Jackie Chan stars in this straight-ahead kung fu saga directed Chen Chi-hua. The film opens with eight Shaolin masters developing a new, powerful martial-arts technique and writing the form down into a tome called "The Eight Steps of the Snake and Crane." Soon thereafter, the eight masters and the book vanish. Years later, young street punk Hsu Ying Fung (Chan) winds up with the book and has mastered the entire form. Hungry for its secrets, members from a sundry of clans try to seize the book.

Chan ranges from the casual, one handed beat down (which he often performs without even standing up or breaking a sweat) to the all out, weapon-wielding, man-throwing, face-kicking melee that the best and the worst films of this kind have in spades.
