Jaguar Wong: the man, the myth, the NINJA SUPREMACY!!
This truly is the greatest nugget of cinematic manna to emanate from the dream factory that is (or was) the IFD stable. Godfrey Ho and Joseph Lai - masters of cinema, verily, mightier than that saccharine Spielberg - sure knew how to knock out these gems.
This opus in particular is a marvel. Check out the genius of ninja master Richard Harrison, with his Garfield phone, his penchant for shurikening helpless crabs, and his communiques from the Ninja Empire received via clockwork robot. At this point, my brain melted to mush.
However, the kicking skills of Hwang Jang Lee, and the undiluted charisma of Jaguar Wong - coolest man in kung fu film history - kept me riveted to the screen like a rabbit in the headlights. As to whether our hero ever got to find Michiko's restaurant is unclear: I found it hard to see through the tears of hysterical laughter. Highly recommended for an evening of drunken ninja fun. Oh, and drunken crabs, of course.
