    Beach of the War Gods (1973) sees kung fu innovator Jimmy Wang Yu blend wuxia mayhem with a SEVEN SAMURAI premise.

    In the waning days of the Ming dynasty, Japanese marauders raid villages on the Chinese coast. A wandering swordsman (Jimmy Wang Yu) single-handedly dispatches a group of the invading thugs and agrees to help defend the town. He assembles a core team of highly skilled warriors, including mercenary knife thrower Leng Ping (Tien Yeh, BLOOD OF THE DRAGON) and hot-headed swordsman Iron Bull Chao (Hsieh Han, ONE ARMED BOXER).

    Together, they train the townsfolk to stand up to the pirates, using strategy and skill. When the army launches an all-out assault on the town, a ferocious battle rages, leading to final conflict on the Beach of the War Gods.

    Celebrating its 50th anniversary, Beach of the War Gods ranks among Jimmy Wang Yu’s best films, a briskly-paced historical adventure bursting with wild action. Eureka blu ray release with a 2K restoration.
