The 8 Diagram Pole Fighter – Promotion

by SMK on October 16, 2010 · 0 comments in Buddhist Blog

Released on October 12, 2010 came the official Region 1 – NTSC release of the 1984 ultra-classic film, The 8 Diagram Pole Fighter. This film features an amazing performance by Gordon Liu. The transition Liu makes to become a Shaolin monk in this film, is even more momentous than that featured in the film, The 36th Chamber of Shaolin, minus all the training scenes of course. The intended lead character of this film, Alexander Fu Sheng, had sadly passed away in a car accident at the time he was filming this movie. After Sheng’s passing, the spotlight of the film turned towards Gordon Liu. On October 20, Fu Sheng would have been 56 years of age, had he survived the accident. As long as there are fans around that appreciate the films he has appeared in, his legend will forever live on.
