Snake In The Ghosts Shadow is a martial arts film from 1976, directed by Yuen Woo-ping. The movie is set in early 20th-century China and follows the story of the hapless protagonist Chan Chuen (Jackie Chan) who works as a janitor in a kung fu school. Chuen is constantly taunted and mistreated by the kung fu students who use his chores as a way to test their skills.

One day, while Chuen is out collecting firewood, he encounters an old beggar who teaches him the basics of snake style kung fu. Chuen is delighted with his newfound skills and begins to incorporate them into his daily chores. However, Chuen's newfound skills draw the attention of the evil kung fu master, Lord Sheng Kuan (Yuen Siu Tien), who is interested in stealing the secrets of the snake style kung fu for himself.

Lord Sheng Kuan sends his henchmen to attack and defeat the snake style master, but they are unable to do so. In desperation, he turns to the even more powerful eagle claw style kung fu, which he believes will allow him to defeat the snake style master.

Meanwhile, Chuen's teacher dies at the hands of Lord Sheng Kuan's henchmen, leaving Chuen to take revenge. With the help of his new snake style kung fu, Chuen sets out to avenge his master's death and defeat Lord Sheng Kuan.

The movie is filled with stunning choreography, acrobatics, and fight scenes that showcase the talents of the actors. Jackie Chan is particularly impressive, with his trademark smile, comedic timing, and awe-inspiring stunts. The film's action is brought to life with quick camera movement and sound effects, making the fight scenes feel intense and visceral.

The film also touches on themes of morality, loyalty, and respect, with Chan Chuen learning the importance of these virtues as he navigates the dangerous world of kung fu. The role of the old beggar who teaches Chuen the snake style kung fu is also significant, as the character is a nod to the traditional Chinese belief that wisdom and skill can come from unexpected sources.

Overall, Snake In The Ghosts Shadow is a classic martial arts movie that showcases the talents of its cast and crew. The combination of stunning fight scenes, engaging story, and interesting characters make it a must-watch for fans of the genre.
