Tong Wai Shing directed this 1982 chop-socky film from the Shaw brothers. Starring Wong Yue as a young kung-fu master working at a funeral parlor while maintaining a gambling habit, The Young Avenger tells the story of what happens when the two worlds collide. Attempting to create a balance of action and comedy, the film features fast-paced martial arts fight scenes as well as a sprinkling of slapstick humor. Co-starring Tong Shang, the picture boasts a score by renowned composer Ennio Morricone, borrowed from Sergio Leone's A Fistful of Dynamite. Matthew Tobey
