Synopsis by Matthew Tobey
Director Joe Law helmed this chop socky adaptation of the endlessly remade and reinterpreted Legend of the Shaolin Warrior. Meng Fei, who had previously filled the role of the Shaolin warrior Fong Si Yu in Prodigal Boxer, stars with John Liu and Angela Mao as the titular Invincible Kung Fu Trio, a group of kung-fu masters who match wits and strength with the oppressive Chings, as well as the evil Abbot of Wutang, played by Kam Kong. The climactic final fight scene finds the group facing off against a trio of lookalikes created by the Abbot. Originally released in 1974, The Invincible Shaolin Trio is also known as The Dragon's Fatal Fist.
