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.

Not bad.....yet not that good
21 December 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I found this movie hard to follow, i could not determine who the main character was, was it the bruce lee look alike? or the new stranger in town, or is it the villains? .. i don't know Overall the kung fu wasn't that bad, yet wasn't that good either, there were a few flaws with the camera work and the fight scenes amongst other things.

Its a good surprise seeing Bolo Yeung in this film if only for a short cameo and the Bruce lee lookalike looked REALLY good.... looks/body/face and mannerisms...

The film had some funny parts towards the end with the main boss and the stereo type fat guy. I came away feeling sad that a Bruce lee Look a like seemed out of place and only put in to sell more tickets and that the story was hard to follow and the ending seemed a little anti-climatic. Besides that... it was pretty Average.
