Movie Info

Jackie Chan returns in one of his greatest roles in this action-comedy sequel to his 1978 Hong Kong blockbuster Drunken Master. Wong Fei Hong (Chan) is a young master of the martial art of "drunken boxing," in which fighters use alcohol to blind themselves to pain and release the angry brawler within; with the right amount of drinks under his belt, Hong can become a furious one-man army. Hong accompanies his father (Ti Lung) on a voyage to China, where they purchase a precious supply of ginseng.

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.

Jackie Chan's physical ingenuity brings with it an enormous history as a naturally gifted storyteller whose development dates back to his life as a childhood actor.

One of Jackie Chan's best, but not for everyone.

Just enough story to be interesting and with lots of personality to stand out.

Anita Mui all but pulls a heist herself in every scene she's in, but make no mistake. This is Chan's movie, and he holds his own, whether it's using his comedic talents to feign drunkenness or strike a goofy face, or showing off those impressive martial a

While you might not always appreciate the historical aspects of the story, you will definitely find Chan's physical acumen amazing.

This 1994 sequel... includes Chan's exhilarating battle with a horde of ax-wielding thugs and a classic 20-minute finale fight that's set in a steel mill.

Um dos melhores filmes da carreira de Chan e a comprovação definitiva de que ele é o resultado de uma combinação improvável (e maravilhosa) de Buster Keaton, Gene Kelly e Bruce Lee.

I'm extremely unhappy when one of my HK favorites is re-released, re-titled and re-packaged as an English-dubbed Jackie Chan vehicle for American audiences to ostensibly enjoy.

Suffers from some of worst problems of the martial arts genre: bad dubbing, bad soundtrack, chaotic plot, no character development ... but it has great fights and stunts.

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.
