synopsis

Many of legendary director Liu Chia-liang (a.k.a. Lau Kar-leung)'s movies were known to embrace the master/pupil relationship as the film's backbone. Besides directing Mad Monkey Kung-fu, it's also Liu's lead acting debut playing down and out, monkey kung-fu master Chen, crippled by a ruthless villain. Street boy Hsiao Hao (which means "little monkey") convinces Chen to teach him monkey kung-fu to avenge his shame. The training sequences and finale fight are as entertaining as they are wacky.
