One of Cliff Loks better movies
2 June 2017 | by jerrypanzier1989See all my reviews

If you're a Cliff Lok can like I am,see this movie. Cliff is the Kung Fu genius - he's able to copy anyone's style of Kung Fu after seeing them fight, thus gaining the ability to whoop their asses.

With a doofy sidekick,he opens a Kung Fu school and that's when the trouble starts. With a simple,basic plot that's understandable, this is one of the better martial arts movies out there. Plenty of fighting that's pretty good, a story a six year old can understand, Cliff Lok, AND Lee Hoi San, you can't go wrong. Grab a beer or three and watch with friends.
