Iron Monkey

"One of the best period kung-fu actioners Hong Kong has to offer, Iron Monkey is produced by Tsui Hark and helmed by renowned filmmaker and action director Yuen Woo Ping (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon).

Action greats Donnie Yen (SPL) and Yu Rong Guang (My Father is a Hero) team up and face off in blistering martial arts set pieces. Set in the late 19th-century Canton folklore era of patriotic heroes, evil oppressors, and chest-thumping righteous action, Iron Monkey revolves around the heroic struggles of a patriotic vigilante, folk hero Wong Kei Ying, and his even more famous son Wong Fei Hung, here still an adolescent and played by actress Angie Tsang.

Soft-spoken doctor by day, vigilante Iron Monkey by night, physician Yang (Yu Rong Guang) has the local Qing government up in arms with his Robin Hood-like heroic exploits against the town's corrupt overlords. With the authorities randomly dragging people off the streets on fabricated suspicions, Wong Kei Ying (Donnie Yen) and his son Fei Hung (Angie Tsang), who just rolled into town, are quickly arrested when they display their martial arts prowess. The unscrupulous magistrate holds Fei Hung hostage, and orders Wong Kei Ying to capture Iron Monkey in exchange for his son."
