Ok. So you’ve got a passing interest in martial arts cinema. You’ve got a couple of Bruce Lee DVDs and you’ve just discovered Jackie Chan’s 1980’s work. It’s all going quite well, in a few months you will be tucking into Jet Li’s Fist of Legend and probably some of Sammo’s finest works (Warriors Two, The Victim).

However, one thing keeps nagging away at you. Who or what are the Shaw Brothers? You keep hearing people ramble on about them on various online forums and their logos seem to be all over the place (including Tarantino’s Kill Bill).

Well, if this is a question burning inside you, then you have come to the right place. Here at Hong Kong Cinema, we have tried to pull together an insightful and informative guide into the world of the Shaw Brothers for both the uninitiated disciple and those looking to extend their basic knowledge.

It is fair to say that the Shaw Brothers have been the most significant film production company in the history of Hong Kong Cinema, with an influence extending far into international cinema. Over the last nine decades, the Shaw’s have amassed a collection of over 800 titles, with countless awards and international recognition.

They gave openings to some of Hong Kong’s best loved stars (Jimmy Wang Yu, Lo Lieh, Ti Lung, David Chiang, Gordon Liu, Alexander Fu Sheng and Cheng Pei Pei), but also those behind the camera (Chang Cheh, Lau Kar Leung, John Woo and Chor Yuen). Not only were they breaking box office records both domestically and abroad, but they also defined a number of genres that are now considered the very essence of Hong Kong cinema.
