Hitman in the Hand of Buddha (1981)

One of the best exhibitions of kicking in Martial arts film history!

A country bumpkin arrives to help his brother’s rice business. Things get out of hand while a rival company becomes corrupt. The bumpkin, an ace martial artist, fights off the rivals. Angered, the rivals hire a martial arts expert to fight the hero, only to get beaten up himself. The expert send his teacher to hurt the hero and succeeds. The hero is sent to a temple where he learns a new style of kung fu. Now with the skills, our hero is ready to get even.

Hwang Jang Lee, the famed villain from Drunken Master and Snake in the Eagle’s Shadow, actually plays a good guy in this film. I find it interesting that he directed and produced it and that he wanted to play a good guy (for a change)! It is one of the best exhibitions of kicking in kung fu film history.

Directed by: Yun-Kyo Park
