Darryl on 1999-12-21
The Shaolin temple is being slaughtered throughout China by a ruthless lord. Around the continent a series of martial artists trained in Shaolin await their chance meetings to help re-build the Shaolin temple and overthrow the lord. One loyal student sets out, meets up with another, and so on.. Eventually the team sets out to help a scholar (portrayed by Woo) with a special map get to shelter. Yuen Biao is unrecognizable, Sammo Hung Kim Pao has bucked teeth and portrays the Lord's henchman, and it isn't the worst of the chop-sockey bunch, but it is far from the Woo most fanboys dig. I still liked it.
