| Mars learns to fight by watching a cat
Mars gets fired at the tea house. He meets a man (very obviously a girl but in these movies this is standard). They fight and he loses. Cut to Sek Kin fishing. He is the girl's teacher. Mars finds a white dog. He goes to a kung fu school but has no money for classes. The fat guy fights him. The dog was lost but instead of getting a reward for finding it Mars gets beaten for stealing it. The boy (girl) comes to his rescue. She teaches him a bit then there is a gag in town about going to the correct rest room. Mars returns to the kung fu school and defeats the fat guy but the master comes out and beats him with the staff.

At about the 51 minute mark there is a sudden cut to a scene with Linda Lin Ying (the aunt in "Drunken Master") and Hwang Jang-Lee. This feels like a fine example of the "make it up as we go along" school of movie making. Hwang Jang-Lee is fresh out of prison and eager to do some violence.

Mars meets Sek Kin, the "reel master" of fishing pole technique.

Hwang Jang-Lee is off to do evil and Linda Lin Ying tries to stop him. The result is a once in a lifetime fight sequence that fans of these movies will love. Plus, Mars arrives at the end and also tries to stop Hwang Jang-Lee. You just know there will be a rematch. Many of these movies are about fictional animal styles of kung fu. Some include snake, monkey, rat, horse, and even crab. Though fishing pole style was set up early in the movie it is cat style that defeats the villain.

My copy is English dubbed by the A team of voice overs. The video is minimal acceptable quality to watch on a modern wide screen high definition television. I rate this movie above average for the year and genre and recommend it for all fans.
