This film is the epic, multi-generational tale of uncovering how exactly to punch a murderer in the dick. And in the end, the day is saved by wig-snatching.
Executioners from Shaolin is a Shaw Brothers film, the most prolific and influential studio in Chinese cinema. We tease, but this is a time to pay tribute to a troupe of incredibly skilled actors and athletes. The stunts they pull of in this film, including dragging a man around by the foot with thigh muscle alone and putting out a FLAMING METAL STATUE WITH YOUR HANDS, are beyond awesome.
Shawn also has some very special words for Quentin Tarantino.
