Storyline

Prince Wang is the 11th prince of Manchuria and an excellent martial artist, but prefers not to draw attention to himself and keeps a low profile, posing as a merchant who deals in wine, antiques and paintings. He has a run-in with Ho Jen, a simple thief who makes a living by stealing and spending loot wherever he can. The Prince takes a liking to the thief and enlists him to be his bodyguard, something Ho takes to very reluctantly at first. But when a conspiracy unfolds and the Prince is targeted for assassination, Ho must undertake a serious training regime to protect his master. Written by Shaw

Gotta love the moustache!
14 July 2002 | by (Queens, NY) – See all my reviews

Funny kung fu comedy with Gordon Liu as a lover of fine antiques, good wine, and is hiding a secret. He wants to show Dirty Ho (Yue Wong) the error of his ways. I have to say, the antagonism between the two is great in the beginning and I enjoyed scenes with the two of them together. Good chemistry.

Gordon Liu has some really weird, but very cool to watch, fight scenes which include wine cups and antique vases!! His fight with Johnny Wang is definitely worth watching. Towards the end, it's all action and the double attacks of Liu and Wong work well together. So for some laughs and lots of kicks, watch this one! And Gordon with a moustache, what more could you want??
