Jackie Chan Favorites
Double Feature!
DRUNKEN MASTER / THE LEGEND OF DRUNKEN MASTER
DRUNKEN MASTER
JUI KUEN
1978, Sony Repertory, 111 min, Hong Kong, Dir: Yuen Woo-ping

This irreverent take on Chinese folk hero Wong Fei-hung (played to perfection by Jackie Chan) is one of the most wildly entertaining kung fu movies ever made. To teach him some discipline, the troublemaking Wong is sent to his uncle (Yuen Siu-tien), an exacting martial arts expert known as the Drunken Master - a man with a reputation for crippling his students. As DRUNKEN MASTER builds to its climactic showdown, its slapstick is as brilliantly choreographed as its fight scenes. English dubbed version.


THE LEGEND OF DRUNKEN MASTER
JUI KUEN II
1994, Park Circus, 102 min, Hong Kong, Dir: Liu Chia-Liang

In this frenetic mix of martial arts, intrigue and humor, Jackie Chan reprises his role as Wong Fei-hung, a master of “drunken boxing.” When Wong stumbles into a plot to smuggle Chinese artifacts out of the country, he must battle not only hired thugs but also his father’s (Ti Lung) insistence that he refrain from drinking and fighting. As tough as its 1978 predecessor was to top, the jaw-dropping final action sequence does it, earning a place on Time magazine’s “All-TIME 100” list of great films. English dubbed version.
