The Four Shaolin Challengers (1977)

This is your standard girl meets boy, boy loses girl, girl gets abducted by gold smugglers and forced into prostitution story. The boy summarily unites with his old buddies to rescue the girl and kill all the baddies. The boy in question in Larry Lee, playing someone with a lose connection to Wong Fei-hung, who teams up with fellow challengers Bruce Leung, Wong Yuen-san and Jason Pai who all seem to be having a great time despite the gravity of the situation. The ensemble of familiar faces give the film an endearing quality, but this is pulp kung fu filmmaking at its most basic.
