  • VCI Releasing The Basher Box

    The Basher Box Set featuring “The Awaken Punch” (1973) AKA Fury of The Black Belt and “The Prodigal Boxer” (1972) both with new 4K restorations

    The Awaken Punch (1973)

    A film that bares many similarities to Bruce Lee's debut film The Big Boss, The Awaken Punch's Henry Yu Yang plays an altruistic fighter who begins to build a name for himself as he violently cleans up a town from within its more seedier elements. But when he must abide by a promise to his dying father to give up his fighting ways, he will be faced with a new challenge in the arrival of the knife-throwing master Tien Feng (Fist of Fury) and his gang.

    The Prodigal Boxer AKA Kung Fu The Punch of Death (1972)

    TPB is an early take on the legend of martial artist Fong Sai-Yuk (later to be portrayed by the likes of Jet Li and Alexander Fu-Sheng), here played by Mang Fei. Once Fong Inadvertently kills a student of the rival school run by Iron Hand Tan (Kurata Yasuaki), this action leads to a series of near death confrontations between the men concluding in a tournament battle of the ages.

    Awaken Punch is a lot like Fist of the Double K isn't it?
