Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

Though it wasn't Jackie Chan's first film, Drunken Master is the film that cemented his stardom. Jackie plays the rebellious son of a kung fu master. To teach Jackie the value of discipline, his father apprentices him to another master named So Hi, who has a unique "drunken" fighting style. Jackie chafes at So Hi's rigorous exercises and runs away--only to be brutally humiliated at the hands of a hired killer named Thunderleg. Chastened, Jackie becomes So Hi's devoted student. He soon discovers he will need everything he's learned when Thunderleg is hired to kill his father. In Drunken Master, Jackie is only beginning to cultivate his mixture of action and comedy; here the emphasis is on kung fu acrobatics. But the kung fu is astounding. The final fight is dizzying and amazingly choreographed by director Yuen Woo-ping (now famous as the fight choreographer for The Matrix). --Bret Fetzer

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Jackie's Best Dec 15 2004
Format:DVD
"Druken Master," the film that cemented Jackie Chan's stardom in Hong Kong, is still one of his best. This veeery broad kung fu comedy has a goofy, relaxed atmosphere to it that makes it enjoyable to watch. Also, the fight scenes (admittedly what really matters in a movie like this) are expertly choreographed, and a genuine thrill to watch. The melodramatic (if almost non-existant) conflict between Chan and bad guy Hwang Jang Lee only adds to the fun. Plus, Simon Yuen as the old master was never better.
The DVD from Columbia is in its original 2.35:1 aspect ratio, after many years of faded pan-and-scan videos. The picture is a tad scratchy, although it's without a doubt the best this movie has looked in a long time. Thankfully, in addition to the English dub, the original Cantonese language track is included (although sections that were apparently lost have been replaced by the English). As a special feature, an absolutely fascinating commentary by Hong Kong film historian Rick Meyers and Jackie Chan's autobiography co-author Jeff Yang is included. It covers just about everything one could possibly want to know about "Druken Master."

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst transfer to dvd ever Nov. 10 2003
Format:DVD
yes its a kung fu classic and Jackie Chan's personal favorite movie, but the video and audio quality are unwatchable, seek out the remastered edition and skip this one.

Format:VHS Tape
This movie RULES!!! warning:IM NOT KIDDING!
Im telling you the true! this movie is not like the other Kung-Fu movies that were made in the 70's like Fearless Hyenas, Five Fingers of Death, Shaoling Collection and the Bruce Lee's movies. THIS one have cool cimematoghraphic, AWESOME fight choreography, good story and storyline and it have MANY long fights.
I repeat: AWESOME fight choreoghraphy!!! you won't be disappointed.
P.S: I like the sequel than this original movie but the two of them are a MUST BUY, I can't believe that the second one was originally made in 1979 (one year after the original), I guess that nobody can underestimate the 70's.
Sayonara,adios,goodbye.

Format:DVD
DRUNKEN MASTER is one of Jackie Chan's all time greats (the film itself is a 5 star film, only this DVD gets a 3 star rating). He plays a naughty little rascal named Huang Fei Hung (yes, the same character Kwan Tak Hing made famous in a series of nearly 100 films and later by Jet Li in the ONCE UPON A TIME IN CHINA series of films) who's sent by his father to the famous Sam the Seed (the old Drunken Master himself, Simon Yuen) to learn discipline. Huang Fei Hung can't take the torturous training and runs away, but after getting beat up and humiliated by a wicked kicking Master (he burns the kid's pants, badmouths his father's kung fu, and makes him crawl between his legs like a dog) he quickly repents and begs Sam the Seed to take him back. The film is a delightful mixture of kung fu, comedy, and drama with enough dazzling displays of martial arts and acrobatics to keep viewing fresh time after time.
My gripe with this DVD is that the English language track is NOT the wonderfully fun one released previously on VHS featuring those loveably familiar English dubbed kung fu movie voices of the 1970s-80s. Some people hate those English dub jobs and will always prefer the original Chinese language tracks (which fortunately ARE on the DVD with choice of subtitles), but there are those of us who also enjoy watching the old English dubbed versions for their sheer camp value and cartoon-like energy. Those same voices (found on almost all exported kung fu films of that time period) have become like family members (the ones you want to have visit!).

5.0 out of 5 stars 2nd best old kung-fu movie of Jackie Chan Oct. 4 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
"Drunken master", the Jackie Chan movie I thought is not his best, in terms of old kung-fu flicks. Snake in the eagle's shadow take the honor. In spite of it, the movie is better than most old kung-fu movies, because it has a higher budget allocation & big movie star, that is Jackie Chan. Hence, the movie turn out with a high production quality, decent story, andvery, very exceptional kung-fu fight scenes. The fight scenes, in fact is much better than seen on the movie Snake in the eagle's shadow. For examples, Jackie training sequences using the drunken kung-fu, his fight with the stick master is sensationally choreographed, his first encounter with Hwang Jang Lee, the main antagonist where he was completely humiliated, and his last fight again vs. Hwang Jang Lee, this time using his drunken kung-fu.
What really goes to Drunken master is about the high quality value of the kung-fu fights , and they are indeed beautiful to watch. But, Snake in the eagle's shadow is really Jackie's best kung-fu movie ( including his more modern action movies or kung- fu movies like Rumble in the bronx and plice story), it has a better overall quality & really, really has the best story in all of kung-fu movies. It is touching, moving, nostalgic & dramatical in terms of it's genre, with more-than- average kung-fu fights.
Overall, a good DVD to own, just rank below Snake in the eagle's shadow in terms of his best movie !
