Heeere's Jackie, ageless and great, before refitting himself to Western specs.

A fleet, enjoyable Jackie Chan romp.

Chan has always seemed like a silent-screen virtuoso self-catapulted into modern times.

The extended fight scenes [have been] justly hailed by aficionados as classics of the genre.

A spectacularly silly comic epic in which almost every known camera trick, stunt and fight choreography known to the genre is squished into one story.

Audience Reviews for The Legend of Drunken Master (Jui kuen II) (Drunken Fist II)

A successful sequel concerning a martial-arts master (Jackie Chan), who is at his best fighting wise only when he is drunk, and how he accidentally steals some valuable Chinese artifacts, all of which criminals are after. The plot isn't much, and sometimes the movie is goofy to the point of being annoying, but the martial-arts sequences are hands-down the best I have seen in a movie. It is an entirely familiar set-up and the ending is never in doubt, but for what it is worth, this is a fun movie worth a view simply for the stunning fight sequences, especially a loaded finale which only gets better. Chan is a likable personality, and it is easy to see why he became such a big star in America due to films like this.

Your usual martial arts movie affair: dubbed voices, oppression running left and right, using the art of kung fu for peace, horrible narrative, etc. But this is undoubtedly Jackie Chan's greatest choreography put into film, ever.
