The last of Jackie Chan's old school kung fu movies
An old school kung ku comedy starring Jackie Chan. He's also the director of this movie.
This is bit like continuation of the Young Master. Jackie Chan reprises his role as the Dragon. The actor who portrayed the teacher in Young Master returns as Dragon's father. Although the production is more polished, the story isn't compelling as the Young Master. The format is old school kung fu movie where things happen in earlier days of China. Actions are also old school although there's more comedic elements in this movie than other kung fu movies.
Some clues to the future Jackie Chan movies are seen in this movie, such as using the 2nd floor balcony to stage a dramatic fight sequence.
This is the last old school kung fu movie Jackie Chan starred in. With the success of Project A, his movies starts to take different direction in the future.
