Picked up for U.S. distribution by Warner Brothers and retitled Five Fingers of Death, this 1972 feature from Hong Kong’s Shaw Brothers Ltd. became the first international kung fu hit, followed in quick succession by the Kung Fu TV series and Bruce Lee’s ascent to stardom. Lo Lieh gives a subtle, charismatic performance as a young fighter from the sticks whose master sends him to hone his skills at a prestigious martial-arts school; once there he becomes embroiled in a battle with a rival academy. In Mandarin with subtitles. 97 min.
