I didn't know what to expect from this film, but I found it to be a passable entry into Sammo's recent catalog. It's quite family friendly, it could be compared to The Karate Kid both in plot and content. Sammo plays a Kung Fu master who years ago left a wife and son in Hong Kong and retreated to a country village, spending his time mastering Tai Chi with the villagers. The son is infatuated with a rich popular girl; his friendship with her leads him to be challenged by her obnoxious Karate Champion boyfriend. So he travels to the village to find his father, and ends up learning Tai Chi. I sought out this movie as I read that Leung Kar Yan (the mighty "Beardy") was in it, he plays a Karate Master who has challenged Sammo. He also happens to be the young obnoxious Karate Champion's Sensei, funny that, eh! He doesn't have much screen time, and his fight with Sammo is all too short but it was great to see him in action again. Also look out for the always great Richard Ng providing laughs.
