John Woo double bill as Eureka announce June release for Last Hurrah for Chivalry and Hand of Death on Blu-ray

Eureka have announced a Blu-ray release for Last Hurrah for Chivalry and Hand of Death in a two film set on 24th June. The first 2,000 copies will be shipped with a limited edition collectors booklet.

In Last Hurrah for Chivalry, two killers (Pai Wei and Damian Lau) agree to help a man exact vengeance upon a kung fu master. Woo’s first cinematic masterpiece, Last Hurrah for Chivalry is a dark and violent revenge film, featuring lightning fast swordplay and stylish cinematography.

In Hand of Death, a young Shaolin monk must train to defeat a dangerous Manchu warlord (James Tien) who is intent on wiping out the Shaolin once and for all. Featuring early performances from Jackie Chan and Sammo Hung (both also handled the film’s stunts, along with third “brother” Yuen Biao), Hand of Death is an exquisitely stylish example of old school kung fu filmmaking.
