The Warrior from Shaolin (1984)
This 1970s-style Hong Kong martial arts comedy from director Lau Kar-wing stars the irrepressible Gordon Lau as a monk called Tien Fa who is carrying a secret map with the locations of Japanese troops to a small band of rebels during the Japanese occupation in World War II. A pair of shifty boatmen (including Eric Tsang as "Fat Dragon") accompany him on his journey, which becomes a comedy of errors as the boatmen (who think he's carrying treasure) and the villainous Captain Wang (played by the director) try to swipe Tien Fa's package. There's also an amusing scene in a bordello and an appearance by the uniquely Asian brand of hopping vampires, as well as a number of impressively staged fight sequences choreographed by the Lau Family to keep things moving. ~ Robert Firsching, Rovi … More
