. Dr Yang for example is a highly skilled doctor, a flashy cook, and a musician. Granted, most of it is grounded in fantasy, much like 'Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon' and friends, but it still looks really cool, and a few of these fights are easily some of my favourite fight-scenes ever. The governor orders the chief constable, Fox, to hunt down Iron Monkey and to arrest anyone who is linked to monkeys in any way. Tsang is good as young Wong Fei Hung and the beautiful Jean Wang is visually pleasing to watch as Miss Ho who can also whoop butt. Orchid escapes to warn Wong Kei-ying and Iron Monkey. When Wong Kei Ying Donnie Yen and a young Wong Fei Hung Sze-Man Tsang arrive in town, Kei Ying is forced to help the corrupt authorities track down Iron Monkey.
It's very nostalgic for me for some reason. Concurrently, Hin-hung orders his men to search the town for Iron Monkey and Wong Kei-ying, but Fox gets to the clinic first to warn Orchid. They are well rounded individuals that posses other admirable skills. They have a final confrontation with Hin-hung on top of burning wooden poles. This movie is action packed with Ping's trademark unique fighting sequences. The locals despise Wong Kei-ying for assisting the governor in capturing their hero, so they refuse to sell him food or provide him with shelter.
Master Fox provides funny moments too. His partner, however, does not share his passion for the sport, which frequently causes friction in their relationship. They retreat back to the clinic, where Wong is surprised to discover that Yang is actually Iron Monkey. These wonderful characters on top of the amazing fight sequences makes this movie transcend martial art movies and rival any movies genre ever produced in terms of sheer entertainment value. Fox appears to be a bungler who is not aware that Iron Monkey is actually the physician who is treating his injured men who fought with Iron Monkey the previous night. When all else fails, the Govenor forces a traveling physician Donnie Yen into finding the bandit. A group of carpet fitters are sent on a job to an old Country house in the middle of nowhere.
Donnie Yen's martial arts is impressive and his character is very straight to the point, but very noble. The Wongs leave town for Foshan while Yang and Orchid see them off. During the trial, the governor orders Wong Fei-hung to be branded for defiance, but Iron Monkey shows up and disrupts the proceedings. At night, he dresses in black and travels around town to rob the rich and help the poor. Led by Hin Hung Yee Kwan Yan these evil Shaolin Monks and Nuns have been paid take out our heroes, leaving Iron Monkey, Kei Ying, Fei Hung, and Miss Orchid Jean Wang to kick many an evil-doers arse. How much plot can one develop in a 90 minute martial art movie?.
The arrival of an evil Shaolin monk, brings the Physician and Iron Monkey together to battle the corrupt government. In fact, in 'Iron Monkey', kung-fu time occurs much more frequently then plot-development time, and whenever a plot-development moment comes along, it usually accompanied by kung-fu time. Once, he breaks into the governor's residence and makes off with a hoard of gold. The story in 'Iron Monkey' serves only as a device to allow for more fighting. Wong eventually arrives at Yang's clinic and is taken in by Yang and Miss Orchid, while he is still unaware of Yang's true identity. Hin-hung's monks eventually find their way to the clinic and they engage Orchid in a fight. When all else fails, the Govenor forces a traveling physician Donnie Yen into finding the bandit.
The guards and four Shaolin monks are unable to stop him. When Orchid proves far too skillful for the monks, they drug her and attempt to rape her. The arrival of an evil Shaolin monk, brings the Physician and Iron Monkey together to battle the corrupt government. The young Wong Fei-hung character was great as well. While Hayden often fits the stereotype of dumb jock as do his co-workers Luther and Dauber , he sincerely cares about his friends and family, and tries his best to make things work out.
Fans of Hong Kong wuxia movies will get a kick out of this, as will action fans in general. Stef uses her police work to catch the driver. Although Wong Fei-hung is able to defeat the Hin-hung's best monks, he is captured and tortured. I wish I could perform a no-shadow kick or a King Kong palm. Most of best battles have both men sharing the screen with lightning speed quickness!! The corrupt officials of a Chinese province find themselves the target of Iron Monkey Rongguang Yu , a sort of Chinese Robin Hood. After an intense fight, Iron Monkey and Wong Kei-ying defeat Hin-hung and knock him down into the inferno below. For me this movie did that and more.
Iron Monkey and Wong Kei-ying run into Hin-hung and his men in two separate encounters and they are severely wounded by him. The Fosters deal with the aftermath of the car accident, Jesus went to Boarding School. However they soon discover it's a trap set up by the savage, cannibalistic family, The Hannings. After the film, screen captions inform viewers that Yang and Orchid are married, and that Wong Fei-hung, inspired by his father and the Iron Monkey, later becomes a hero among the Chinese and restores honor to Shaolin Monastery. Hin-hung takes over as the new governor. A Hong Kong variation on Robin Hood. The bad guys are very bad including one deadly renegade monk and the action is intense.
Wong Kei-ying is eager to prove his innocence and he fights with Iron Monkey. Jean Wang and Sze-Man Tsang who, in Monkey Magic style, is actually a girl pull of some really cool action sequences. You know the type I'm talking about. The Sharks will once again give people from all walks of life the chance to chase the American dream, and potentially secure business deals that could make them millionaires. They assist each other and recover from their wounds quickly.
