Movie Info

Brothers Little John and Big John make a living as small-time con men. When things go sour, they turn to a powerful man called the Silver Fox, only to find that he too is a con man who's playing them at their own game. Their luck is sure to run out soon, but lucky for them, they run into Fatty the Beggar, who proves that when it comes to the real power of kung fu, looks can be deceiving. ~ Cammila Collar, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Knockabout

Awesome old school kung fu in the finale for a solid 10 minutes. Yuen Biao's acrobatics are the star. Also, check out the training scene.


Terrific kung fu flick! I've always wanted to see this and I don't know why I waited so long. Yuen Biao is one of my alltime favorite martial artists and this ranks up there as one the best films he's ever done.
