Preview- The Fate Of Lee Khan (Bluray)

The final film in King Hu’s “Inn Trilogy”, and the follow-up to his highly-acclaimed A Touch of Zen, The Fate of Lee Khan once again shows the master filmmaker’s impeccable talent in creating drama out of a single setting. An espionage thriller with a unique wuxia twist and shades of Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai, the film chronicles a tense showdown between warriors on opposing  sides of a civil war in a rural inn. 

When Lee Khan (Tien Feng; A Better Tomorrow, Fist of Fury) a dangerous and cunning Mongol official, and his equally deadly sister Lee Wan-erh (Hsu Feng; A Touch of Zen), arrive at the Spring Inn to obtain a battle map that reveals the location of the Chinese rebel army, a group of resistance fighters, including an all-female group of ex-convicts plan to recapture the map, whatever the cost.

As much a pre-cursor to the ‘hangout’ movie as it is an action packed wuxia adventure, The Fate of Lee Khan features action choreography by Sammo Hung (Eastern Condors) and also stars the incredible Angela “Lady Whirlwind” Mao, The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present King Hu’s The Fate of Lee Khan on Blu-ray and DVD for the first time in the UK, from a new 2K restoration.
