Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The enormously popular martial-arts star Jackie Chan served as the action director for The 36 Crazy Fists and has a cameo. Wong Tai Kwong's (Tony Leung Siu Hung) father is killed, and he seeks revenge. Learning the intricacies of kicking and slashing from a Shaolin master, he takes on 18 opponents before finally getting his chance to square accounts with his dad's murderer. The supporting cast includes Liu Chia Yung and Jen Shin Kuan. Barely known in the U.S., The 36 Crazy Fists began showing up with reassuring regularity in American video stores after the box-office success of Chan's Rumble in the Bronx.
