It starts with two against one fighting over hidden money. Cut to Cliff Lok practicing the three section staff. The one armed swordsman barges in and challenges Suen Yuet who "fights" him. Then a spearsman barges in for another challenge. Cliff Lok flips from master to master according to the winner. His father laments how the son is only interested in martial arts. Cliff takes his spearsman master to the brothel and offends about four men. They follow him home and Cliff is forced to flee. The four turn against the father but another master arrives and rescues him. Cliff has his fish dinner stolen by a monkey then hooks up with a "cough" master and a kung fu chick.
This is a kung fu farce comedy. Some parts seem to have been made up on the fly but there is a coherent underlying story. The pace is maniacal. I had to pause the movie just to write a note. It is non- stop something happening and the last thirty minutes are non-stop fighting. The only slow down is when the title character appears at about the 46 minute mark. He is a man from Cliff's master's past. He is a hunchback, not a ninja supremo. The ninja title nonsense is leftover from the VHS rental days.
I recommend this movie for fans of the genre and warn those who have not watched a few hundred of these type movies that you just won't get it if you watch this one first. I rate it a notch above average.
