Da zui xia: A ruthless band of thugs kidnaps a young official to exchange for their leader who has been captured. Golden Swallow is sent to take on the thugs and free the prisoner (who is also her brother). Though she is able to handle the overwhelming odds, she is hit by a poison dart and gets help from a beggar who is really a kung-fu master in disguise. With his help, she forms a plan to get her brother back. Written by
Drunken Kung-Fu, the English version, has a ridiculous dubbed version that makes it possibly even more funny than it was originally intended. This is a spoof of a martial arts film, rather than a violent film. The violence is effectively humorous and impossible, but well-performed at the same time.
The plot is quite simple. A brash young man confronts the local bully until an even bigger Ninja-bully arrives to destroy him. His nutty aunt and loony uncle, help him develop his martial arts through spirituality and potions, and with many household chores.
The kung-fu scenes are impressive, if not believable, and give way to silly mystical martial art inventions that will likely have you laughing out loud.
This is slapstick martial arts at its best and a rare genre that is likely to develop more and more throughout the years. Shaolin Soccer is a similar spoof of martial arts dramas....
