This is one of a slew of Hong Kong films that have portrayed folk hero Wong Fei-Hung, the acupuncturist, doctor, martial artist, and revolutionary. Here he is portrayed as a child along with his wandering monk father, Miss Orchid, Chief Fox, and Dr. Yang aka Iron Monkey. Good guys mix with bad guys and hijinks ensue, sometimes at blazing speed. Woo-ping Yuen is a true artist, and Iron Monkey is a treat.
Like every American, I didn't see it until after its 2001 release date. A totally satisfying, mindless kung fu movie that exists just for the action scenes that are amazingly well choreographed. A totally fun roller-coaster from start to finish.
