  • HKFanatic's rating of the film The Young Master

    Compared to other Golden Harvest efforts of this era, this is not quite as good as "Drunken Master" or "Knockabout." However, it's definitely worth enduring through the slow parts and more slapstick moments for the final fight scene, which seems to go on for 20 minutes. I've never seen anything like it. Jackie takes the beating of a lifetime but somehow manages to out-wind his older, more experienced opponent.
