Plot

Martial arts master Hung Hey-kwun and his equally adept seven-year-old son, Hung Man-ting, fight for the rebellious Heaven and Earth Society in their battle against the tyrannical government. Hung is charged with protecting five young Shaolin students, who have portions of a treasure map tattooed on their backs. When the map is assembled, it reveals the location of a great cache of gold, which H & E needs to finance their efforts. While working as a bodyguard for a rather thick rich man, Hung and son must contend with "The Notorious Mother and Daughter," conniving thieves who use their wiles and kung fu skills to fleece unsuspecting men. However, their greatest threat is Hey-kwun's old enemy, Ma Ling-yee, now a mutated and seemingly invincible madman, who rides around in a silver, beetle-shaped "car"!

 
  Notes  
1.  There's a difference in running time between the HK and the dubbed version of 11 min. As you would aspect by such a difference some scene's are missing and some are shortened on the dubbed version.
But that's not the only difference. On some points the story isn't the same. On the dubbed version it's only at the last moment you're sure that Jet and Chingmy are gonna marry. In the HK version it happens much sooner. In the cameo of Wong Jing (a real cameo) on the HK version he calls himself Hong Xi Guan (nice joke), on the dubbed version he's just the silly dad of one of the boys. There are more differences but I can't remember them all.
The subtitles on the HK version are quite good, so don't watch the dubbed version if you don't have to.
