"The Fearless Hyena" (Cantonese-tjp|t=笑拳怪招|j=Siu kuen gwaai jiu|p=Hsiao chuan yi chao) is a 1979 Hong Kong kung fu film directed and starring Jackie Chan. The film was co-directed by Kenneth Tsang.

Plot

Shing Lung (Jackie Chan) is a youngster, living in a remote village with his grandfather, kung fu master Chen Peng-fei (James Tien). Lung does not take his training seriously enough, gambles and gets into fights, displaying the skills his grandfather has told him he must keep secret.

Lung briefly finds employment selling coffins, working for an unscrupulous proprietor (Dean Shek), who even stoops to selling second-hand coffins. Lung is fired when he accidentally traps his boss in one of the coffins. After making his escape, he meets up with three thugs he'd beaten up earlier, who ask him to teach them kung fu. Lung meets their sifu, Ti Cha (Lee Kwan), the unskilled leader of the Everything Clan. Master Ti offers Lung a lucrative job training his students. Lung makes the mistake of naming the school under the Sien Yi clan name. This comes to the attention of evil kung fu master Yen Ting Hua (Yam Sai-kwoon), who finds and kills Shing's grandfather.

Lung undergoes training from Unicorn (Chan Wai-Lau) and by fighting against the top fighters from rival schools. This boosts the reputation of the school and the scheming Master Ti, but eventually allows Lung to take revenge for his grandfather's murder.

Fight scenes

Fearless Hyena features several unusual fight scenes, including a chopsticks duel, Shing Lung fighting disguised a cross-eyed mentally retarded man and later as a woman, and fighting using "Emotional Kung-Fu", a style that involved vividly displaying the emotions of anger, sorrow, joy and happiness to find the opponent's weakness and thus fighting whilst crying or laughing when hurt.

Box office

The film grossed a HK $5,445,535 at the Hong Kong box office.Fact|date=May 2008
