Storyline

Weedy office worker Cheung is sent to a remote village to secure property rights for his real estate company. Two martial artists run the village's teahouse, which was once the kung-fu school of their teacher Master Law. Law is in fact lying unconscious upstairs in a three decades-long coma, but he awakes when gym boss and local landlord Pong attempts to secure the teahouse for redevelopment. Law mistakes Cheung for a former student and starts training him in preparation for a martial-arts tournament at Pong's gym that will decide all their fates. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

Originally conceived as being about a a musical group in the 1960s and 1970s. One member suffers a stroke and begins to realize he has not done anything of importance in his life. Feeling that he may die soon, his last wish is to go back to his youth, find all his friends, and do one final show. Finding it difficult to sell the story about musicians, the writers changed the theme of the plot to being about kung fu masters instead. For the cast, Cheng and Kwok felt that if they could not get the actors Kuan Tai Chen and Bruce Leung, they would not make the film. See more »

Not an average Kung Fu movie.
28 July 2014 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

"Tiger & Dragon Reloaded" ("Da Lui Toi", aka "Gallants") is not your average Kung Fu movie. This is more of a down to Earth kind of movie, about the commitment to one's ideals and staying true to what you believe in.

Where as there is some fighting throughout the movie, it is not your typical adrenalin-pumping martial arts with lots of young talents, nor is it an impressive display of wire-fu with people flying all over the place. No, this martial arts performed by people who are no longer in their youthful prime. But they still perform quite adequately, nonetheless.

The story is about an old martial arts school now turned to a restaurant after the master fell into a coma. And as he suddenly comes out of the coma, his devoted pupils along with a couple of newcomers learn about old traditions and old ideals.

Siu-Lung Leung (playing Tiger) and Kuan Tai Chen (playing Dragon) carried the movie quite nicely. But the star of the movie was without a doubt Teddy Robin Kwan (playing Master Ben Law).

While it was refreshing to see a martial arts movie of this particular caliber, then the movie wasn't, sadly enough, really that outstanding. Sure, it is good for a single viewing, but it is hardly a movie that can support multiple viewings.
