Storyline

Weedy office worker Cheung is sent to a remote village to secure property rights for his real estate company. Two martial artists run the village's teahouse, which was once the kung-fu school of their teacher Master Law. Law is in fact lying unconscious upstairs in a three decades-long coma, but he awakes when gym boss and local landlord Pong attempts to secure the teahouse for redevelopment. Law mistakes Cheung for a former student and starts training him in preparation for a martial-arts tournament at Pong's gym that will decide all their fates. Written by Anonymous

Old School
28 December 2010 | by See all my reviews

Or school of Hard Knocks? (not the one Jay-Z was singing about mind you) Depending on your back knowledge of Shaw Brothers movies, this might interest you or not. It does offer a nice retrospective and nods to those movies. Or the era in general. Plus it stars a few of the people that were very big back then. (no pun intended)

Of course the way it is mixed together will not appeal to everybody and though it does have some philosophical aspects it is too thin in other areas. Plus it does not seem to have a constant flow, changing from humour to seriousness in a second. Which is staying true to some extent, but then again it did update a few things, so why not that one too?

All in all you could be almost excused if you thought this was an older movie than it actually is. That was the goal and they achieved it. Nostalgia or not, this is will mostly appeal to a certain group of people. And even they (some of them) might not even like it completely.
