Eagle Shadow Fist (1973)

Set in China during Japanese occupation, this film follows a group of actors/resistance fighters who are kicked out of their theatre and forced into a shabby hideaway. It is from here they fend off the appallingly presented Japanese whose only intent, it seems, is to rape, maim, kill and terrorise. The only reason this one hasn’t been banished into celluloid hell is because of a sprightly support from a young Jackie Chan. But even hardened Chan fans will find this pulp a little hard to swallow. To simplify, it is a bad, bad film.
