Made on the heels of Snake in the Eagle's Shadow and the legendary Drunken Master, and produced by Lo Wei, this flick is a showcase of a youthful Chan's martial arts skills and emerging kung-fu-comedic talents. Lots of action and a plausible and engaging story too. Audio and visual quality is all good also. A good addition to any kung-fu flick collection, and a must if you are a fan of Chan. Do it!
Jackie proves that a little knowledge is a dangerous thing as he delves into his ‘The Eight Steps of the Snake and Crane’ book; originally written by eight fight legends. The problem is that other martial artists want it for the secrets it contains but Jackie quickly proves to be a reluctant lending library! He’s soon defending himself and the book against waves of fighters but little does he realise that he’s being used as a pawn in a master plan crafted by the last surviving author of the book… A real highlight in Jackie’s early career this rough ‘n’ ready gem sees him work his magic under the direction of Chen Chi-Hwa (Half a Loaf of Kung Fu) to produce an excellent late night action-rammed must-see.Special Features:
