King of Kickboxers: The trend that followed the Ninja wave may not sound as exciting, but this cut-n-paste number is mostly made up of Director/Star Panna Rittikrai’s (BORN TO FIGHT) jaw-dropping action film THAI POLICE STORY.
ABOUT THE TRANSFERS:
Eagle Claw Classics series is dedicated to preserving and celebrating widely available, but little respected, martial arts cinema. The films on these discs are presented in standard definition and have not been remastered, but efforts have been made to present them in the most visually pleasing manner using the available elements.
