| Spiritual Kung Fu (1978)
Director: Lo Wei
Jackie plays an orphan who is raised in a Shaolin
Temple. When he is caught neglecting his studies he is punished by being
made to guard the sacred books. That night a masked man breaks in and
steals the book containing details for one of the most invincible styles
of kung fu. The only style that can defeat it is the lost art known as
the "Five Fists" style.
The Shaolin temple is in disarray and the Abbot
goes into solitary to repent for the sins of the monks (for losing the
book). Jackie is also subjected to spending more nights guarding the
books. One night a meteor hits and all the books are dislodged freeing
five rather odd looking ghosts. As it turns out they are the masters of
the "Five Fists" kung fu and see Jackie as the chosen one so they take
him as their pupil.
Meanwhile a mysterious man is going around
defeating all the kung fu masters using the style of the stolen book and
the only man that stands a chance of defeating him is Jackie who,
combined with the skills of the ghosts, must rescue the Shaolin Temple.
