He's only one of several understated superheroes in this lushly toned 1993 martial arts comedy set in the 19th century and directed by renowned action choreographer Yuen Wo-ping.

All are formidable adversaries—sometimes of one another—in scenes of ingenious slapstick violence. Tsui Hark contributed to the script. In Cantonese with subtitles. 85 min.
