Movie Info

Hong Kong filmmaker Lau Kar-leung followed up the outstanding Drunken Master II by directing this mostly unrelated martial arts comedy which still manages to garner a few laughs despite its dubious reputation and the absence of Jackie Chan. In Chan's place is comedian Willie Chi as Wong Fei-hong, who is assigned -- along with his partner, Wong Kei-ying (Adam Cheng) -- to protect a Manchu princess named Sum Yu (Michelle Lee). Princess Yu is being hunted both by the malefic White Lotus Cult (actually run by white people in this spoof) and by nationalists loyal to Dr. Sun Yat-sen. Fei-hong receives additional help from a wine merchant, Uncle Yan (played by the film's director), who instructs him in special martial arts techniques. Unfortunately, the Manchu leaders fall in with the White Lotus Cult and relinquish Princess Yu to them to be ritually sacrificed, causing Fei-hong to undertake a daring rescue mission. Simon Yam appears as a gay villain aboard a bus, and the supporting cast also includes such familiar genre veterans as Andy Lau, Gordon Lau, and William Ho.

Audience Reviews for Drunken Master III

*1/2 (out of four) This might be some people's cup of tea, but not me. While I do enjoy a good martial arts film on occasion. This one fails to be one of those.

Beware. Poor martial arts, bad script, and nothing to do with the first two films.

Without Jackie Chan in this prequel film, but Andy Lau, Adam Cheng, Willie Chi and Chia Liang Liu are incredible in their martial arts sequences against the villians at the final scenes. And this is so hilarious funny with Michelle Reis who makes plenty of cheeky in her character.
