This is a strange movie. After The Gods Must Be Crazy II, Jamie Uys sold the rights to further productions to Billy Chan in Hong Kong. This movie was filmed in Cantonese (dubbed into English in this version) and combined the African bush venue with Mr. Chan's earlier concept of the Chinese Hopping Vampire - yes, vampire.
It's not the first, but one of the earliest Chinese Hopping Vampire movies. Lam Ching Ying who plays the Taoist master in this movie made almost a career of fighting vampires. He really does a fine job of playing this role straight faced with a mixture of deadpan face as he does magic. After all, you need magic to control vampires.
Do not confuse this with the best movie you've ever seen, but if you like strange slapstick comedy with the same culture shock effect of the earlier movies, but this time it is the Chinese monk trying to get along in the desert culture. Well, you can pretty well bet your friends haven't seen it.
In addition, like with the earlier Gods Must Be Crazy movies, there are several alternative story lines. There's the cameo appearance of Bruce Lee, and the British lady who has captured the native girls as slaves, then there is the diamond mine, the coke bottles. Yes, the coke bottles, In this movie, and in the next two (yes, there's a IV and a V - In fact consistent with The Gods Must be Crazy, there are two entirely different movies that claim to be #4).
In this movie, there's this ancient Chinese mummy being auctioned in London. The master wakes up the mummy and they are trying to take it back to the ancestral burial ground in China, the plane goes astray, and they bail out, right over the little bushman's village - of course.
In summary you can say that this is an African/Chinese culture shock, martial arts, slapstick, Chinese Hopping Vampire comedy.
