Cheuk is a mainland security officer who's thrown into a race against the clock when he discovers a man is holding an entire school hostage in exchange for his adopted son, so it's up to Cheuk to use his formidable martial arts skills to retrieve the boy and bring him back before the man decides to kill everyone.

Man Cheuk Chiu is an excellent martial artist! Only in this movie he doesn't get to show it! The movie is fast paced and full of action! But somehow it is just average! The great cast can't hide the fact that this movie is bad! If you are not used to HK action flicks this movie could impress you! For the fan it is very disappointing! Man Cheuk Chiu was great in "The Blade"! There he really got to display his skills! In "Fist Power" it could have been anybody! Since the martial arts were not that special! If you can use these skilled fighters why not let them show what they can do! We want to be impressed and entertained! "Fist Power" fails in that department! It was a mystery to me what Anthony Wong was doing! It seems to me that he was used to attract viewers! Avoid this movie and go see "The Blade" (a fantastic martial arts movie with Man Cheuk Chiu)!
