Or... Shaolin Kids in Hong Kong. Starring Choi Yue, Gordon Liu Chia-Hui, Anita Lee Yuen-Wa, Lee Hiu-Tung, Phillip Kwok Chun-Fung, Johnny Wang Lung-Wei and Gabriel Wong Yat-San.
This movie starts in Shaolin Temple where the Master (Gordon Liu) has a task of trying to train kids into shaolin monks. Two of his youngest students try to escape their master's punishment, so decide that there's a better world out there and go out to seek their fate in Hong Kong.
The Master follows them but must face his own ignorance of the outside world. The two boys are taken in by a young woman named Money (Anita Lee) and find themselves in trouble over a belt of counterfeit money belonging to a local drug boss (Lung Wei). Only our Master can save the day and the kids.
This is a cheap movie that seems to be made to appeal to kids, but there is some casting that makes you wonder. Besides the overacting and goofy sound effects I was wanting more and who wouldn't with that cast.
Of coarse, there's Gordon's fight in one section with Philip Kwok, the end fight with villain Lung Wei is good and the Shaolin Kids are also pretty good even with weapons.
It's hard to grade a film like this (as it seems as it was meant for kids) but that doesn't mean it can't be good. Some will like it and some will hate it.
