Stephen Chow returns as Lau Sing, the super arm-powered martial artist. He faces the brother of his nemesis, Cheung Wan To (Wah Yuen), who is out for revenge against Sing. When Ching and his wannabe apprentice Ngou Pi (Pak-cheung Chan) were ambushed by Wan To and his gang in the streets, they are saved by a masked caper. Ching then seeks refuge in Ngou Pi's home and meets his sister, Ngou Chat (Josephine Siao). They are later challenged by Wan To to a boxing match to settle the score and, as a result, forces Ching to learn new fighting skills.
Like the prequel, this film has plenty of thrilling martial acts action and, as usual with Chow, a good dose of comedy and goofiness. His sidekick Smartie (Kenny Bee) went overboard on the goofiness like the last film, but the annoyance was overshadowed by the tastefully done and laugh-out-loud comic relief done by Pak-cheung Chan and Josephine Siao.
The main plot of Lau Sing preparing to do battle with Cheung Wan To is obviously stated but is sometimes buried in the subplots of Yuen Chuen (Sharla Cheung) trying to woo Sing and Ngou Pi wanting Sing to take him on as his apprentice; however, the Siao steals the show with her witty and deadpan humor, slapstick comedy and dramatic performance. Her chemistry between Sing is priceless!
Wah Yuen makes a formidable, yet chauvinistic villain. Coupled with some outrageous action, it's nonstop fun from start to finish.
