Stephen Chow, Comedian: Legend of the Dragon.
24 August 2005 | by (Sacramento, CA) – See all my reviews

Legend of the Dragon (1990) was one of Stephen Chow's first star vehicles. Whilst working for Danny Lee's Magnum Productions, he noticed that Chow was more of a comedian than an action star. After a couple of attempts to make him into an action star, he wisely made this comedy and centered it around his amazing comedic timing and abilities.

Chow stars as a son of an Kung-Fu acrobat/ performer. His father portrays himself as a Bruce Lee stunt double and student of the infamous martial artist (Yuen Wah who was all of those things in real life). But Chow's not a very skilled martial artist. He has another talent that he's exceptional at, snooker. Teresa Mo co-stars as his childhood friend who has developed a crush for Chow over the years. A shady crime figure witnesses Chow's talent for snooker and wants to use him. Will Chow leave his community and head for the big city? How will his father react to him wanting to leave the family business? Will Mo express her true feelings for Chow? To find out you'll just have to find a copy of LEGEND OF THE DRAGON. Even Bruce Lee would have been pleased. Watch out for British snooker legend Jimmy White and Amy Yip.

Highly recommended.
