Kung fu comedy as good as it gets
2 September 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Where's the sequel? Henry Yu Yung and Wu Ma team up (and I believe one of the Yuen brothers is the fight choreographer) and create a kung fu buddy comedy that was ahead of its time for 1974. It starts with Wu Ma escaping from his love nest butt-naked and chased by Chinese babes. That's how you grab the audience's attention! Though the two are thrown together by circumstances there is still all that wonderful conflict. This script was even written right. The fight choreography is superb. It is stylish and concise when it needs to be, arms flailing and awkward, and has great comedic sequences. I loved every minute of this movie and it left me wishing for a sequel or two but that never happened. How good was it? Sek Kin was upstaged and that never happens. I rate it 9 out of 10.
