One of the top rated films of the year and an instant classic, VENGEANCE is so loaded with Shaw Brothers filmmaking royalty, that even non-kung-fu fans will be left breathless with amazement. No screen team was more glorious than the "iron triangle" of director Chang Cheh and his dynamic duo of Ti Lung and David Chiang. The action mayhem created by acclaimed martial arts instructors Tang Chia and Yuen Woo-ping's younger brother Yuen Cheung-yan (CHARLIE'S ANGELS and THE MATRIX: RELOADED fight choreographer) gives David Chiang's hauntingly tense performance as the younger brother out to avenge his elder brother's death (Ti Lung) an even more mythical dimension. David Chiang won the Best Actor Award for his effort and Chang Cheh the Best Director Award at the 1970 Asian Film Festival.

Cheng Kang had just made the internationally popular cult classic, FLYING GUILLOTION 2, when he plunged into this social drama of police corruption. Liu Yung, co-star of every finished Bruce Lee film, plays a young man at the wrong place at the wrong time. Simply because he displeased a police inspector, he’s thrown into jail, where the warden is almost more dangerous than the inmates. But even when he’s released, the police persecute him until he has no choice but to become a real criminal. Only a kind and beautiful probation officer, played by Fanny, is on his side, but she's not enough. Watch for such action favorites as Ai Fei (The Kung-fu Instructor) and Chen Kuan-tai (Man Of Iron) in this hard-hitting drama, based on an actual investigation that linked second offenses to both the cops and crooks.
