    Mad Monkey Kung Fu is an early Lau Kar-Leung picture that built up his reputation as a director (though he also stars), and pretty much made Hsiao Ho's career and while he will be forever known as "Little Monkey". A gangster (Lo Lieh) frames an opera performer (Lau) to take his sister (Kara Hui) as his mistress, cripples his hands and sends him out on the street where his pet monkey is brutally murdered by underlings. Naturally, his student (Hsiao) must take revenge. It's a story as old as time itself. While mostly a comedy, it also has a couple of intense moments, and of course, the fights are incredible, memorable and highly acrobatic (even more so than usual to go with the monkey theme), the mark of any Lau Kar-Leung film. He made this the same year as 36th Chamber of Shaolin, one of the genre's greatest classics. 1979 was a great year for Shaw Brothers studios. 3 years 8 months ago
