Lik-Chi Lee makes good of the popularity of Wong Fei-hung. Together with a slew of respected Hong Kong actors (but without Stephan Chow) he provides a more comedy-focused take on the martial arts hero who dominated the Hong Kong action scene in the early 90s. The result is pretty fun, if a little on the simple side.

Wong Fei-hung travels to Canton with two disciples and his wife. He wants to help the refugees there, who are being scammed by a rich businessman, so he goes undercover. A couple of cases of mistaken identity later, Fei-hung is part of a major clusterfuck where he'll have to prove he is the actual martial arts master in court.

Anthony Wong is a perfect bad guy, actors like Man-tat Ng and Eric Tang are ideal for the comic relief. The comedy is a bit hit-and-miss, but that's par for the course. Not a film I'd recommend to Hong Kong comedy virgin, obviously, but if you know what you're getting yourself into, this is a lot of fun.
