The story line of The Legend of Drunken Master is about the misadventures of Wong Fei Hung. In this case, he gets involved with the affairs of the British consul, and they are smuggling ancient Chinese artifacts out of the country. It is great to watch Jackie Chan battle people in The Legend of Drunken Master because he uses a martial arts style called Drunken Boxing. Of course, what makes the movie so funny is that he becomes a better fighter whenever he consumes alcohol, but there is a twist. If he consumes too much alcohol he becomes very sluggish and unable to fight. As you can guess this is a very fine line of how much alcohol he can consume. Either way this is a movie that did very good when it comes to how much money it made overall. In fact, when it first came out in Hong Kong it grossed 40 million dollars. Later on when it came out in America as The Legend of Drunken Master it made a total of 11 million. Which is not very good, even though it did get some great reviews. I guess it does not matter because overall this is a great movie, and Jackie Chan went on to be a great hit in both America and Hong Kong.
Jackie Chan is always a lot of fun to watch on the big screen because of all the stuff that he can do. If you have ever watched a Jackie Chan movie they all have about the same feel to them. Of course, The Legend of Drunken Master has its own feel all together. This is a movie that you are going to have to put into your movie collection because it is just an overall great movie.
