On Friday nights the best action films from Asia burst into your lounge room. Heart-stopping, karate-chopping and pulse racing.

Directing duo Derek Kwok and Clement Cheng breathe life into Hong Kong martial arts films, assembling some of the genre’s best-known masters for this hilarious action movie.

Dragon (Chen Kuan-Tai) and Tiger (Bruce Leung) were once kung-fu masters who could defeat any opponent, until their master fell into a coma. Thirty years later they continue to wait for him to regain consciousness, and have turned his school into a restaurant which becomes threatened by encroaching gangsters.

This love letter to the kung-fu films of yesteryear bounces along with youthful exuberance and some poignant words of wisdom.
