  1. msmichel's rating of the film Drunken Master

    Jackie Chan is simply fantastic here in this early starring vehicle that plays to his strengths both comic and athletic. Despite story and pacing problems the film sings with exceptional fight choreography.

  2. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Drunken Master

    Blu-Ray. As a dilettante, I've always thought that if you like the martial arts genre, you've got only two options: aesthetically pleasing productions like Wang Zhimou's films or B movies intended for the late Bruce Lee fans with lots of fights and idiotic screenplays. I know more now. There's also the Jackie Chan way. Masterpiece.

  3. Kreg's rating of the film Drunken Master

    Although plot elements are slow, the characters, comedy and action all take a front seat. Seeing this, it's no wonder why Jackie Chan became the star he is.The restaurant chef Gorilla made me laugh out loud, and I was wowed by the fight choreography every time. A lot of this went over my head as a kid, I'm glad I gave it more time.

  4. Andre Flickatina's rating of the film Drunken Master

    jackie closes the show with a textbook elbow drop

  5. Pedderrs's rating of the film Drunken Master

    I was underwhelmed by this highly rated Kung Fu comedy. Jackie Chan's nimbleness is extraordinary and most of the comedy elements work well enough, but the repetitiveness of the choreography threatened to lull me to sleep. The story is no more than an excuse to have nondescript characters face off against one another; predictable throughout and choc-full of elementary level dialogue. The 1994 sequel is superior.

  6. Elephants Gerald's rating of the film Drunken Master

    This movie is like a porno: the tiny bits of plot limp along between the stuff you really came to see, and the different character interactions are just excuses to see varieties of people get it on with each other. Add the scratchy celluloid, warped sound & vulgarity, DRUNKEN MASTER beams you to the sticky back row of a 70s grindhouse. Of course, it also helps that the fight scenes are balletic, surreal high art.

  7. Gonçalo Rosas's rating of the film Drunken Master

    (Generous) 7 - Simple, expertly-choreographed entertainment, and a herald of much greater things to come from Jackie Chan.

  8. anarresti's rating of the film Drunken Master

    Ok. There's jeet kune do. And then there's the other stuff. You gotta choose the path.

  9. flobota's rating of the film Drunken Master

    a nice mix of the old traditional way of hong kong kung fu movies and a very young jackie chan already showing the future of his 30 year career.
