Better Than Average Kung Fu Flick

In Bangkok, Kwangtung boxer Wong Fei-hung, the Skyhawk, rescues Hsiao Shih-tzu, a young man who fights off five thugs only to be wounded himself. The Skyhawk attends to his wound at Chu Kuei's home, but the devious Ku Chung-wu plots to monopolize the porter service at the pier.

At this point in Kwan Tak-Hing's career, he had been playing the martial arts hero since 1949 and is a bit old now to perform. As others have pointed out, though, his students (Carter Wong and Sammo Hung) do a good job in fulfilling the needs of the action-hungry audience. Among the four films on Shout! Factory's martial arts set, this is considered the strongest entry.

The character of Wong Fei-hung would later be portrayed by both Jackie Chan and Jet Li, making him a pop culture icon in Chinese cinema for over fifty years.
