Set in the final years of the Ming Dynasty, when the nation is gifted a rare creature by the Bruneian Empire. A member of the Imperial Secret Police is tasked to tame the beast but realising that it is a kind creature by nature, he releases it from the palace and then elopes with the daughter of a man executed on false charges. His action prompts the palace to put a hefty bounty on the creature and now martial arts masters are hunting for it, hoping to earn the bounty.
It has one or two funny scenes and that is perhaps the only positive thing I can say about this film. A repetitive film made worse by pretty much having one set, which gets tiring very very fast. A cast of random characters somehow gathered together to perform a set of random tasks. I personally expected the film to be more focused on Chinese mythical creature, but the little furry animal has nothing mythic about it at all, it's just a ... black and white pherbie. The story itself has no direction at all which makes the whole film feel pointless. A waste of a strong cast (not saying they can act), and shows the disappointingly sad decline of the director who once made Initial D and Internal Affairs.
