Summary
  This is a spectacular retelling of the adventures of a legendary Ching Dynasty hero Wong Fey Hong and his small band of loyal followers. It is the closing quarter of the last century and China is beginning to feel a growing swell of Western influence. Foreign culture and religion are upsetting the traditional order, and firearms are threatening the omnipotence of the martial arts. Wong's small local militia is to be disbanded by a new regional commander who sees it as a threat to his power, and to his possibly lucrative relationship with foreign traders. A woman for whom Wong has long cared is captured aboard one of the foreign ships. A spectacular battle ensues to defeat the foreigners and their mercenaries and rescue the girl.
