Yuen Woo-ping’s Iron Monkey on Blu-ray from Eureka Classics in June

23 March 2018

Eureka Entertainment are to release Iron Monkey [Siunin Wong Fei-hung tsi titmalau], Yuen Woo-ping’s kung-fu classic for the first time on Blu-ray in the UK in June.

A breathtaking action adventure from perhaps the greatest action choreographer of all time, Yuen Woo-ping’s Iron Monkey combines mind-blowing fight choreography, with a classic story of courage, honour and sacrifice.

Wong Kei-ying (Donnie Yen – Ip Man, Rogue One), a physician and martial artist, is mistaken for a masked vigilante known as the Iron Monkey (Yu Rong-kwong); a Robin Hood style hero who has been robbing the wealthy local officials in order to provide medical treatment for the poor. The two men must team up to defeat a corrupt political regime, and protect the lives of the people whose cause they champion.
