Floats like a butterfly and punches like a goose?
29 August 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Shaolin martial arts is noted for copying animal styles of combat. Thanks to kung fu movies pretty much every animal in the world has been made into a kung fu style. Here we have, obviously, the common goose. Anyone who has spent time with real geese knows they are nasty, territorial, attack unprovoked, and cover the ground they walk in the stinkiest and slimiest of droppings. Charles Heung has become a goose boxer because his business was selling roast goose but refusing to service a horny old lady (Chan Lap-Ban who acted in an amazing total of 411 movies from 1949 to 1990 thereby proving you can be ugly and in a lot of movies too) has sent him on the road to adventure. Tin Ching drops into the story unexpectedly. He starred in one of the earliest martial arts comedies that was actually funny, "Mad Mad Mad Sword." He fights Cheung Sin-Ming who had a "short" career (get it – short?) topped off in 1983's "Winners and Sinners". Tin Ching's business plan for his kung fu school is worse than his kung fu. He joins with Charles to try to get more students. Lee Hoi Sang, Philip Ko Fei, and Charles Hung top the bill of this kung fu comedy. The names alone guarantee the action is real solid and there is enough of a plot to tie it together coherently. The copy was English dubbed and the voice overs can sometimes ruin the entire movie. No problem with that here, they are bad but not bad enough to pull down the whole movie. The movie has the all the expected standards: the villains are over the top, the heroes are learning weird new styles and have training sequences, the fights are good and plenty, and the good guys are likable. For kung fu movie fans only of course, who else would be reading this? I give it an above average 7 rating.
