Siu nin Wong Fei Hung ji: Tit Ma Lau

Yuen Woo-Ping Hong Kong, 1993

mpho3's rating of the film Iron Monkey

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.
