| Comedy clichés and kung fu barely beat the boredom out
I have a 1978 Taiwan release date for this movie with Li Yi-Min, Peng Kong, Dean Shek-Tin, Wong Chi-Sang, Wei Pin-Ao, and others. It all starts with two men fighting over a jade horse. The man with the scar must be the bad guy. He is called Dead Eye. Li Yi-Min and his gang of misfits are out for the reward money and Mark Lung Goon-Mo is the policeman.

The comedy uses all the expected clichés like gender bending, obesity, horny post menopause ladies, ugliness, and slipping on a banana peel. The only comedy creativity was changing the cream pie in the face gag to a cow pie in the face gag. The fight choreography, though competent, seemed executed like a dress rehearsal rather than a final take. Nothing held my attention so I could have fallen asleep at any point with no regrets.

There are many familiar faces in this movie as most of the actors were in about 100 of these films but the only one I know by name is the acrobatic Li Yi-Min. The digital file copy is widescreen and dubbed in English. This movie has little to offer for only the hard core martial arts movie fans. I rate it below average for the year and genre.
