A year after training young Jackie Chan in the Drunken Fist, Sam the Seed discovers he has a son, Foggy. He tries to train Foggy but to no avail. Foggy is then trained in Drunken Fist from his uncle as he must face his father's rival, Rubber Legs, another Drunken Fist master who combines it with Mantis Fist to create a deadly style. Written by
So Hai, the drunken master from 'Drunken Master', discovers he has a son, Foggy. More importantly, a stereotypical evil kung-fu master (long-white hair included) named - wait for it - Rubberlegs (Hwang Jang Lee), is seeking out So Hai in order to prove the superiority of his northern Drunken Mantis style. Foggy must learn the art of Sickness Boxing, and join forces with his father to defeat Rubberlegs and his pupil-in-evilness.
'Dance of the Drunken Mantis' is the first sequel to Jackie Chan's 1978 classic 'Drunken Master'. However, it is not 'Drunken Master II', more of a spin-off. Jackie Chan doesn't appear in this movie, however, director Yuen Wo Ping returns to direct this spin-off. It is funny, and has some nice action scenes, but ultimately it has nothing on the original 'Drunken Master'. Yuen Wo Ping and Hwang Jang Lee are good, but nowhere near their best in this, but it is still entertaining.
7/10 - Martial arts fans should enjoy it
