Lau Kar-leung follows up on his 1978 classic with this comic kung-fu flick which is more of a parody than a sequel to the original. Two-bit con artist Chi (Gordon Lau Kar-fai) convinces a group of desperate workers at a dye mill who have been denied their pay by their evil Manchu bosses that he is none other than the legendary martial arts master San Te. Chi tries to hide his utter lack of kung-fu ability until he gets humiliated by crack kung-fu fighter Boss Wang (Johnny Wang Lung-wei). Chi scurries to the Shaolin temple hoping to develop some real ability. Initially he is turned away by the monks until San Te himself takes pity on the guy. There Chi learns the skills he needs to take out Wang and thwart the baddies.
