Storyline

A high school is in crisis, the students are under-performing and preoccupied with non-academic activities. Henry Chen, aka Big Brother, a teacher with rather rusty writing skills yet armed with the most knowledgeable fists and heart of steel, comes to enlighten and inspire the students with his unconventional teaching methods. Just as the kids are improving their work and enjoying the merits of the educational system, trouble follows. An opportunistic entrepreneur creates havoc by sending in a motley gang of fighters to win over the land. Their approach, however, isn't all that persuasive with Chen as he and his beloved class are going to give the unwelcome guests the benefits of a real education. Written by DOK

I wish
15 September 2018 | by maindraaritomoSee all my reviews

1. Kang Yu's role is more calm but still evil, to show all of his avenging heart. Not such a rough thug. I have seen a lot of that kind of character and I believe I am all through 2. Go-kart race scene, entering city street, end up in traditional market is way too impossible and deleted. 3. First Yen and Yu fight in Taekwondo rules or style as their martial art backround for how the feud started, then Yu becomes dirty, what's next is street rumble and Yen may show his grappling skill.
