FEARLESS MASTER, aka FEARLESS HYENA 3, is one of the most blatant rip-offs I've yet to watch. It has nothing to do with FEARLESS HYENA or indeed its sequel, and it features a performer by the name of Jackie Chen, who was completely new to me. I'm familiar with Bruceploitation movies, but had never heard of Jackieploitation before! The story is some misguided, muddled piece of fluff about an upstanding young fighter battling against a gang of cruel thugs - you know the routine. The hero is one Jackie Chen, who looks like Jackie Chan and has exactly the same haircut, although he's noticeably older. There's an old beggar type master who puts Jackie through his paces with some fun training sequences, but most of this film is about the action.
There's plenty of it, but the choreography is only average, unfortunately. It's fun to watch but lacks the finesse of a Yuen Woo-ping choreographed movie, although of course you could do a lot worse. One high point is Bolo Yeung's presence as one of the thugs; wearing an orange jump suit, he looks like an escapee from Guantanamo Bay! I could also swear I saw Tsui Hark in a cameo although I might have been mistaken. FEARLESS MASTER also contains a random insert of a snake vs. mongoose fight which I'm pretty sure was stolen from a different movie.
