Storyline

Huang Fei-Hung, famous Chinese boxer, teaches his martial arts at Pao Chih Lin Institute, in Canton. Gordon is a European businessman, dealing in import and export, who's looking for a good bodyguard - for which he organizes a martial arts tournament. Mai Ken does not follow the advice of Huang, and finds himself up against a thug, Lin Tien-Tao, who wounds him in their match at the tournament. Li Tien-Tao and Teng-Hsi plan to rob Gordon's valuable jade collection that he is going to send by ship to Hong Kong, down the river from Canton. Li highjacks the ship and Gordon and his faithful men are dominated by Li's gang. Li takes the jade, but Huang Fei-Hung, who wishes to avenge the treacherous death of his friend Mai Ken, is waiting for him in the river's bank. Written by Artemis-9

Shaw Brothers' take on the Wong Fei-hung phenomenon
31 May 2010 | by (Alabama) – See all my reviews

Minor but well-mounted Shaw Brothers production based on the exploits of Wong Fei-hung, the turn-of-the-century kung-fu instructor/acupuncturist/Cantonese folk hero. (Liu Chia-liang later directed two Shaw films--"Challenge of the Masters" and "Martial Club"--with the young Wong Fei-hung as the central character, but "The Master of Kung-Fu" is about Wong as an adult.) Here he's played by Hong Kong's greatest character actor, Ku Feng (you've seen him in everything from "The One-Armed Swordsman" to "The Heroic Ones" to "Bruce Le's Greatest Revenge"), and this role gives Ku the relatively rare opportunity to show off his considerable fighting skills--both barehanded and with a three-sectional staff. The plot revolves around stolen jade ornaments and an attempt to frame Wong Fei-hung for the murder of a fellow kung-fu teacher, a hot-tempered man who had argued with Wong. Beautiful attention to period detail and, of course, great fight choreography by Yuan Hsiang-jen and Yuen Woo-ping--but you shouldn't expect a lot of bloodshed, since Wong strove to avoid killing or seriously injuring his opponents! A compilation of fight scenes from "The Master of Kung-Fu" is available on YouTube.
