| The "Return of the Gooseboxer" plus a beggar buddy makes good viewing
It starts with "Who are these people and why are they fighting?" which is a popular opening for these movies plus some wear masks. Then cut to town where dead bodies are displayed as a warning – don't cross Mr. Shu! On the street is our hero from "Gooseboxer", Charles Heung. He accepts a challenge and defeats the whole school. Fan Mei-Sheng is in the crowd and he cons Charles out of his money. They buddy up.

Charles plays the same dimwit country bumpkin he plays in "Gooseboxer" and it works for him. In that movie another imaginary animal style was added to kung fu. In this movie three more styles are added, shrimp, crab and the most lethal of all - I call it cow dung style.

Overall this is above average in every way and I highly recommend it.
