Dual at Tiger Village (1978)

Also known as Iron Monkey Strikes Back! or Tough Guy or Duel of Master or Iron Monkey 2


Li San is accused of murdering the emperor’s wife and it is up to Cool Head a Kung-fu fighting detective to investigate!  He soon uncovers a high-ranking conspiracy with the help of Chai Fung!

When I put it like that it makes the film sound cheesy! However it is not a cheesy film.  It is fun, exciting, and lots of action.  The plot is basic and the film sticks with the plot without having to add any ostentatious tricks or gimmicks.  The movie is currently (as of July 17th 2016) available to stream with an Amazon Prime account.


I’m a bit frustrated that I can not find a decent credit list for the film.  I’ve added what the film credit said, and what IMDB had.  It is not much to go on and disappointing considering you have actors like Chen Kuan-Tai and Chan Sing in this film.

Chia Ling (Shaolin Monk, The Shaolin Invincibles, Iron Swallow) as Chai Fung

Chang Fang-Hsia (Dragon Gate, The Prodigal Boxer 2) as Magistrate
