The Yuen Clan kids may not get top billing for Seven Little Valiant Fighters, reserving the honor for action star Yu Kai, but they more than carry the film on their small but acrobatic backs. They act, they clown but mostly they perform, tumbling in and out of scenes and fighting different kinds of creatures, from men and women thrice their size to a ferocious monster that breathes fire. Watching the film is loads of fun to begin with, but extra pleasure comes from recognizing Sammo Hung, Jackie Chan, Yuen Wah and Ng Ming-choi from among the hyperactive munchkins.
