''Iron Monkey'' is 1993 {{Prequel}} to the smash hit Martial Arts film series of ''OnceUponATimeInChina'' starring Jet Li, starring Yu Rongguang and DonnieYen. The premise can be summed up in four words: [[JustLikeRobinHood Robin Hood]]. [[RecycledInSpace In]] China.

So, while Yang is busy [[CrowningMomentOfFunny patching up the guards he was beating the crap out of last night and making polite conversation with the man obsessed with catching him]], a new doctor, Wong Kei-ying, arrives in town and is the victim of an attempted mugging. Wong Kei Ying is one of the Ten Tigers of Canton, the ten greatest warriors of RealLife 19th Century Southern China. Travelling with him is his young son [[OnceUponATimeInChina Wong]] [[DrunkenMaster Fei-hung]], who will one day inherit his father's Canton Clinic of ''Po Chi Lam'' and his title as the Tenth Tiger.

Making it less snarky and sarcastic.
The story is [[BlatantLies rather unremarkable]]; a doctor, Yang Tianchun, who is also a master martial artist, runs the only clinic in town where he overcharges rich patients and offers free care to the poor, by day. By night, he dons the Iron Monkey costume and goes around beating up corrupt monks and stealing money from the greedy politicians. [[FolkHero Hero to the poor,]] menace to [[CorruptBureaucrat the rich]]. So, while Yang is busy [[CrowningMomentOfFunny patching up the guards he was beating the crap out of last night and making polite conversation with the man obsessed with catching him]], a new doctor, Wong Kei-ying, arrives in town and is the victim of an attempted mugging. However, he TOO is a master martial artist and promptly hands the muggers' asses to them. Unfortunately, guards see this and assume Wong is the monkey, so they arrest him. At his trial, however, the REAL monkey shows up and wreaks havoc, and Wong fights with him, managing to stalemate. So, instead, the government hires Wong to take down the monkey. As added incentive, they [[KickTheDog take his son hostage]] and [[RaceAgainstTheClock give him one week to do it]]. (His son, by the way, is a young boy named [[OnceUponATimeInChina Wong]] [[DrunkenMaster Fei-hung]]. It's implied that the Iron Monkey [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wong_Fei-hung inspired the real-life folk hero]].) After this, there's a change of BigBad, a BadAss team-up and some real crazy [[PrecisionFStrike shit]].
