Storyline

A brother and sister escape from Japanese-occupied Shanghai to Japanese-occupied Taiwan, to stay with their grandfather who runs a Kung-Fu school there. However, the master of a Japanese Kung- Fu school in Taiwan has designs on bringing all other schools on the island under his domination, and part of his plan involves the murder of the siblings' grandfather. Undaunted, the brother and sister reestablish their grandfather's school, leading to a final confrontation with the Japanese Kung Fu master. Jackie Chan plays a young thief who at first does not want to learn Kung-Fu, but finally realizes that he can no longer stand by and let the Japanese trample the rights of the Chinese people. He proves extremely adept at the martial arts, and carries the fight to its final conclusion. Written by Christopher E. Meadows <cmeadows@nyx.cs.du.edu>

Authentic! 5/10
6 November 2015 | by See all my reviews

Review: This is a very authentic Kung Fu movie which I found quite amusing because of its funny dubbing and old skool storyline, we're a pupil is out to revenge his master. The old ones are always the best! Jackie Chan was a young looking 22 year old when he starred in this movie and his martial arts skills wasn't as polished as they are in his latter movies but the epic showdown at the end was still quite good. Chan plays A Lung, who steals from the rich with his father, who he also lives with. After turning down many Kung Fu schools because he doesn't like the fact that he would have to change his lifestyle, he finally joins a school because he is fed up with the way that the Japanese are putting down the Chinese way of training. One of the Japanese Kung Fu school leaders, wants to make all of the Chinese martial arts schools come under his umbrella but all of them want to stay independent so the conflict turns to violence. He offers all of the schools to a battle for power but his elite squad easily take out the Chinese top fighters. When he finally gets to challenge A Lungs school, an epic showdown between there top fighters takes place and the Japanese leader uses underarm tactics to try and take out A Lung. I just admit, the action scenes were not the best and some of the fighting was really slow but the determination from Chan in the final showdown was great. There was a hint of silly comedy at the beginning but once the movie gets going, the politics between the Japanese and Chinese schools was quite interesting. I doubt they could make a movie like this in this day and age because it's not really politically correct but with that aside you can really see how much Chan stood out from the rest at such a young age. I can't really see how it's connected to the original Fist of Fury, which Chan also starred in and I do think that people will be a bit disappointing because they might be expecting something close to the original, which starred the brilliant Bruce Lee. Anyway, you can't fault this movie for its authenticity and believable cinematography but the action scenes were a bit weak. Watchable!

Round-Up: This movie was made a few years before Chan hit it big with Drunken Master but he still had a few movies behind him so he wasn't new to the big screen. His acting was quite impressive, for that day and age and the straight forward storyline was interesting throughout. The director, Wei Lo, who died in 1996 of heart failure, also directed the original Fist of Fury and the Big Boss which both starred the great Bruce Lee, so he was one of the lucky directors to have worked with the best in the martial arts world. He had made over 60 movies in his career, most of which I can't pronounce because they were made in China but he will always be remembered for the movies that he made with Bruce Lee which have become timeless masterpieces. 

Budget: N/A Worldwide Gross: HK$456,787.20

I recommend this movie to people who are into their action/martial arts/dramas starring Jackie Chan, Ming Cheng Chang and Shen Lin Chang. 5/10
