The STACKS: Hapkido (A Kung Feb adventure)

To continue the observance of Kung Feb, Jack introduces Stephen to a lesser known martial arts movie. It’s a version of Fist of Fury (1972) that released the very same year, and was filmed on the other side of the lot to Enter the Dragon (1972). A busy martial arts year, for sure!

This is an early showcase of Sammo Hung, featuring Angela Mao Ying as a female lead (to what extent she is the lead, we will discuss in the show). There is also a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it cameo from a young Jackie Chan. The film is Hapkido (1972) and it sure enjoys having characters say the word ‘hapkido’ a lot… And Stephen and Jack have a lot of time for that. Listen here.
