Magnificent Trio (1966)

Magnificent Trio is the 3rd feature film directed by the now legendary Chang Cheh for the Shaw Bros. studio. The film features a very young Jimmy Wang Yu along with a very young Lo Lieh and a very young Cheng Lui as the three martial artists of the title. The movie has a colorful, compelling story that builds to a grand finale. Mr. Chang was fortunate that producer Runme Shaw teamed him with experienced action directors Tong Gaai and Liu Chia-Liang. They take full advantage of the castís sharp skills. The Celestial DVD is well worth a look if you are a fan of the old school martial arts films.
