Movie Info

Chang Cheh spins this lightly comedic martial arts saga about Ying (Philip Kwok) and Chun (Lo Mang), two bored restaurant workers who long for a chance to use some of their formidable kung-fu skills. The two meet and soon become fast friends with Chu Tsai (Sun Chien), another martial arts master. Meanwhile, Pai Mei -- the treacherous priest responsible for the torching of the Shaolin temple -- and his henchmen kill such legendary figures as Chi San and Fong Sai-yuk, hoping to destroy the last vestiges of Shaolin. Pai then tracks down Hung Hei-kwun, injuring him. Ying, Chun, and Chu Tsai happen upon the fallen master and nurse him back to health. When Pai learns that his enemy is still alive, he rallies his thugs and plots an attack against the three friends. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi
