Still the best...


I have to say this is without a doubt my favorite of Jackie chan's early films. I think it demonstrated the humor and well done action that is a mark of chan's career, excellent stuff.

It really is great.

Blood is thicker than water, that's why it doesn't work well in squirt guns.

Drunken Master is better.

I love this film so much, I always make my mates watch it and they love. Its great hearing the awfully dubbed version on vhs! I've just started to watch Drunken Master after years of wanting the film, I finally bought it and loving it so far :D

That's an opinion (and I disagree with it). Here's a fact, though: the young master is better!

reply

good early work, but the sequence is too much of a team gymnastics than kung fu. Jet Li's debut "shaolin temple" was much better done.

reply

It definitely contained one of the meanest, baddest villains in old skool kung history, in my opinion!

great shapes too!


Bullshyt MR han-man!!

It his directorial debut, and it is blindingly creative for a first attempt. If you compare it to the Wei Lo films, it's in a whole other league.

Do not write here

It's the first film he directed and so it has that clever playfulness that is so well done. I think it's terrific as well.

The camera-work is pretty clever in some areas too, and it's a shame that Jackie Chan doesn't get a bit more credit for being a talented director.

Never let your sense of morals prevent you from doing what is right.

This is Chan's best film when he was younger. Snake in the Eagle's Shadow as also very good back then. Drunken Master and Drunken Master 2 are Chan best movies when he got older.
