Kung-Fu Theater - a continuing series of martial arts cult classics every 2nd Wednesday of the month @ Brewvies. Ladies and gentlemen, Kung-Fu Theater is proud to present When Taekwondo Strikes! aka Sting of the Dragon Masters (1973)!
Starring the great Angela Mao (Enter the Dragon), with fight choreography by the legendary Sammo Hung who also stars as one of the most meanest villains in martial arts history, and co-starring Carter Huang (Thunder from Big Trouble in Little China), "When Taekwondo Strikes" is an unusual Kung Fu flick set largely in Korea during the Japanese occupation of the 1930s with a mixed cast of Chinese, Korean, Japanese and American martial artists.
When a Korean freedom fighter and his pupil end up on the run from the Japanese, help appears in the force of nature that is Angela Mao, who has a score to settle with the Japanese aggressors. Together, they kick ass and chew bubblegum.
Featuring primo bell-bottom fu, Japanese Torture dungeons, topless floggings, and a grand finale w/ the intimidatingly badass Korean fighter Hwang In-shik (a frequent Jackie Chan nemesis) "When Taekwondo Strikes" is a 70's Kung-Fu gem with just the right amounts of cheese, well shot brawls, and a body count to be reckoned with.
