Gordon Liu is one of the best known Shaw Brothers stars, having been in the classics “36th Chamber of Shaolin” and “Eight Diagram Pole Fighter” to name but two, as well as featuring in fervent fanboy Tarantino’s recent martial arts love letter “Kill Bill”. “Godfather of Canton” was directed by Kuei Chih hung, best known for the sleazy horror films which he made for the Shaw Brothers, including “Hex” and the infamous “The Killer Snakes”. “Canton” was originally released by the studio back in 1982, and may come as somewhat of a shock to fans used to seeing the shaven-headed Liu playing a righteous Shaolin upstart, as the film sees him taking on a thoroughly immoral role as a gangster who rises through the ranks of the underworld thanks to double crossing and bloody ruthlessness.

In “Godfather of Canton”, Gordon Liu plays Hai, a coolie who saves the life of a police envoy investigating corruption in the force, and is offered a job at the station as a result. After this turns out to be little more than sweeping floors and taking abuse from his co-workers, Hai takes matters into his own hands and starts accepting bribes from local criminals. Using treachery and cunning, Hai gradually worms his way into the pay of the local gangs, gaining influence and respect, before quitting the police altogether to become a fully fledged underworld boss.

  1. A nude scene of a woman is missing in this version. The scene can be seen only in the original trailer, which is included on the HK DVD.
