Writer-director Steve Oedekerk (THE NUTTY PROFESSOR, ACE VENTURA: WHEN NATURE CALLS) acquired the little known 1976 Hong Kong karate flick TIGER & CRANE FISTS, then seamlessly blended portions of the film with new material he has directed to create a wild, off-the-wall, comedy feature film. Oedekerk wrote, directed and stars in ENTER THE FIST, placing himself digitally into the old film, re-dubbing the characters, as well as shooting new scenes.

Oedekerk plays 'The Chosen One', a karate-kid with the outlook of a 21st century surf-dude! Destined from birth to be a super-strong warrior, he hones his skills in secret, helped by his mentor Master Tang, waiting for the moment to avenge his parents' brutal murder at the iron claws of evil Master Pain (aka Betty!)

Aided by Whoa, the superwoman with the curious physique... fists fly as 'The Chosen One' throws high-powered high-kicks at a fierce-fighting kung fu cow, a jealous assassin who 'screams like a wussy', and a sudden invasion by French aliens! The insanity heightens as his final showdown with Master Pain brings the story to its hysterical climax.
