Fans of Sammo Hung will be delighted to learn your collections will be getting bigger as Eureka Entertainment are to release Warriors Two & The Prodigal Son: Two Films By Sammo Hung. Making their debuts in the UK on Blu-ray from brand new 2K restorations as part of the Eureka Classics range in January 2022.
Two Hong Kong action classics from Sammo Hung, Warriors Two and The Prodigal Son both depict a version of the real-life kung fu master Leung Jan, whose mastery of Wing Chun would make him a legend.
In Warriors Two, Sammo Hung and Casanova Wong play two students of master Jan (played here by Bryan “Beardy” Leung) who must use their skills to defend their town against an evil businessman and his gang of killers.
The Prodigal Son follows Leung Jan as a younger man (played by Yuen Biao). Lazy and spoilt, he believes himself to be a great kung fu master not realising that his father has been bribing his opponents to intentionally lose. After being humbled in a real fight, Leung Jan decides to become a real Wing Chun master!
Featuring some of Sammo Hung’s most memorable action choreography, Warriors Two and The Prodigal Son are not to be missed and make their UK debuts on Blu-ray from brand new 2K restorations!
With this news, Eureka Entertainment has also released a new Trailer to promote the release, watch it below…
