Four top martial arts stars deliver
11 August 2015 | by ckormos1See all my reviews

It starts with a fight and Kam Kong is wounded but manages to escape with his life not once but twice. Chang Yi helps him heal up. Jimmy wins some of the stolen loot playing dice and the crooks want it back. Chan Sing is the martial arts master with emotional problems.

So there we have the four real friends who really just met circumstantially. They team up to get the bad guys first. I don't know who wrote the script but Jimmy got the best lines and the best gags especially the "eat dirt" gag. He is listed as the director. The talents of the four leads did not go to waste. There were plenty of fighting sequences. Many weapons and hundreds of chickens were also added to the big final fight.

I've been struggling with every Chinese translator on the internet to find out the word written on Luk Chuen's fan. He dramatically tears the fan in half before he fights. If I ever find out what that Chinese character is I'll get back here. (Maybe the other reviewer, Joe Dog, will check back in here and help out as he has done in the past.) Overall this is good stuff and I'm rating it 7 out of 10.
