"A young fighter enters and wins a kung fu contest and wins the right to wed the daughter of a local wealthy figure. After winning the daughter refuses to marry him, and in desperation the father thinks up a way to save his daughters future. He decides to make his "Son in law" gather three objects for him: 1) a secret shaolin book from a monk; 2) the scarf from a prostitute; 3) and last but not least the ruby off the turbin of a yoga master. After getting by the first two tasks by the skin on his back, with the help of a friend he attempts to close the deal not knowing what lies ahead of him? The Yoga master will shock you with the amazing flexibility and joint work he does, and the comedy and kung fu make this a must have! If you pass this one up I don't know what to tell you."

"Chien Yuet Sang and Alan Chui star as 2 good friends who love kung fu. Yuet Sang is better at fighting, and when he gets kicked out of his Dad's house, he takes Alan Chui with him to stay with his uncle. After winning a kung fu tournament, Yuet Sang is awarded by getting to marry a beautiful woman. If you don't know who Chien Yuet Sang is, then it would help to know that he is not the most attractive person. I am not a good judge of good looking males, but his face kind of looks like a mouse. So obviously she doesn't want to marry an ugly and poor man and forces him to steal some treasures she wants. Stealing a kung fu manual from San Kwai would be the best scene, but the finale takes one of the most unique turns ever.
This is only an average kung fu movie. The highlights are Alan Chui and Chien Yuet Sang's acrobatics and San Kwai's hilarious performance. The end of the movie is where it finally gets interesting. The fights with the Yoga kung fu master are not for the squeamish, but worth a look if you want to see 2 of the craziest scenes ever put to film. All I will say is that every part of the Yoga guy's body can bend any way you can imagine. Most of the ways he bends I would have never thought of. This movie more than lives up to it's title.
Picture quality on the Video Asia disc is not bad."
Best Kung Fu Movie of all time

"This movie, which I originally found on VHS back in 1994 at the 99cent store, is quite simply the best kung fu movie of all time. the final fight scene with the yoga master truly must be seen to be believed. ever seen someone fight 2 dudes with their leg behind their head, standing up? didnt think so. thats one of the yoga masters more unremarkable feats. possibly the best twelve dollars or whatever you could ever spend"
