When this guy, Gordon Liu, was in the movie, you knew it was going to be good.

didnt realize he played the front man of the crazy 88 in KB1 and pai mei in KB2 (the very same villain he defeated!) until years later

back to the topic though... the opportunity to see someone that looks like u to be the protagonist (esp. after watching your own kind on the silver screen either dying early or being nothing but the bad guy's underling for YEARS) was most seriously the biggest get off. then pile on the can't-fail ingredients such as the underdog usurping the established power, coming of age, and pseudo-enlightenment that's real easy to swallow and requires little to no thinking, etc.
