A young rickshaw driver in Shaolin Kung Fu utilizes his deadly martial arts abilities to decapitate a wealthy criminal.
A journey of violent retaliation ensues after criminals harm his loved ones. In The Shaolin Kids, a merciless top assassin eliminates a political opponent and must confront the fury of his lethal daughter.
Prior to departing from the Shaolin temple, students are required to overcome a sequence of obstacles and conquer the formidable Shaolin Bronzemen, skilled combatants armed with weapons and heavy armor, who swiftly defeat any adversaries. Actor Carter Wong (known for his role in “Big Trouble in Little China”) will serve as a formidable opponent in both “18 Bronzemen” and “Return of the 18 Bronzemen.”
