Fighting Fists of Shanghai Joe

Series: Kung Fu Theater

Kung Fu Theater presents an extremely rare 35mm print of this kung fu / spaghetti western obscurity. Advance tickets are strongly recommended!

Shanghai Joe is a Chinese immigrant and martial arts master who heads to America looking for work, and ends up in the heart of the old west. Forced to deal with the intolerance of racist gunslingers, it’s only a matter of time before he unleashes his fists of fury on their hillbilly asses. When Joe frees some Mexican slaves, a group of knife throwing bounty hunters are sent after him (including a creepy Klaus Kinski) and an evil kung fu master sets out to track him down. Featuring wild fight scenes, over-the-top violence, and an excellent spaghetti western soundtrack by Bruno Nicolai.
