Audience Reviews for Come Drink With Me

Unintentionally hilarious English subtitles and occasionally clumsy editing aside (consider it part of the charm), Come Drink with Me is a fun, old-fashioned martial arts romp. The story is simple. A gang of bandits kidnap the son of a governor, in a bid to exchange him for their captured and soon to be executed leader. Golden Swallow, a fierce (and pretty) warrior and sister to the captured man, comes to free him. Lots of sword-fighting ensues. Oh, and she's aided by a beggar known alternatively as the Drunken Cat and the Drunk Hero, which is cool for reasons that surely don't have to be explained.

If you enjoyed other Shaw Brothers films, Come Drink with Me will be a pretty sure bet for you. Maybe the fights aren't as satisfying compared to the complex choreography of today's martial arts epics, but it's got a classic charm that some will eat up. And many of the most revered martial arts movies of today were clearly influenced by what was done here.

With singing heroes, cross-dressing heroines, narcissistic villains, and fantastical action choreographed like dance, the film launched a new wave of Hong Kong filmmaking and you can feel its' influence in everything from Bruce Lee in the 1970s to Jackie Chan's Drunken Master to the Tsui Hark new wave of high energy, special effects adventures in the 80's.

Cheng Pei Pei is stunning in the role as Golden Swallow, a young woman on a mission to free her brother who has been taken hostage by a group of ruthless bandits, while retaining poise, elegance and coolness when delivering some deadly kung fu action. Rent this before considering Tarantino's remake coming soon....

the first hong kong martial arts film from shaw bros, directed by king hu. highly influential and entertaining; this was the inspiration for crouching tiger, hidden dragon. beautiful cheng pei pei is badass as gold swallow, who defeats the tiger mob with the help of a drunken master. marred a little for me by some cheesy effects in the second half and the subtitles could use an update. definitely one of the classiest of the shaw bros features. tarantino is remaking this.

Interesting turning point in Shaw Brothers (and martial arts films in general), combining both realistic martial arts with the fantasy superpower martial arts. Influencial and entertaining.
