Storyline

Jackie Chan is a youngster, living in a remote village with his grandfather who teaches him Kung-Fu. He keeps getting into fights, even though his grandfather warns him not to show their Kung-Fu to others. Jackie, though, is tempted by some thugs he beat up to act as the master of a Kung-Fu school. This school's name apparently spreads far, as an old enemy of Jackie's grandfather shows up and attacks him. Jackie goes on training with the help of another member of the old gang, until he can eventually get revenge. Written by Yaron <yaron@starlight.trendline.co.il>

High quality kung fu fightings
3 March 2003 | by (Germany, Berlin) – See all my reviews

This film is a ´must´ for all fans of high quality kung fu fightings. It represents the variety of of kung fu more than all other films with Jackie Chan. The story comes fairly simple and is mainly focused on the best fighting action scenes in addition to the legendary scenes with bruce lee.
