| A masterpiece of kung fu choreography and funny too!
It has to be a comedy with that cast. It starts quick with Wong Yu fights two guys for reasons unknown. Wong Yu is a bounty hunter and he is taking wanted posters but cannot identify the persons pictured. He finally sees a real criminal but cannot defeat him so he runs away. He goes to the tea house for help. Success nets him only the wallet and a letter, no money and now he is a wanted criminal.

The brothers Liu Chia-Liang and Lau Kar-Wing created a masterpiece here. Every fight is unique to the situation and tells a story in itself. The Lau Kar-Wing versus Wilson Tong fight was superb. The Wilson Tong versus Norman Chu sword fight was even better. Only Liu Chia-Liang or his brother could put in such a fine detail as the sword tassel hitting the eyes. Plus the movie never forgets it's a comedy. The final fight was the best of all and one of the best final fights ever.
