Not as good as I remembered it

Recently re-released in the UK under the US title, "Method Man", FEARLESS YOUNG BOXER is a prime example of old school kung fu that I saw years ago on VHS video. It has the standard plot of a wandering assassin Wa Pa Fong (Ca Sa Fa) who's searching for the surviving members of a rival kung fu school. The father of hero Shao Lung (Peter Chen) is killed in the opening sequence of the movie, but manages to pass on the gold emblem of the school to his son. Much confusion then arises when pickpocket "Stumpy" swipes the emblem and is seen by Wa Pa Fong.

The middle section of the film gets bogged down is some pretty broad 'comedy" routines that include a chubby guy disco dancing, but it's back to solid action in the final duel between Ca Sa Fa and Peter Chen. Ca Sa Fa in particular is a superb martial artist and offered a pretty good turn in the earlier Sammo Hung movie WARRIORS TWO.

Worth a look for the skills of Ca Sa Fa, but if possible avoid the terrible UK DVD which is the dubbed version.
