Who is A Man Called Tiger?

Eureka Entertainment to release A MAN CALLED TIGER, the martial arts extravaganza directed by Lo Wei and starring Jimmy Wang Yu. Presented on Blu-ray from a brand new 2K restoration. Available from 26 August 2024 for the first time ever in the UK, and from 27 August 2024 in North America (Blu-ray debut), as part of the Eureka Classics range.

Starring Jimmy Wang Yu (The One-Armed Swordsman) and directed by Lo Wei, the man behind the smash-hit Bruce Lee vehicles The Big Boss and Fist of Fury, A Man Called Tiger is a martial arts extravaganza released at the height of an international kung fu craze.

Chin Fu is a formidable martial artist who suspects his father’s apparent suicide was actually a cold-blooded murder. His desire for answers – and revenge – leads him to Japan, where he becomes entangled with the yakuza. With the aid of his fellow countryman Liu Han-ming and a nightclub hostess, Chin Fu sets out to infiltrate Tokyo’s underworld, expose a criminal conspiracy, and uncover his father’s true fate by any means necessary.

Long rumoured to have been planned as the third collaboration between Lo Wei and Bruce Lee before Lee made his directorial debut with The Way of the Dragon, A Man Called Tiger instead became a vehicle for another martial arts superstar in Jimmy Wang Yu. Eureka Classics is proud to present the film for the first ever on Blu-ray from a brand new 2K restoration.
