Audience Reviews for Shaolin Drunken Monk

Interesting enough, the story was a little hard to follow. The hero captures the heart. Surprise ending. Costumes ok, acting probably ok? but dubbing was HILARIOUS! Good fight scenes though.

He is now out for revenge on the killer of his parents. Chung puts together a diabolical plan that involves kidnapping the tyrant’s daughter, training under a new master to perfect his martial arts, and challenging the tyrant to a duel to the death.[/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=#000000] [/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=#000000]“You bastard!”[/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=#000000]“Now you can get to heaven sooner.”[/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=#000000] [/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=#000000]Chan Hung Au, director of Secret of the Shaolin Poles, Three Swordsman, and 36 Chamber: The Final Encounter, delivers Shaolin Drunken Monk. The storyline for this picture was appropriate for this genre of film. The acting and portrayal of the characters were solid in this picture. The true star of this picture is Gordon Liu. Au was greatly assisted by the choreography of Liu Chia-Liang in the making of this picture.[/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=#000000] [/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=#000000]“Where are you from?”[/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=#000000]“I come from hell.”[/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=#000000] [/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=#000000]The waterfall training opening, the opening fight on the wooden path with Liu, the prisoner pissing herself, the fight in the restaurant, the fight at the school to save the young master, the mother killing herself and her son being thrown off the boat, the kid stealing the wine, Liu killing the man in blue, Liu and the one armed servant killing the man in red, Liu versus the servant with the chain, the hole in the ground trap, the fights on the beach, and the suicide at the end were amongst the better portions of the film.[/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=#000000] [/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=#000000]“Who the hell could that bold bastard be?”[/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=#000000] [/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=#000000]Shaolin Drunken Monk is an entertaining picture for those who adore Gordon Liu, Martial Arts pictures, and Liu Chia-Liang films. By no means is it the greatest work by Liu or Chia-Liang, but it remains a positive picture on both of their resumes. Shaolin Drunken Monk marks one of four pictures currently released under the Master Killer collection by Tai Seng rather than the wider known Shaw Brothers productions.[/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=#000000] [/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=#000000]“Such a poor, pitiful fool.”[/color][/size][/font] [font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=#000000][/color][/size][/font] [size=3][color=#000000][font=Times New Roman]Grade: B [/font][/color][/size]
