Editorial Reviews

Yuen Biao directs and stars as a naive Tibetan monk sent by his lama to HK to recover a priceless and powerful ancient relic. The golden urn, legendary vessel of Potala Palace, had been lost for hundred years and never been found. One day a Hong Kong lawyer, E.G. Robinson, came to the palace to meet with the superior Dalai Lama. He declared that Mr. Shaw, billionaire, had occupied the holy urn and decided to return it back to where it belongs. Wonglai, a lama of Dalai palace of Tibet who had never left Lhasa before, was designated to go to Hong Kong to collect the urn. Unfortunately, this event became known by a religious opponent Law Wah. He ordered his disciples to Lhasa to seize the urn's lid from Wonglai. Meanwhile, he attacked Shaw's villa and seized the golden urn...

Format: DVD
And the star of the movie- you guessed it, Yuen Biao.

Similiar to Peacock King, Yuen Biao plays a young Tibetan Lama who has magical powers. This movie is a little bit better than Peacock King and the story is much different. Biao is sent to Hong Kong to retrieve a Golden bottle (actually more of a pot) that prevents the Black Section from taking over Tibet. err, something like that... This is Yuen Biao's first (and only) try at directing and he didn't focus much on storytelling. The person who has the Golden bottle wants it to go back to Tibet so it can be with its master, but the evil Yuen Wah gets to the Golden bottle before Biao can get it. Problem is, Biao has the cap to the Golden bottle and its magic won't work without the cap. In a very funny scene Yuen Wah tries to trick Biao, but fails, and it leads to a fun final fight.

Yuen Biao is great in this movie. His character has lived in Tibet all of his life, so when he comes to Hong Kong he has no idea what anything is. Cars, phones, everything is new to him. I thought they could have capitalized on this a bit more, but Biao actually does a good job by not overdoing these types of jokes. Yuen Wah is just as wicked as can be. He worked with Biao on many movies and they are usually very good together, and this movie is no exception. Jet Li's real life wife (though not at the time) Nina Li stars as Yuen Wah's sister and she looks incredibly evil, and also incredibly hot! She was a great actress and really plays this role well. She is so good at being evil. The last person I should mention is Michelle Reis. She shows Biao around Hong Kong and she gives a good comedic performance.

A young Tibetian monk is sent on a quest to recover and reunite the pieces of a sacred artifact. He faces opponents seeking the power of the completed artifact, and has to contend with sorcery, mobsters and many challenges. Jackie Chan only gives a cameo appearance, but the film is enjoyable in a way similar to many of Jackie Chan's early films. It was directed and acted by Yuen Biao - one of Jackie Chan's friends who studied in the Peiking Opera alongside him.

I have seen many films of Yuen Biao. "The kid from Tibet" for me is his best film ever!
