Impetuous young martial arts master Kuan takes a job at a textile
factory where another disciple of the revered Shaolin discipline warns
him about the rival Manchu clan, who run another nearby mill. Combat
breaks out between the two warring camps, with Kuan becoming his boss'
right-hand man but becoming distracted by the promise of wealth. Soon
his skills are put to the test by his opponents, who practice expert
boxing and the deadly: Iron-Finger Lock, which can kill a man in his
tracks. One of the all-time highlights in kung fu movie history, this
action spectacle made a star of leading man Alexander Fu Sheng (The
Eight Diagram Pole Fighter, Heroes Shed No Tears) and remains a stunning
high point in modern action cinema.
