I liked this movie. It's fairly entertaining and never takes itself too seriously. Amusing scenes where Mars throws a poor cat way up in the air REPEATEDLY in order to observe how it lands. The whole throwing sequence it shot, and you get to see just how a cat behaves in the air. Mars then practices the cat style of landing (and fighting). That poor cat must have gotten air-sick.

The plot is very typical. Boy knows no kung fu, boy gets picked on by punks who know little kung fu, boy thinks a girl (Tien Niu) is a boy, boy learns kung fu from a master, boy teches punks lesson, villain comes in, master gets in trouble, boy comes to rescue, and boy discovers the girl is a girl after all.
