Below average kung fu comedy with very familiar characters
Two girls fight over a small statue. Kam Kong enters and in one blow ends the fight. The masked girl is injured and escapes. Cut to two guys on the road. One pretends to have fleas to pick the other's pocket. They scrap at each other a bit and the Beggar Su clone enters. Cut to Got Siu-Bo needs a bride. The pickpocket tries to pay him off. The beggar insists the two become his students though they are really too lazy.
The story falls apart when the two unlikeable leads are forced to practice martial arts when they only have to just leave. Why does he even want students? The backstory eventually comes out and it is all about revenge. The reveal was melodramatic and felt awkward. Maybe if edited differently it would have worked. As it stands, it failed for me. The fight choreography tries to be comedic for the most part and always fails to be anything other than bland and repetitive.
There was a high point - the training sequence on the parallel bars, but it was too little too late.
Bottom line, I watched this movie once to write a review and I cannot imagine ever watching it again.
