Summary: More of a strange ghost story than kung fu film...
Chen Tin-chi (Lee Jae-Yeong) is searching for his friend Kun-kun, and one night is led by a look-alike ghost to a lords compound. He starts to investigate the compounds family, the Liaos, and gets embroiled in the sadistic lords scheme to kidnap and rape young women who are traveling through his district. He locates Kun-kun, and finds that she is looking for her sister, Shu-shu, who disappeared in the area a few weeks before. Soon they discover that Master Liao Wu Hong (Chan Bo-Leung) killed both Shu-shu and her husband, and they, along with the ghosts spirit, look for revenge.

Firefist of the Incredible Dragon is essentially a ghost story with a bit of kung fu thrown in. The plot itself is quite dire, with bodies of young women being dumped in the woods after the head of the Liao household rapes and kills them. There is tons of overt nudity and more than a couple rape scenes that are borderline disturbing. The kung fu, as little as there is, is actually quite good, with Lee Jae-Yeong a capable martial artist, as well as the lead actress. Their final fight with Chan Bo-Leung is exciting and well choreographed, even if it ends in a strange way. Its not a bad movie if you dont approach it as a kung fu film, but more as an off-the-wall ghost story with weird effects, like a flying heart that can explode peoples heads and rip arms off. The original movie was cut by about 11 minutes for the Godfrey Ho version, eliminating some of the nudity and truncating the comedic scenes involving the old Uncle (Ai Chai-Choi).
