Iron Monkey (HK 1993)

Rating: ****
Producer: Tsui Hark
Director: Yuen Woo Ping
Cast: Donnie Yen, Yu Rong Guang, Jean Wang, Tsang Tze Man

Amazing! The Iron Monkey is like a Chinese Robin Hood, fighting corrupt officials and stealing goods to give to the poor and downtrodden. Lots of spectacular fighting allows Donnie Yen and Yu Rong Guang to shine in this film, even though there are a lot of wire tricks and under-cranking. Also, the kid who plays Wong Fei Hung (a girl named Tsang Tze Man) is amazing, and Jean Wang is fatally pretty. I don't believe Ms. Wang is a martial artist, but Yuen Woo Ping performs his magic on her with remarkable results. About what you would expect from Tsui Hark and Yuen Woo Ping teaming up.
