Once upon a time in frugal
So, prey-tell; whom do you think had enough courage to fight back against this oppression? The town's law-enforcer perhaps? As he does own a very nice cardigan! Nah. Not at all. I'm sorry to say that this up-tight sod is more content being in the Warlords pocket, than helping the people he was supposed to protect. Alright, so maybe quarry-man, Yet-Lung (Carter Wong), then? As he is very good at the old martial artist don't you know!
Yes. Why not! Yet-Lung it is. The Chinese version of 'Robin Hood' who'd steel from the Japanese rich and give to the Chinese poor. In fact, over time he becomes so good a kicking the bad-guys into oblivion, that he gets a nickname (The Swallow), a reputations (mores the pity), plus a pretty-looking house guest who he saves from the Warlords men (called Iris).
Still, you know the old saying, don't you? What goes up must come down. Well, for Yet-Lung, it all begins when the Captain of the guard approaches him and demands a duel of sorts.
Though in many ways this is most probably why what next transpires all kicks off when kicks and punches become the flavors of the month. As parents come a calling - Mothers start a balling - and there is a whole host of caterwauling - when Warlords take a falling. HAI-YA!!!!!

Now before I present to you my bullsh*t on this bullsh*t film, 'Magnificent Fist - Kung Fu Titans', please allow me to relay some facts about the star of this film first, Carter Wong. (1) He was born in
in 1947, and began learning traditional Chinese Kung Fu from a Shaolin Monk and
the Grand Master of Wudang Chi-Kung, when he was only 8 years old. (2) In 1984 Carter
was a Muay-Thai instructor for the New York State Police Force. And in 1990 he
taught the US Marines the same thing. (3) It's possible that Carter might have
been cast in Bruce Lee's original version of 'Game of Death', due to the fact that he also starred in 'Fist of The Unicorn' with
Bruce's pal, Unicorn Chan. (4) Carter founded the 'International Chung Hop
Kuen World Federation', which is an organisation that promotes his own style of martial arts based on a
mixture of Kung Fu, Muay-Thai, Taekwondo, Hapkido, and Karate. Moreover, this
form of combat is represented in 36 different countries all around the world. (5)
Although his English name is Carter Wong, he has also been called Patrick Wong,
Wong Ka Tat, Huang Jia Da, Wong Chia Tat, and Carter Huang. (6) Carter starred
with Sammo Hung in the film 'Hapkido', which also had a cameo by Jackie Chan
and Yuen Biao. (7) In 1986 he became the World Muay-Thai Champion. (8) Not
only is Carter a Honorary President of the 'Hong Kong Southern & Northern
Martial Art Association', but in addition to this, he's a 8th Dan Black Belt in
