Basic plot revolves around a young Beggar Su getting addicted to opium and manipulated by a scheming imperial prince to fight against WFH and assassinate a righteous general. As expected, Beggar Su repents and gangs up with WFH against the prince in a climactic battle. Guess who you have helping the prince, the White Lotus sect of course... Written by Anonymous

Goofs

The 35mm style of camera that Princess Yi Teh-Tai uses in one scene was not introduced until the late-1930s/early-1940s, well after the real Wong Fei-Hung's death in 1924. See more »

Awesome!!! I can't believe people haven't seen this!!!
29 August 2004 | by See all my reviews

What can I say? Donnie Yen has made a fan out of me. Yes, he was in Iron Monkey. This movie started out with the fight scenes being mediocre and all of a sudden the film reeled off one killer fight scene after another. This movie is a classic and any Kung Fu fan should see this. I was only the 39th person to vote on this. That surprised me because this movie is awesome. Musa the Warrior was a killer movie as well. I look for top quality fighting and this movie does the trick. Oh yeah, the plot of the movie is about stopping the distribution of Opium. My brother rented this at Blockbuster and I was skeptical until I saw Donnie Yen's name. I give this movie a 10/10 as far as Kung Fu is concerned!!!!

The only meat a priest could eat on Sunday was Nun!!!
