I have just had the pleasure of watching "Legend of a drunken Master." Jackie Chan and all envolved literally scorched the fight scenes of the Matrix. I felt myself jumping and jerking in my seat, getting the humorous and adrenaline soaked emotion radiating off of this film's surface. It is just plain awesome. It is dubbed in English, what do you expect! You have no time to read lines between the action sequences! L.O.A.D.M just gave me the heartiest experience I have gotten out of a film in quite a while, in light of the dribble Jeepers Creepers that I had to sit through recently. The action hardly takes a breath, and you can tell that Chan has to "tone-down" when doing American films, because he is down right fast and jerky. This movie proves it! Watch Bruce Lee, then watch Jackie...who's faster? Chan uses an endless amount of instrument's, whatever he can get his hand's on, in jovial and powerful act's of martial art's rhythm. The cast surrounding him stand's their ground and remain's close to his fighting standard's. Even the extra's that are merely there to be beaten up, and we're talking hundreds of them. This sequal to "Drunken Master" is definately one of, if not the, best Jackie Chan has to offer.
