    VCI Entertainment and MVD Entertainment are offering SciFi Japan readers a chance to win their new THE BASHER BOX Blu-ray set containing new 4k restorations of THE PRODIGAL BOXER and THE AWAKEN PUNCH. 

    In a 1973 film that bares many similarities to Bruce Lee's debut film THE BIG BOSS, THE AWAKEN PUNCH's Henry Yu Yang plays an altruistic fighter who begins to build a name for himself as he violently cleans up a town from within its more seedier elements. But when he must abide by a promise to his dying father to give up his fighting ways, he will be faced with a new challenge in the arrival of the knife-throwing master Tien Feng (FIST OF FURY) and his gang. With action from the legendary Yuen Woo-Ping (MATRIX, CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON) and a cameo from a young Jackie Chan and others, this basher is the epitome of the Punch and Block violence that began a long trend within Martial Arts cinema. USA aka title: FURY OF THE BLACK BELT. This set features a NEW 4k Transfer from a 35mm inter-positive print.

    THE PRODIGAL BOXER (1972) is an early take on the legend of martial artist Fong Sai-Yuk (later to be portrayed by the likes of Jet Li and Alexander Fu-Sheng), here played by Mang Fei. Once Fong Inadvertently kills a student of the rival school run by Iron Hand Tan (Kurata Yasuaki), this action leads to a series of near death confrontations between the men concluding in a tournament battle of the ages. Choreographed by Shaw Brothers' Lau Kar-Wing (the brother of the great Gordon Liu and Lau Kar-Leung) this film represents the brawling style of the time as well as the genesis of the more stylistic "Shapes" trend of martial arts action that would soon follow. This set features a NEW 4k Transfer from a 35mm negative.

    Bonus Features include an audio Commentary on THE PRODIGAL BOXER with actor/director Michael Worth and Clones Cast/Cinema Bushido host Matthew Whittaker, an interview with Michael Worth and Action Choreographer John Kreng, the original Theatrical Trailers to both films, and Essays on the Basher genre within Kung Fu Cinema History.
