Jet Li may be better known for his role in Once Upon a Time in China, but this humorous interpretation of the Shao Lin legend brought out the best of him. A perfect cast, well-woven plot and colourful images provide a storytelling rarely seen in Hong Kong cinema.

Its sad that the original Cantonese cut of "Fong Sai Yuk" is a neglected Jet Li flick. Its full of ballsy action, absurd humor that borderlines self parody, heavy pathos, and its a good dad movie! Its so nice, you might want to watch it TWICE!
