Trivia

In the scene where Ah So, Leung Fu and Mass Tar Wong attack the temple, Mass Tar Wong attacks a perverted monk on behalf of Wong Fei-Hung, Miss Nine and Beggar So. When asked by the perverted monk who Beggar So is, Mass Tar Wong says he doesn't know. Beggar So was originally one of the Ten Tigers of Canton along with Wong Kei-Ying and he is often associated with the Chinese fighting form "Drunken Boxing". See more »

Quotes

So: [crying because Wong has to leave] Master, I'm so sorry...
Wong Fei-hung: You're a man. Stop crying!
So: [nods to Mass Tar Wong] He's crying too.
Wong Fei-hung: [looks at Mass Tar Wong, who is crying comically] He's different. He's not a man.

Wong Fei Hung with a funny twist.
11 November 2014 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

Jet Li reprises his role as martial arts legend Wong Fei-Hung in this movie that is not part of the original series featuring Li, but a film that gives a comedic twist to the story where Fei-Hung stumbles upon a kidnapping scheme after unknowingly opening a martial arts school next to a brothel.

Like previous Fei-Hung movies, this film has plenty of martial arts action and breathtaking battles, including the fight between the lion dancers and the giant human-controlled centipede. While Jet Li stays true to form as the serious, wise and powerful Wong Fei-Hung, this film also has a good dose of humor, courtesy of actor Chan Pak-Cheung, who plays pimp-turned martial arts wannabe Mass Tar Cheung, and actress Kingdom Yuen, who plays the brothel madam. A host of other all-star actors can be seen included Sharla Cheung, Anita Yuen, Dicky Cheng, Gordon Liu and members of Sammo Hung/Jackie Chan's stunt team - all giving us some top-notch acting performances.

The plot is pretty solid and gains momentum as the movie progresses, with a captivating story and classic good guy vs. bad guy elements. Just about everything is thrown in this movie - action, adventure, drama (which the story could use a little more of), comedy and period costumes/settings - all resulting in pure entertainment.

Grade B+
