Chinese Hercules follows a martial arts fighter, haunted by his past, who takes a job as a dock worker in a small village. The villagers are dependent on the traffic that comes to the pier, which gives its cruel owner too much power over his beleaguered workers. The situation worsens when an even crueler gangster takes control. His most powerful weapon is his henchman, a muscle-bound brute, who remorselessly and easily cracks the skulls and breaks the necks of anyone who gets in the way. The new dock worker had sworn never to fight again, but the deaths of his co-workers force him to act.
Chinese Hercules (1973) Review:
As mentioned earlier, the struggle of the village’s inhabitants against the big bosses is possibly the best feature of CHINESE HERCULES. Add into that an emotionally torn Lee and a huge-ass bad guy and you’ve got a solid script, and a great movie. Chinese Hercules wasn’t that bad of a fight flick at all, decent plot and everything. Also stars the chubby punk who “scolded” Bruce Lee for not wearing his uniform in Enter The Dragon.
