Kung-Fu Theater - a continuing series of martial arts cult classics every 2nd Wednesday of the month @ Brewvies. We conclude our summer long Jackie Chan retrospective with his seminal masterwork, Drunken Master 2 a.k.a. The Legend of Drunken Master (1994)!
Wong Fei-Hung knows the rules of the house: No drunken boxing without his father's consent. Rules however, are meant to be broken... So is anything or anyone that crosses Fei-Hung's path.
From famed martial arts Director Lau Kar-Leung (The 36th Chamber of Shaolin) and the powerhouse Jackie Chan comes this wildly inventive and hilarious martial arts classic which is often hailed as both talent's all time best.
Chan (in his signature comedic fashion) plays the Chinese folk hero Wong Fei-Hung, a young Kung-Fu student and rascal determined to stop the smugglers of priceless national artifacts. In order to do so, he confronts his foes with drunken boxing, the loose-limbed fighting style comprised of enough drunken leans, staggering, and weaves to rival a shit-faced sailor. The style's name, however, belies the intricate nature of it's choreography.
The show-topping final smackdown alone - whose bravura touches include Chan turning himself into a human blowtorch - took four months to shoot and may be the ultimate finale in his entire ouevre.
