Killer Constable (Shaw Bros / 88 Films) (Blu-Ray Region B)
Slice, dice, repeat…
One of the bloodiest and most bombastic swordplay films from the Golden Age of Hong Kong cinema finally makes it to British Blu-Ray! Released to ecstatic critical feedback in 1980, KILLER CONSTABLE has long been regarded as a Far Eastern masterpiece – with cultists more than willing to compare it to such lofty contemporary achievements as Wong Kar Wai’s THE GRANDMASTER.
Starring the legendary Chen Kuan-tai (THE MASTER, IRON MONKEY) as a lawman operating during ancient China – and whose slash-happy manner when it comes to upholding justice might even give Dirty Harry nightmares – KILLER CONSTABLE is one of the finest martial arts movies to ever cut loose from the Shaw Brothers studios. With a stern protagonist, plenty of formidable fight sequences, and expert direction from the late, great Kuei Chih-Hung (THE BOXER’S OMEN/ BAMBOO HOUSE OF DOLLS), it is hard to deny that KILLER CONSTABLE is one of the sharpest and most entertaining epics in the 88 Asia range.
Let it tear its way into your living in this very special UK edition.
