Gonna have to look out for this. The Yang family spear technique is quite famous! Would be nice to have 8 Diagram Pole Fighter (aka Invincible Pole Fighter) on blu as well, but haven't heard much about the classic Shaw Bros. Films lately.
Looks pretty good based only on the trailer, though I'll still wait for a review from this site. I'm also a huge fan of these types of films, so I admit to being somewhat prejudiced. I have no problem with them saying it's from the director of Jet Li's Fearless ... but is mentioning he also directed Freddy vs. Jason a good thing? I agree with previous comment about needing more Shaw Bros. films released. I'll even take them on DVD (the Celestial releases are good) ... they were coming in small batches a few years ago but now seem to have stopped completely.
