| Good kung fu comedy with a twist in the plot
It starts with "Who are these two guys and why are they fighting?" There's a twist, the master has a mole In his school who is really a student of his old nemesis. He bullies people to discredit him.

The movie is a comedy but as typical of Chinese movies, the comedy can quickly become tragedy and then back. The fights are often comedy also. I liked the use of weapons and props used creatively as weapons. Some of the verbal gags were certainly lost in translation.

The action was certainly above average for 1979 in terms of quality and creativity. The moves were well executed, focused, and mostly smooth.

My copy is a digital file made from an old Ocean Shores VHS. It has Chinese and English subtitles. I disagree with the other review - Sammo Hung is not in this movie. Yuen Bo is the lead here and not Yuen Biao as listed on IMDB. I rate the movie above average and recommend it for fans of the genre.
