Simon Yuen nears the finish line
24 December 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

David Chiang is the only honest policeman in town. He manages to arrest the snake fist expert bad guy thanks to the help of a chimpanzee and a German shepherd dog who sacrificed his (screen) life. It becomes more of a problem to keep the criminal in custody. Though David has the lead the entire Yuen clan populates the rest of this movie. The plot is thin as is the case in most movies of this genre yet the movie manages to get the most out of it. The characters are also typically one dimensional but it works in this production.

Simon Yuen as usual steals the show. Here he is near the end of both his career and his life. He began as a trained Peking opera performer and joined Kwan Tak-Hing in the first of many movies about Wong Fei-Hung. Most famous in his drunken beggar role here he is neither drunken nor a beggar just an old guy but with similar style of stumbling kung fu.

Any fan of this genre has probably viewed every movie Simon Yuen has appeared in so my recommendation is meaningless. I rate it just average for the year and genre.
