Skinny Tiger Fatty Dragon Is one of those Top late 80's early 90's hong kong action films with not only plenty of fight scenes BUT with "Sammo Hung Kung Fu FIGHT SCENES" :0)
Sammo is nothing short but brilliant in this film. Showing off his Funny-side, Adorable Cuddly-side, and his Love of Bruce Lee Kung Fu side!!

Sammo plays the typical good guy Cop with a partner who offers the film comic genuis Karl Maka. who despite are both the good guys in this movie, they are both aware that even the good guys have to break the law sometimes ;0)

The story is pretty standard, but with a few good twists and once again Sammo shows here that he is capable of making other actors look believable in martial arts even if they've never had any training in their lives!
Once again sammo also shows that even at this stage in his life and for his size, he is still capable of doing all of of his own amazing stunts and without wires!

Skinny Tiger, Fatty Dragon is full of Comedy, fun Bro-mance and very satisfying Kick Ass FIGHT/ACTION Scenes!

If you love films like Police Story, In The Line Of Duty, My lucky Stars, Flash Point etc then this film fits right in there and in that genre.

A must BUY for any Sammo Hung lover! X

4/5 for the movie itself! Well worth the watch.

However, the version pictured is the special edition, the version I received is the rubbish HKL release with zero special features.
Keep that in mind when buying.

Bey Logan, the prolific commentary fellow who appears on many of these Hong Kong Legends efforts, rates this as one of his favourites.

Fair do's, but I can't see what all the fuss is about. I like Sammo Hung and many of his films, but this was a big drag. It seemed to go for ever and get nowhere fast. Lots of scraps, true, but laboured "acquired taste" comedy, an annoying, irritating side kick in Skinny Tiger.

Perhaps it's for the best that Sammo will be sticking to producing from now on.

Sammo Hung in top form! And more imitations of Bruce Lee! 12 July 2008
By morgoth - Published on
Format: DVD
This could be considered sort of a sequel to Enter the Fat Dragon. It doesn't feature the constant worship of Bruce Lee, but Sammo does fight and act the same way that he did in Enter the Fat Dragon. Sammo and Karl Maka star as cops who try to do their job well, but they are just a little too ready to fight with people. They end up getting in trouble and are fired. But they still want to bust a drug dealer. I don't know why I'm explaining the story, because it doesn't even matter. This movie is nonstop comedy and fighting. The comedy is good at times, though nothing great. The fights on the other hand are magnificent. Sammo must have been using some type of performance enhancement, because a fat man should not be able to move like that. All of the fights are good, and I mean really good. The only thing I was disappointed with was at the end where Mark Houghton and Sammo square off, and the fight seems to be cut way short. I've heard that there is a rare longer version of this movie that has the full fight scene, so I am going to have to track that down.


The Mei Eh DVD has pretty good picture quality and subtitles.

fun, fascist fight-fest! 12 Sept. 2011
By Mantis - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Karl Maka and the magnificent Sammo Hung play Skinny and Fatty, respectively. Two dedicated Hong Kong cops out to nail a drug kingpin. Though they have the best intentions, their inability to follow procedure would make the L.A.P.D. cringe. Their efficiency in infuriating their superior officers and beating the tar out of suspects, however, is unparalleled.

There's not much else to explain as far as plot. Just shenanigans and fights, really. There is more to it but I'm certainly not going to get into it! The important thing to remember is that a lot of the gags are actually funny and that ALL of the fights are good. Karl Maka doesn't perform any real martial arts, but handles himself very well and is believable. Sammo, on the other hand, is a spin-kicking machine! I've ALWAYS been impressed by his size-to-athleticism ratio and, having an idea of what to expect, was still surprised! He lays off the acrobatics of his younger days but leaves no doubt he could still perform them if called upon! And yes, this is one of the films where Sammo adopts a handful of Bruce Lee mannerisms, first exhibited in "Enter the Fat Dragon" (1978).

The DVD from Mei Ah Entertainment has good picture quality but NO English dub or special features. The language selection consists of Cantonese or Mandarin with subtitles available in Chinese (traditional or simplified) and English. If you enjoy martial arts films in general and Sammo Hung films in particular then this is for you! Lacks only a good, lengthy one-on-one fight. Otherwise, pretty groovy and recommended.

EXCELLENT! 2 Sept. 2011

Sammo's impersonation of Bruce Lee is excellent! Sammo is truly the best imitator of Bruce. The comedy was good in this movie as well. If you are a Sammo hung fan this is a must see!
