Wits to Wits/ Con Man & the Kung fu kid
3 September 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Whichever title this film goes under, if you're an old-school chop-sockey fan...you've got to see it! An intelligent 'Basher' from the days when the protagonists would start fighting for no apparent reason. Henry Yu Young is a sharp travelling con-man adept at mah-jong (cheating) and Kung fu who runs into womanising petty thief Wu Ma. They conspire to steal a bullion shipment from a crooked banker and under the nose of local crime boss Shek Kin (of Enter the Dragon fame). What follows is an amusing little film that's high on action and laughs courtesy of Director Wu Ma and choreographer Yuen Woo Ping. Note: the two versions (1:From China with Death/2:Duel of Dragons) available on DVD in the U.S. are crap quality (2 is also cut for nudity, mild sexual laughs).
