Strong contender for Jackie's best

Regarded by many people to contain the pinnacle of Chan's physical powers (at the late age of 40 in his life),DRUNKEN MASTER II was belatedly released in the US six years after it was made, after Chan had become a star over there. This much we know. But what of the film? Overall, the story and characters stand somewhere in about the middle of Chan's filmography. The first half of the film harks back to his earlier action-comedy days like the original DRUNKEN MASTER, except with a much higher budget so everything looks like it did in PROJECT A PART II now. The script offers a few choice gags but it's very much par for the course. Even the action is fairly straightforward, and of the cast only martial arts veteran Ti Lung makes anything of an impact as Jackie's straight-laced dad with Anita Mui in support as his stepmother.

At around the hour mark we get the first signs of greatness with the arrival of the "axe gang", hundreds of hoods who attempt to destroy our hero in a tavern. The action is fast and furious with Jackie using tables and bamboo canes to fight off numerous attackers, whilst director Chia-Liang Liu also gets in on the action! However, this does not prepare us for the finale of the movie, a twenty-minute battle in a steelworks factory. Hands down, the finale of this film contains the best action Chan has ever put on screen. He is nimble, funny, and does some great stunts with props and fire, so that everything looks dangerous. The fights are hard-hitting, and super-kicker Ken Lo is incredible as his chief opponent who comes out of nowhere to fight to the finish. A brilliant and protracted martial arts fight plays out, impeccably choreographed and definitely the best of Jackie's long career in terms of style, excitement, and pure incredible adrenaline-pumping superhuman manoeuvres. The ending alone makes this classic material and a strong contender for Jackie's best ever movie.

fun Jackie Chan

Wong Fei Hung (Jackie Chan),his father Dr. Wong Kei Ying, and their servant Tso are taking the train. Fei Hung hides the ginseng in British consul's suitcase to avoid paying tax. On the train, he goes to take back the ginseng and encounters someone stealing a similar box from the suitcase. The boxes are switched after a fight and Fei Hung mistakenly takes the Jade Seal of the Emperor. The British starts searching the train. Government official Cheung Hok Leung (Andy Lau) is able to save them from the search. It's a screwball attempt to cover up the missing ginseng with the help of stepmom Ling (Anita Mui) when they get back home.

Jackie Chan is at his most fun. He is Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton combined. It's got kung fu action which he always adds his special brand of easy charm. It's got some great actors like the hilarious Anita Mui. The production level is quite good. The camera work looks sharp. This is a kung fu movie with a fun comedic sense and compelling story.

One of the Greatest Martial Arts Films?

A young martial artist is caught between respecting his pacifist father's wishes or stopping a group of disrespectful foreigners from stealing precious artifacts.

In 2005, "Drunken Master II" was named one of the top 100 best films of all time by Time magazine. Wow. It is good, sure, but one of the top 100 of all time? Would it even be in the top ten for martial arts films? Time magazine thinks so.

Roger Ebert wrote, "When I did a seminar at the Hawaii Film Festival several years ago, comparing the physical comedy of Chan and Buster Keaton, martial arts fans brought in their bootleg Hong Kong laser discs of this film." This is an astute point. While they have a very different kind of genre from each other, Keaton and Chan are very much two sides of the same coin: comedy and action, through a complete control of their own bodies.
