Liu Chia-Liang spins this Shaw Brothers period kung-fu flick about a pair of scalawags -- Chi Ta-po (Alexander Fu-Sheng) and Chau Chu-chi (Chan Chang-peng) -- who decide to track down some ill-gotten booty from a long-dead pirate named Chang Po-chu. They first manage to find a letter written by Chang and owned by a sly old antique collector who also happens to be a kung-fu whiz himself. From the letter, they learn of an evil priest named Wu Sheng (Gordon Lau) and a wicked lord named Mo Chung (Johnny Wang) who systematically killed anyone claiming a piece of the treasure. Wild high-flying kung-fu fights ensue.
