Iron Monkey

Set in a China village, this film is about a corrupt politician finds himself
and his army repeatedly robbed by a bandit, who calls himself the Iron
Monkey AKA Dr. Yang (Rongguang Yu). In an attempt to capture him he
holds the son of martial arts expert Donnie Yen (Wong Kei-Ying)
hostage and tells him he must kill the Iron Monkey, so that his son, Fei
Hung (Sze-Man Tsang), will be set free. A trivia note here is that
the son is a girl in real life. The Iron Monkey is similar to Robin
in that he robs from the rich and gives to the poor, but the town
does not help Donnie Yen in his quest. This movie is like a spoof of
martial arts films and has some slapstick moments. The director and fight
choregrapher also worked on the Matrix and Crouching Tiger –
Hidden Dragon
. Needless to say, the action scenes were very well done
and the fighters were also highly experienced Shaolin martial arts
experts. This movie was made in 1993 and there is also a sequel should
this one be a success in the North American market
