There is a alternate version done by Miramax, and was not released on DVD or Blu-ray, but obscure their own version because Miramax would thought that the public would criticize the English Adaptation of the film that Miramax's Version makes it a sequel, but the Miramax version is only available on Netflix & Lionsgate's YouTube Channel "LionsgateVOD (only for purchase).

If you want an example of what happens in Hong Kong when an Original movie succeeds watch this one. Iron Monkey 1 did fabulously well. Which leads me to believe that the Hong Kong tradition of spurting out another sequel (or in this case a seeming knockoff) is painfully obvious here.
This piece of garbage looks like it was shot in 1964. I honestly jumped on the net and looked up when this film was shot. There is no way in hell that this can even be compared to Iron Monkey 1. I think a better name for it would be Masked Monkey.
Fight scenes almost made it worth it. Almost.
Rent it if you must. Don't Buy it. Not even for $1.99 . In fact don't rent it. :)
