Audience Reviews for Master With Cracked Fingers (Guang dong xiao lao hu)

Watchable fun, probably the oldest Chan film I'm tracked down, this one under the title Cub Tiger From Kwang Tung. Worth a rental.

This was Jackie Chan's (then going by Sammo Hung's opera school name Yuen Lung) first big break after a former colleague got him the lead in a film that was so bad the producers walked off with the footage one night without ever finishing the film. Later [someone] re-edited the existing footage with scenes from other films and tacked on a pseudo finale with a Jackie Chan look alike releasing it to the Western market in 1979 under a plethora of different titles. Originally released in Hong Kong as "Cub Tiger from Kwangtung."

Jackie Chan must avenge his father's death. Standard bland chopsocky plot, and Chan hasn't developed his trademark onscreen charisma yet in his first starring role. The fight scenes show off his athleticism, but the flick drags badly when fists aren't flying.
