After many Kung Fu fights with the sect's guards (lead by Bolo Yeung), Kwong
& Chin get separated, & while Chin manages to escape back to Hong Kong,
Kwong seems to have disappeared. It is not until many moons later that Kwong
returns as well, but he is a changed man, always brooding, & when women
touch him, he invariably seems to turn into a snake.
But why is that ? When on Sanke island, Kwong fought the Great Wizard of the
Devil sect, & that man poisoned him & left him to die. Fortunately
though Kwong was found by princess Ankawa & nursed back to health. The 2
(of course) fell in love, but when Kwong was discovered by the wizard, he was
saved only on the condition that he left Snake Worship Island & the
princess would do everything the wizard wants - which comes quite handy for the
wizard, as he wants to marry her to his good-for-nothing son (San Kuai) ...
Kwong & Chin however decide to train some more Kung Fu & go back to
Snake Worship Island, & it was about time too, since the princess has since
born Kwong's son, who has been cursed to die within a week ba the wizard's son,
& the only way to lift the curse is to find the Snake Pearl. Unfortunately
though, there are some treasure hunters after the legendary pearl, too, so
Kwong & Chin have to fight not only the sect but these guys as well.
Chin loses his life in the proceedings, but Kwong manages to beat both
the wizard & his son - who was about to rape the princess - as well as the
treasure hunters, find the pearl, heal his son & in the end head off to
Hong Kong with the princess.
Ah yeah, there's a gorilla guarding the princess thrown into the story, too.
A stupid martial arts story with hints of the supernatural, a man in a bad
ape suit, women in cheap & cheesy skimpy costumes (comparable to those of
that campy Wonder Woman tv-series), some exotic locations with the
occasional power line hanging into the picture, in other words: pretty
dumb, but a fun watch.
