SHATTER (call him mr. shatter; duo ming ci i ke) (1974 HONG KONG U.K.) D/P: MICHAEL CARRERAS D: MONTE HELLMAN (uncredited) W: DON HOUGHTON P: VEE KING SHAW
Stuart Whitman is an assassin for hire who's been misled and used, ending up trying to stay alive in Hong Kong. There are no great shakes, but this co-production (between Shaw and Hammer, like THE LEGEND OF THE 7 GOLDEN VAMPIRES) is very good and has an interesting cast. Ti Lung, Lily Li Li Li, Peter Cushing, Lee Hoi Sang, Fung Hak On, Lau Kar Wing, Hsu Hsia, Yen Shi Kwan and Anton Diffring. And the theme tune (by David Lindup) is pretty cool. Hellman was fired midway through filming.
