Very Good Documentary
26 February 2018 | by HarryLagsSee all my reviews

Kung Fu Killers is a 1974 Australian documentary directed by Brian Trenchard-Smith. It was shot in Sydney and Hong Kong and features clips from Golden Harvest movies. This documentary was going to include Bruce Lee but Bruce died as soon as they arrived in Hong Kong so they only include archive footage but never the less it is still interesting to hear George Lazenby and others talk about Bruce. Australian stuntman Grant Page travels to Hong Kong and talks to actors such as Angela Mao, Jhoone Rhee ,Jimmy Wang Yu and Stuart Whitman - who were all making movies in Hong Kong at the time. The only footage they show of Chuck Norris is from Way of the Dragon but there is some great footage of Angela Mao and others fighting though..

Brian Trenchard-Smith also directed The Man From Hong Kong a year later which also starred Jimmy Wang Yu ,Sammo Hung and stuntman Grant Page.

Conclusion - Very Good Documentary. Overall - 7/10
