Rather disjointed and infantile entry in the Liu Chia Hui playing a Shaolin monk series. A broad comedy. Like other films of this nature it swings between intense violence and the goofiest HK humor. Unfortunately this is bad goofy with lots of "Brown" humor. Snot, farts, excrement, they're all here and more.
Most of the film has the monastery student body divided into two camps; the secular Southern students and the Northern monks in training. It's a series of lame tricks perpetrated by one group on the other. The action is good but swings between exciting kung fu and absurd wire fu. The fight between a monk and a student over a prayer cushion is very good. Unfortunately too much time is spent on the juvenile antics.
Good actors wasted. Skip it.
