Snake & Crane Arts of Shaolin (1980)
Released in 1978, the madcap mayhem of Snake & Crane Arts of Shaolin was a surefire sign to audiences that its young star Jackie Chan was soon to be even more famous than the man who paved the way for the modern martial arts genre – Mr. Bruce Lee!
An international box office success, this all-time classic is one of Chan’s most beloved masterworks and it is easy to see why. The fights come thick and fast in this relentless tale of a young kung-fu student with a very unique style – which attracts a series of curious competitors! Helmed by the great Chen Chi Hwa, who also oversaw the Chan classic Shaolin Wooden Men (1976), 88 Films is proud to present Snake & Crane Arts of Shaolin in glorious HD thanks to a brand new 2k scan overseen by Golden Harvest itself!
