Hong Kong Legend's Ultra-bit special editions feature superb remasters of some of the lesser-known greats of seventies Hong Kong cinema. A number of these features have been available through other companies in the past, but invariably have been hampered with a badly degraded picture and a crackly, mono dub, so it's great to be able to now watch these films in a better condition than they would have been for their initial theatrical release. Shaolin Wooden Men is the latest release deserving of the spit-and-polish treatment.
After witnessing his father's murder at the hands of a masked assassin, Jackie trains at a Shaolin temple to avenge the death of his father. But he doesn't realize that he's training in the lair of the man he seeks to kill!
Among the many disciples in the Shaolin Temple, Little Mute, nicknamed because he does not speak, is the favorite of many Shaolin Masters because of his dedication to the martial arts. By chance, Little Mute learns Kung Fu from Fatyu, without knowing that his is one of the great Masters of the Temple. Little Mute learns, however, that the man he so admires is also his father's killer. Torn by his anguish, he vows to avenge his father's death, and after vanquishing Fatyu, finds peace as a monk in the Temple

Check out some of Jackies earliest work. Some are pretty critical of this film but i thought it was pretty cool - see for yourself.
I have made a few dvdrips (700MB) of these movies but still prefer to leave as DVD so everyone can enjoy the 5.1 surround and special disc features. I have still managed to compress the DVD itself quite alot to keep the download time lower. But... If anyone can't be arsed downloading the full dvd's, PM me and i'll consider putting the rips up as well (more work involved on my behalf) :(
