Storyline

A brother and sister escape from Japanese-occupied Shanghai to Japanese-occupied Taiwan, to stay with their grandfather who runs a Kung-Fu school there. However, the master of a Japanese Kung- Fu school in Taiwan has designs on bringing all other schools on the island under his domination, and part of his plan involves the murder of the siblings' grandfather. Undaunted, the brother and sister reestablish their grandfather's school, leading to a final confrontation with the Japanese Kung Fu master. Jackie Chan plays a young thief who at first does not want to learn Kung-Fu, but finally realizes that he can no longer stand by and let the Japanese trample the rights of the Chinese people. He proves extremely adept at the martial arts, and carries the fight to its final conclusion. Written by Christopher E. Meadows <cmeadows@nyx.cs.du.edu>

Oh, so Great !
29 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is not made by the Golden Harvest, but by a company called Lo Wei Motion Picture Company Limited. Lo Wei is the director who directed the original "Fist of Fury". A director who purportedly didn't get along so well with Bruce Lee, because he was listening to horse races while he was directing. He's the director in this movie as well.

Good of this movie is the very beautiful Nora Miao, and young Jacky Chan. There's more comedic touch in this movie compared to the intense Bruce Lee's version. Jacky Chan is not the almighty kung fu expert, but more of an average good guy.

Story is similar to the original Fist of Fury. Japanese karate school is harassing the Chinese kung fu school. At one point, grand master dies from heart attack caused by the Japanese. From that point on, everyone at the Jing Wu school unite to defeat the Japanese, with similar result in the end.

This movie out does the original Fist of Fury. Production is better, and the story is exciting. It's one great kung fu movie, and definitely makes it to the A list.
