Snake In The Eagle’s Shadow,蛇形刁手, Bruce vs. Snake In Eagle's Shadow, Snake's Fist, Cat's Paw, Snaky Monkey, Le Chinois se déchaîne, Eagle’s Shadow is a 1978 Hong Kong martial arts action film directed by Yuen Woo-ping in his directorial debut, and starring Jackie Chan, Hwang Jang Lee and Yuen Woo-ping's real life father, Yuen Siu Tien.
(Synopsis): Jackie Chan explodes onto the screen in the film that launched his meteoric career. Brimming with imaginative kung fu styles, powerful choreography, and innovative training sequences, "Snake In The Eagle’s Shadow" is a dazzling showcase for the overwhelming physical talents of the world’s number one action star. To save his master, Pak Cheung Tien (Yuen Siu Tien), from certain death at the hands of dreaded eagle claw master Shang Kwan Yi Mun (played with gusto by kicking maestro Hwang Jang Lee), Chien Fu (Jackie) must combine the lethal art of snake fist with cat’s claw (his own invention) and undergo some of the most torturous training ever devised. Director Yuen Wo Ping, who recently shot to fame as the architect of the mind-blowing high-impact fight sequences in the smash hit "The Matrix", captures the action with perfect clarity and collaborates with Chan to create one of the most memorable action classics ever made. This movie has captivated audiences all over the world, and never seems to lose its magic, no matter how many times you see it. A true perennial classic of martial arts cinema!
