8 Diagram Pole Fighter (1984)

9/10 - Ferocious!
Reviewed by Simon on 17 January 2006
This was Fu Sheng's final film, as he died in a car accident part way through production. A ferocious martial arts film, incredibly intense from start to finish (partly because everyone seems to have been directed to shout all their lines). Gordon Liu proves once again that he is "the man". Fantastic pole fighting scenes - defang the wolf!
