Director Chia-Liang Liu and star Jackie Chan clashed often during filming. Among their disagreements, Liu had a particular style of filming which involved quick tracking shots, slow-motion and the use of wide-angle lenses to play with perspective, which Chan didn't appreciate, Liu wanted to have more of the realistic Huen-Gar style of fighting whereas Chan felt the fans wanted more of the drunken style and Liu wanted to use wires during the fight scenes, which Chan was categorically opposed to. Lau eventually left the film, with Chan taking over as director for the final fight scene. See more »

I recently saw "The Legend of "Drunken Master" not knowing anything about it and it was a grwat suprise to find how good this movie is. I have new respect for Chan after seeing this film. The fights scenes in this movie are simply amazing, the final fight that takes place in a steel mill made my jaw hit the floor, it lasts for about 20 minutes and Chan does some amzing stunts. This is the best martial ats movie I have ever seen.
