Following in the wake of Tsui Hark's kung-fu classic Once Upon a Time in China, this low budget Taiwanese production --directed by Lee Chiu -- concerns Wang Fei-hung (Chin Kar-lok), the undisciplined slacker of son to martial arts master Wong Kei-ying. Not long after the elderly Wong dies, Fei-hung is visited by Jiubinku Kyoto (Lam Ching-ying), a Japanese kung fu ace who is on a mission to defeat every single Chinese top master. Upon learning that his rival has died, Jiubinku reacts violently, smashing the Wong's gravestone. Later, Fei-hung learns that the British have opened an opium den in the center of his town. When he breaks up the place, the British demand an apology -- something that Fei-hung would sooner die than do. He gets help from an unlikely source -- Jiubinku who does not want to see Fei-hung harmed until after they can spar. Jacqueline Ng Suet-man also appears.
