We’ve being saying this for a while, Eureka Entertainment is the place to go to if you are a Sammo Hung fan. Today the distributor have announce the buddy cop action comedy Skinny Tiger And Fatty Dragon on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK.
It will be released as a brand new 2K restoration as part of the Eureka Classics range, available from February 2022. The action comedy also stars Karl Maka and Lau Kar-wing (who also directs).
Sammo Hung invokes the spirit of Bruce Lee in this high-energy action-tribute, playing a cop obsessed with the physical legacy of “The Little Dragon”.
Teaming up with the infamous “Skinny Tiger” (Karl Maka – the Aces Go Places series), Sammo becomes the larger ‘half’ of a luck-starved, crime fighting duo forced to fight a running battle against a crime syndicate of triad gangsters.
Combining brilliantly choreographed fight sequences and infectious physical comedy, this tour-de-force comedy-adventure showcases incredible action tributes to the films of Bruce Lee. S
