Preview: Iron Monkey [Blu-ray]

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.

Presented from a brand new, stunning 2K restoration, Eureka Classics is proud to present this iconic martial arts classic making its UK debut on Blu-ray.
