Good 70's kung fu movie.

Crystal Fist is easily the best movie in which Billy Chong stars, there is a lot of fights and most of them are entertaining. Simon Yuen (The father of Yuen Woo-Ping) also stars in this movie with the same kind of role he had in Drunken Master. Note that corey yuen(My father is a hero, Fong Sai Yuk, X-men, Romeo must die) began his career with this movie as a fight coordinator! Overall good movie worth a watch!..........................7,6/10
