In 1978 Simon Yuen played the drunken master in Jackie Chan's breakout hit movie. I don't get the drunk cat reference in this title at all but Simon Yuen certainly steals the show. What is left to say about him that has not already been said? 321 movies total and in this one he is doing his own stunts at age 66. There's another legitimate master in the film - Chiu Chi-Ling is a true Hung Gar Fist master with family ties to Wong Fei Hung's school. He played the challenge fighter on stage and many similar roles as the strong guy. I thought all the comedy fell flat but the comedic fight choreography was tops. It's amazing they chose railroad tracks for a fight. There are plenty of grassy fields that will feel a lot softer on the falls but they fought on the rocks and rails anyway. THis one is a must see for martial arts movie fans.
