To avenge his masters death, He'll fight like never before!
Chen Zhen, a Chinese engineering student in Kyoto, who braves the insults and abuse of his Japanse fellow students for his local love Mitsuko Yamada, daughter of the director, returns in 1937 to his native Shangai, under Japanse protectorate -in fact military occupation- after reading about the death of his kung-fu master Hou Ting-An in a fight against the Japanese champion Ryuichi Akutagawa.

One of my favorite kung fu movies. Mitsuko is such a cutie in it and Jet Li shows such power and flexibility. The plot itself is classic and based off Bruce Lee's Fist of Fury. I personally like this rendition more because it ends happy. The fight with Mitsuko's uncle was really entertaining. I personally loved the character and the dialogue. The racism is really sad and shows a deeply rooted hatred that probably exists to this day. I hope that like this movie, love will conquer all.
