The Thundering Mantis is a 1980 Cantonese-language Action Comedy film directed by Teddy Yip and produced by Stanley Chow under the banner of Goldig Films Ltd. in collaboration with East Asia Film Co. Ah Chi (Ka-Yan Leung) is obsessed with the martial arts and, often than not, his kung-fu clowning gets him into trouble. One day he gets into a fight defending the locals from a violent thug who turns out to be an enforcer for tong boss Hsia (Eddie Ko) of the notorious Jade Brotherhood. In retaliation, Hsia forces Chi's martial arts master to expel him. Masterless and working for a fish vendor, Chi meets a crafty kid (Yat Lung Wong), whose uncle Chow Tung (Simon Yuen) is a master of the Insane Mantis style. Though the crotchety old man refuses to teach Chi his technique, Chi picks up what he can in secret. Master Chow soon relents after Chi is badly beaten in yet another battle with Hsia's goons. Insane Mantis instruction now begins in earnest with great acrobatic acuity. Eventually, however, Hsia and his lackeys ambush and kill both the fish vendor and the old master which, in turn, completes Ah Chi's descent into total insanity. Emulating praying mantis behavior, Ah Chi unleashes an outright cannibalistic rage directed against the Jade Brotherhood's big boss himself! Written by Neva Friedenn. The thundering mantis stars Bryan Leung in the lead role along with an ensemble cast including Cheng Feng, Eddy Ko Hung, Ka-yan Leung, Yi Lung Huang, Feng Cheng and Fu-chien Chang. The screenplay is written by Cheung San-yee. The music was composed by Stanley Chow. Cinematography was done by Cheung Tak-kon and editing by Wong Chau-kwai and Cheung Kwok-kuen. The film has a running time of 85 minutes. It was released on 3rd January 1980. Distribution rights for the film were acquired by Goldig Films.
