Audience Reviews for Shi di chu ma (The Young Master)


Two thumb up! What a wonderfully choreographed film Jackie Chan ever made. First off the fight scenes are all very good, but the final fight is more amazing. This comedy is mixed nicely with everything elese and sits well even within the final 15 minutes fight scene at the end.

Jackie's directorial debut already showed some of the elements that would become a trademark in future films. The film suffers from some pacing issues, and the plot is nearly invisible, but the action segments are great and easily stand the test of time. Good ol martial arts fun, just don't go expecting a Project A or Police Story.
