Trivia

The working title "Tiger on the Beat 3" was a ruse by the Production company Cinema City to prevent another company from producing a sequel to their Tiger on Beat (1988)/Tiger on the Beat series, starring Conan Lee, the star of the previous two titles. After forcing the rival company to abandon the project, Cinema City retitled this movie to Skinny Tiger, Fatty Dragon - with no link to the earlier series. See more »

Violence against Women
16 July 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I would have rated this higher as Sammo and Karl make a good team and the fighting is awesome but none of the other reviews note the high level of violence against women (and the two lady-boy's dressed as women) in this film which made me uneasy. For whatever reason, I have never seen it explained, Sammo does an excellent job of imitating Bruce Lee including use of Nunchaku's. There are several very funny, classic scenes such as gradually destroying Tak's Mercedes car and wrecking the Commissioner's wedding. Some of the other humour doesn't work so well. Sammo Hung and Karl Mak are obviously relaxed and comfortable in one anothers company and this comes through well. My Homg Kong Legends DVD copy has some good extras.
