Monkey Kung Fu
Celestial Classic Movies, Astro Ch 321, 3.45pm Trust the prolific Shaw Studios to have two movies out in the same year, 1979, with similar titles. But this is not Mad Monkey Kung Fu, which stars Lau Kar-Leung and Kara Hui, but the one also known as Stroke Of Death. Famed action director and filmmaker Ching Siu-Tung (Chinese Ghost Story, Executioners, Swordsman) stars as a petty criminal looking for the missing half of a wooden keepsake. He hopes it will lead him to the secret of a legendary kung fu technique, the Gibbon Fist. There will, of course, be bad guys on his trail. And training. Oh yes, lots of training.
