Storyline

During the Song dynasty, after the upright prefect Bao Zheng executed Pang Yu for embezzlement, the grand tutor Pang Ji sent assassins to avenge his son's death. A chivalrous man, Zhan Zhao the "Southern Hero", saved Bao and was conferred the title "King Cat" by the emperor. This title invoked the jealousy and anger of Bai Yutang the "Brocade-Coated Rat" - as rats were considered cat food - who went to the capital Kaifeng (also known as Bianjing) to challenge Zhan.

Game of Cat and mice...
23 April 2013 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

When official Bao (who, for some reason, appears to be wearing blackface) beheads the Prince for conduct unbecoming, it irks the prince's followers.They dispatch a squad of assassins, who are cut down by Zhan Zhou. At one point, he rescues a princess by literally walking up the side of a wall. Bao dubs him KING CAT, but Zhan doesn't particularly want the title: he realizes it'll just bring him trouble. He's right and, in short order, three maids are raped and murdered. Bai, one of the Five Mice, is accused and Zhan is dispatched to bring him in. Meanwhile, Hua (Lo Lieh), "the variegated Butterfly" (I kid you not), who is the real culprit, decides to kidnap and rape the Princess. Zhan confronts Bai, realizes that he's innocent (of the rapes and murders, but guilty of stealing a jade stove, which he eventually returns) and KING CAT builds to an all-out action finale. One of the better early kung fu movies.
