Drunken Master

111 mins.
Directed by Woo-Ping Yuen

Hong Kong action pioneer Yuen Woo-ping (fight choreographer for THE MATRIX, KILL BILL, CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON, and more) and martial arts superstar Jackie Chan burst onto the scene in 1978 with a one-two punch of kung fu masterpieces, and it was the second of these, DRUNKEN MASTER, with its Keatonesque slapstick and flawlessly choreographed fight scenes that would leave the biggest impact.

Jackie Chan plays Wong Fei-hung (a legendary Chinese folk hero), who is punished for his frequent troublemaking by being forced to study under the martial arts master Su Hua Chi (Yuen Siu-tien), notorious for his drinking as much as he is for leaving his students crippled.

Wong proves himself an adept pupil, but his new skills are soon put to the test when his own father is targeted by a brutal assassin.
