Storyline

Returning home with his father after a shopping expedition, Wong Fei-Hong is unwittingly caught up in the battle between foreigners who wish to export ancient Chinese artifacts and loyalists who don't want the pieces to leave the country. Fei-Hong has learned a style of fighting called "Drunken Boxing", which makes him a dangerous person to cross. Unfortunately, his father is opposed to his engaging in any kind of fighting, let alone drunken boxing. Consequently, Fei-Hong not only has to fight against the foreigners, but he must overcome his father's antagonism as well. Written by Murray Chapman <muzzle@cs.uq.oz.au>

An amazing Chan vehicle; one of his best
22 October 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Jackie Chan shows off (and delivers) the goods in this film. It follows a tradition of Chan starring movies in America (Rumble In the Bronx, Supercop, Supercop II, First Strike, Who Am I, Operation Condor and Operation Condor) that were hits in China some time ago and have been re-released here (in fact, except for Rush Hour and Shanghai Noon all of Chan's films are China made). This is one of his best.

The plot follows Chan as a young man who is a master in the art of drunken fighting (drinking before and druing a fight to gain action) who has to go up against art theieves and family betrayers. This plot is somewhat thin, and the dubbing makes The Crippled Masters look like Das Boot. But, the entertainment factor kicks in, and we see terrific fun. Only liability: this is a remake of the film that originally made Chan a celebrity in China, but in this film he is playing the same character (and he's 40). But still, it is a good enough film to almost not notice. A-
