On the quest for Cripple Wu, the murderer of his father, Lung (Unicorn Chan) meets little boy Xiao-fu, who adores him because he can do great summersaults & thus persuades him to stay with him & his widowed mother.

When one day Lung & the boy watch a wandering circus though, they get mixed up with the Wong clan, a family of gangsters eil enough to make deals with the Japanese, & to save the boy from the Wongs, Lung has to humiliate himself to a point where he has to crawl through between the legs of one of the Wongs. Xiao-Fu interprets Lung's behaviour as cowardice renounces his erstwhile idol & runs off in disgust, whereupon Lung decides to hit the road again ... when on his way he finds the wandering circus all slaughtered except a girl, whom he brings back to Xiao-Fu's mum to take care of her & hide her. When the Wongs ome & search for her, Lung defends her valiantly ... but for some reason he has no reservations against watching her brother, who soon after shows up too, being killed by the Wongs.

When the Wongs however take the girl prisoner, Lung's patience has come to an end, & he not only frees her, but - with the help of the girl & Xiao-Fu - fights & kills them one by one ... until the Wongs call upon their father ... who is of course none other than Cripple Wu, the killer of Lung's parents, & in the end Lung  kills him too, using, amongst others, the Heaven & Earth-blow which he has learned from Bruce Lee (& which is signified by some psychedelic animation effects.

 

This movie's main claim to fame (or notoriety) was that Bruce Lee was tricked into appearing in it: Lee's friend Unicorn Chan asked him to help him a little with his martial arts film which was supposed to be his breakthrough movie, so Lee agreed to visit the set & help a little with the action sequences - just as a favour among friends. Someone however had the good sense to secretly film some of it & then include some of the footage showing Bruce Lee (as well as some Bruce Lee-stills superimposed over fightscenes) into the movie & for that give him billing above the title. Bruce Lee was furious about this & tried to have the movie legally banned, with little success.

Apart from the inventive way to include Bruce Lee-sequences & the sometimes psychedelic fightscenes, the movie is quite a bore, though, ith Unicorn Chan stumblng through his role totally devoid of charisma or panache, whilt the story offers little of interest that that annoying kid wouldn't be able to destroy, & which ahdn't been much better ... even in the realms of cheapo Kung Fu !
