I just can't bring myself to call "The Prodigal Son" great, even if it has greatness within it. The story is too disjointed, the comedy is a mixed bag and the kung fu...well, the kung fu is awesome. It's directed by Sammo Hung and stars Yuen Biao. IT BETTER BE FREAKING AWESOME. But it is and that's what we ask for, so "The Prodigal Son" is a success.
