Dragon Inn (1967)

King Hu directs Lingfeng Shangguan, Chun Shih and Ying Bai in this kung-fu classic, where a death squad amass at a deserted inn but a group of unlikely rebels interrupt their plans.

Great to look at but a bit too static and drawn out in its plotting. The final eunuch battle feels a little unfair seeing as its one dickless bad guy against four heroes we’ve seen take on armies by their lonesome in the build-up.
