Blood of the Leopard (1993)

Blood of the Leopard is one of a myriad of period wuxia that flooded local cinemas in the early 90's. This is a comedy action film where the comedy is language-based and requires a lifetime of cultural and historical background to understand. The martial arts action scenes are, of course, all kinetic and furiously fast paced. This film is quite similar to Kung Fu Cult Master which came out around the same time. The best reason to see this movie nowadays would be to savor Elvis Tsui Kam-Kong's legendary, award winning performance.
