Storyline

When two acrobats are fired for fighting with punks in the audience, they go to live with an aunt who's being pressured to sell her house for a real estate development. The developer's nasty son, Lee Fu, decides to muscle the sale, and soon he's at war with the acrobats, plus their unlikely ally, an American named John who used to be Lee Fu's friend. The acrobats open a kung fu school, the scene of several battles with Lee Fu's thugs. A fight to the death, jail time, auntie's surprise decision, a budding acting career, a possessive girlfriend, a debilitating injury, a friendship that needs recalibrating, and Lee Fu's avenger are all in the mix before the end.

One-half 3 Stooges one-half 3 Musketeers
12 April 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Familiar Martial arts movie of it's time with a lot of heart. During the time of the late 70's there was an urgency to cast an actor who looks like Bruce Lee in order to draw theatre crowds. Not only does this film have a character who looks like Bruce Lee but, fight scenes which seem real even though there are just a few flying kicks or slow motion sequences. The strength of this film is that it is entertaining, simple, and fun. Not only do You know know who the bad guys are but, You want the good guys to win out in this film.
