Full Synopsis

Chop-suey, a kitchen assistant who is a fan of Bruce Lee, finds himself embroiled in a battle against an extortion gang when his aunt is unable to pay the protection fees in time. When tragedy strikes and with the lack of evidence for the police to make any arrest, Chop-suey takes matters into his own hands and fights the gang. With his rescued companions and armed with the documents that would expose the crimes of the gang, they make a run to escape the pursuit by Jackson, the gang leader.

Restoration Notes

The restoration of They Call Him Chop-Suey was made possible using an original colour picture negative and an original English soundtrack negative. The film was produced by Bobby A. Suarez, who directed They Call Her…Cleopatra Wong three years later.
