Storyline

Jackie Chan is a youngster, living in a remote village with his grandfather who teaches him Kung-Fu. He keeps getting into fights, even though his grandfather warns him not to show their Kung-Fu to others. Jackie, though, is tempted by some thugs he beat up to act as the master of a Kung-Fu school. This school's name apparently spreads far, as an old enemy of Jackie's grandfather shows up and attacks him. Jackie goes on training with the help of another member of the old gang, until he can eventually get revenge. Written by Yaron <yaron@starlight.trendline.co.il>

Chopstick Duel of unbelievable proportions!
14 May 2000 | by See all my reviews

Well what can I say about Jackie.. he is a total clown in this film. The movie that i saw was dubbed get this... by ENGLISHMEN! So everyone had a British accent and it was a scream it was like watching Monty Python. The film quality however is pretty poor, and the fight scenes even though well choreographed, don't come out spectacular. However, there is the classic humor of Jackie, which even involves himself dressing up as a woman and beating a guy up with his breasts, and an unbelievable chopstick battle for a piece of meat between Jackie and his teacher (THIS WAS AMAZING HOW THE HELL DID THEY DO THAT you'd HAVE TO SEE IT TO BE BELIEVED!!)
