During the Japanese occupation, Little Tiger, an honest cook in Shanghai, takes exception of two Chinese that pass from insult to sexual harassment against a beautiful and modest girl servant. During the fight, the pair of molesters receive help from a number of colleagues from the same martial arts school - who are in support of the Japanese - while Little Tiger is helped by young men from his own school. A major fight develops, and the cook accidentally kills one of the thugs. The Police comes to arrest Little Tiger and to close down his school, but they resist and the cook escapes. Little Tiger is now a fugitive, living in disguise. When a duel between the two rival schools is arranged in an open-air site, Little Tiger is watching disguised as an old man, but he can't resist. He takes off his false beard, declares his name, and demands to join in the competition - beating up all competitors. Written by Artemis-9

genre fans will love this one!
22 March 2004 | by (winnipeg, mb, canada) – See all my reviews

The video version available in the US doesn't do it justice, but this is actually a pretty enjoyable kung fu film. Tons of lengthy fights, all sorts of weapons and even a couple of "special techniques"! One of the heroes fights with a three section staff (you remember it as the weapon Gordon Liu invented in Master Killer) which is in my opinion a totally underused weapon in most martial arts films, and there is tons of great, over the top swordfights!

Fairly standard revenge plot, but still warrants multiple viewings at my place for the last couple of years, this movie fits it along the lines of other Joespeh Kuo films like "Shaolin Temple Strikes Back" however the ending is a bit of a let down but there's some interesting camera techniques that probably influenced films like "Ninja Hunter".

It'd be nice to see a widescreen version on dvd...
