"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 !
