Eureka Entertainment to release THE FATE OF LEE KHAN, the action-packed wuxia classic from master craftsman King Hu, as part of The Masters of Cinema Series in a definitive Dual Format (Blu-ray & DVD) edition on 21 October 2019. Available on DVD and Blu-ray for the first time in the UK, and presented from a new 2K restoration. The first print-run of 2000 copies will feature a Limited Edition O-card Slipcase.
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 trailer is at the link above.
