Fist of Fury 1991 is a 1991 Hong Kong action-comedy film directed by Gordon Chan and starring Stephen Chow, Kenny Bee, and Corey Yuen. The film is a loose remake of Bruce Lee's 1972 classic Fist of Fury. Set in a small village in a remote part of China, the film follows Sing (Stephen Chow), a young man who trains obsessively in kung fu. Sing is determined to follow in the footsteps of his idol, Bruce Lee, and become the greatest martial artist in the world. However, his skills are put to the test when he gets caught up in a gang war between the Axe Gang and the equally fierce Singing Clan.

With the help of his friend and mentor, Fung (Kenny Bee), Sing sets out to defeat the Axe Gang and save his village from their evil clutches. Along the way, he meets a number of colorful characters, including a beautiful singer named Dream (Cheung Man) and her brother, Dragon (Yuen Wah), who happens to be a former kung fu master turned drunkard.

The film is packed with high-flying action sequences and hilarious comedy bits. Stephen Chow, who had already established himself as a comedic force in Hong Kong cinema, is in top form here, delivering one-liners and physical gags with precision and charm. Kenny Bee, best known as the lead singer of the 1980s pop group The Wynners, also shines as Sing's wisecracking sidekick.

The film's action scenes are choreographed by Corey Yuen, one of Hong Kong's top martial arts choreographers. Yuen, who had previously worked on films such as The Transporter and Lethal Weapon 4, brings his trademark acrobatic fight scenes to Fist of Fury 1991, with Sing taking on hordes of bad guys using his lightning-fast kicks and punches.

Despite its comedic tone, the film also deals with serious themes such as discrimination and the importance of standing up for oneself. Sing's struggle against the Axe Gang can be seen as a metaphor for the fight against oppression and injustice.

Fist of Fury 1991 was a box office success upon its release in Hong Kong, and helped to further cement Stephen Chow's status as a superstar in Asia. The film has since gained a cult following among martial arts and comedy fans, and spawned a number of sequels and spin-offs.

Overall, Fist of Fury 1991 is a highly entertaining mix of kung fu action and comedy, with a talented cast and expertly choreographed fight scenes. It is a must-see for fans of Hong Kong cinema, and a great introduction to the work of Stephen Chow and Corey Yuen.
