Storyline

Wah Sang was a boxing champion seven years ago. He now works at a garage and cares for his seven-year-old son Henry. They live a small apartment and Wah spends much of his time gambling and drinking. Henry wants Wah, whom he addresses by that name him to return to boxing, but Wah is hesitant because he suffered a brain injury. Henry is a go-kart racer, and at the track, Susan sees her friend Jenny, whose son is also in the race, being rude to him, so she approaches him and bets him dinner if he can win the race. Henry tries to pass Jenny's son in a curve and runs into the grass. When his crew come to aid him, she sees Wah, her ex-husband, there, and confronts him, demanding to know if Henry is their son.

Not your typical Yuen Biao performance.
18 August 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

If you are a Yuen Biao fan, this movie is worth the watch. It was a made for TV movie, so right away you will notice the production values are lower then usual. It kind of has a soap opera feel(minus the lame story's and dialogue).

Its a great little story about a washed up boxer, who also happens to be a dead beat father with a gambling problem. All that aside, he has a son who thinks the world of him, and never gives up hope that his father will once again be the best boxer in the world.

There is little to no action, and a complete lack of martial arts. But you know what, thats okay. The acting is also a hit and miss, But Yuen Biao and the young actor playing his son are excellent. And that's all that matters.

Its not perfect. But its different, and thats good.

So check it out!
