This may be an action comedy, and a fairly boisterous one at that, but director-star Sammo Hung isn't out to poke holes in the legend of Bruce Lee. In fact, he defends the late master's honor in one scene by clobbering an arrogant Lee imitator. Hung plays a tubby hick from the sticks who idolizes Bruce and tries to emulate the Dragon's heroics when his uncle's business is threatened by a pack of gangsters, led by veteran villain Roy Chiao. The well-meaning kung fu trainee very quickly gets in over his head, and his bumbling actually makes matters worse--before (mostly thanks to dumb luck) the day is finally saved. A lot of the action is staged straight, for head-banging thrills, especially a showdown set piece in which Hung faces off against three scary martial arts masters, each with a different skill. The moral of the story, if anything, is that it's harder to be a hero than ordinary mortals realize. --David Chute
