THE EIGHT DIAGRAM POLE FIGHTER is a martial arts drama, from 1984, in which two of seven sons from a prestigious military family survive an ambush and seek revenge on their assailants.

Violence

Scenes of strong violence include stabbings with bladed weapons and arrows, as well as a comic but bloody sequence in which people's teeth are pulled out on clubs and, in one case, embedded into a man's head. There's also a sequence in which a man burns large holes into his own head using hot, sharpened sticks, as part of a spiritual ritual.

There is mild bad language ('bastard').
