Above average martial arts comedy from the golden age of martial arts movies
25 July 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The new kung fu school opens and welcomes all challengers as the candle burns. Unfortunately, Norman Chhu arrives for a challenge. He easily defeats the students and the teacher. He announces he is just looking for one man so he can prove he is the best fighter.

Next we cut to the casino where David Chiang loses the game but wins the fight. Then he goes to the kung fu school that is now closing and learns about Norman. He encounters Norman at the bank and notices his wealth. They fight briefly at the casino to a respectful draw. Lily is a hooker at the casino and is romantically involved with a former bandit chief. She offers David money to kill Norman.

My copy is widescreen and of good enough resolution for a modern high definition television. It is English dubbed but there are a few times the dubbing drops. The end fight is top notch. David Chiang does most of his moves except the acrobatics. Though not a martial artist at the start of his acting career he has had many years to practice and is as good as the real deal now, except for the acrobatics. Near the end there was a move of his I watched over and over. He does a forward flip. This is a very simple move for the average stunt man but something most difficult for anyone else. There are three cuts in the film sequence but it is definitely him in every cut.

Overall this martial arts comedy rates as above average for the year and genre and I recommend it for all fans.
