Drunken Arts and Crippled Fist (1979). 1h 20m | Not Rated

“Apparently child abuse was once legal and that was in 1979. Simon Yuen tortures a child in the first scenes and he grows up to be Li Yi- Min. He is a martial arts expert so he cannot fight anyone to the disappointment of his father. Many over-acting stunt men want to fight him. He also meets a kung fu chick, Chang Hsiao-Fan, in her only movie. Then he meets a real master and gets soundly beaten. He goes back to Simon Yuen with the girl. Simon cannot teach him the cripple fist because he is not a cripple yet Simon knows it and is not a cripple. Maybe something is lost in the translation. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eLi Yi-Min has excellent acrobatic skills. The final fight certainly demonstrated them. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eLo Lieh? I blinked and missed him.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eSimonu0026#39;s martial arts scenes are all stunt doubled and when he is facing the camera and doing a few moves they are slow and feeble. He was a great martial artist and movie favorite but in the end time always wins. u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eWei Pin-Ao has an unforgettable face and has been in over 100 movies of many genres. I have never found much about his biography other than while acting with Bruce Lee they became close friends. This movie is probably the only one where he has fight scenes and they are comedic of course.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThis sort of thing is only suitable for fans of the genre who take pleasure in a low budget average kung fu movie from the 1970s.”
