Fist of Fury 1991
(新精武門1991) is a 1991 Hong Kong film
directed by Choh Chung-Sing
, and starring Stephen Chow
in the lead role. Aside from a few parodied scenes, the film bears no other similarities to the Bruce Lee film Fist of Fury
except in title only. A sequel Fist of Fury 1991 II
was released the following year.
Chow, as in several of his other films, stars as Sing, a mainland
country boy hoping to earn a living in Hong Kong
. Upon reaching Hong Kong, he finds his luggage stolen, but soon becomes fast friends with the thief, Smart. Together, they try to improve their financial situation through various odd jobs, until Smart discovers Sing's special ability, his extremely strong right arm, and then convinces him to enter a martial arts tournament in the hopes of winning the prize money. The two soon learn that they need to be registered with a school in order to compete. Some scenes do bare some resemblance to Bruce Lee's Fist of Fury including the dojo fight where the Japanese man is forced to eat the sign.
