Filmed at the peak of Jackie Chan’s prime, sixteen years after his breakout turn in “Drunken Master”, this transcendent pairing of classic Shaw Brothers director Lau Kar-leung and Chan resulted in what many claim to be the greatest martial arts film ever made.
In this take on the legend of Wong Fei-hung, Chan shares the screen with the great Ti Lung and also Anita Mui, who almost steals the show as his motor-mouthed stepmother. The plot revolves around Fei-hung’s attempts to foil a foreign syndicate trafficking in ancient Chinese artifacts, but the film’s jaw-dropping kung-fu sequences need little explanation.
Lush, opulent, and made with no consideration for budget or schedule, it took three months just to shoot the final action scene.
