The Legend Of Drunken Master (1994)
Director: Lau Kar Leung, Jackie Chan (uncredited)
Starring: Jackie Chan, Anita Mui, Felix Wong and Lung Ti
He’ll do just about any death-defying stunt to please his fans. He hung from a ladder attached to an airborne helicopter, dropped off a clock tower multiple times and even crab walked over burning hot coals. Not one to rely on digital effects, Jackie Chan performs stunts that are considered far too dangerous or physically impossible for any other lead actor.
Having never watched Hollywood hit movies like Rush Hour and Shanghai Noon, my newly found appreciation for Jackie Chan comes from discovering the cult classic The Legend of Drunken Master, the follow up to 1978’s Drunken Master.
The Legend of Drunken Master is an entertaining mix of old-school kung fu fighting and good-natured humour. At times, it’s amusingly silly however it’s not without dramatic moments that carry some weight. The fantastic action scenes are the highlight of this movie about an irresponsible young man who learns some hard lessons on his way to becoming a folk hero.
