Storyline

A spoof of the legendary martial arts icon Wong Fei-Hung, this action comedy finds Fei-Hung (Alan Tam) being challenged to duels by the crafty Ken Shek (Tony Leung Ka Fai). However, Fei-Hung is actually a cook and has not mastered any martial arts move and, therefore, relies on his "disciples" Porky Wing (Eric Tsang), Leung Foon (Simon Yam) and So (Man Tat Ng) to train him. Meanwhile, Shek has purchased opium from shady businessman Indiana Jones (Paul Fonoroff) and plans to rule the town with the profits he gained from selling the drug. Written by Oliver Chu

Hilarious Wong Fei-Hung spoof!
12 November 2014 | by OllieSuave-007See all my reviews

Singer/actor Alan Tam spoofs the the martial arts legend Wong Fei-Hung, giving the movie a comedic twist where Fei-Hung is being challenged to duels by the crafty Ken Shek (Tony Leung Ka Fai). However, Fei-Hung actually knows more about cooking than martian arts and, therefore, relies on his "disciples" Porky Wing (Eric Tsang), Leung Foon (Simon Yam) and So (Man Tat Ng) to train him to fight. Meanwhile, Shek has purchased opium from shady businessman Indiana Jones (Paul Fonoroff) and plans to rule the town with the drug profits.

Like previous Fei-Hung movies, this film has plenty of martial arts action and breathtaking battles, including the fight between Fei-Hung's disciples and Shek. However, it is the slapstick comedy (at times nonsensical) and goofy humor that take center stage in the film, providing you with loads of fun. From So going berserk after tasting a bit of opium to the awkward chemistry between Fei-Hung and his love interest Aunt Yee (Teresa Mo), this movie is pretty captivating.

The plot is also pretty solid and gains momentum as the movie progresses, and has classic good guy vs. bad guy elements. There is an all-star cast, including cameos from actors from the original classic Wong Fei-Hung series Kien Shih and Gwa-Pau Sai. Other than over indulgence in goofiness in a few scenes, this movie is a good one for a laugh.

Grade B
