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.

About this movie

Wiki

Jackie Chan was 40 when he stepped back into the role of young Wong Fei Hung in this sequel to his 1978 breakthrough comic hit,Drunken Master. In the ensuing years the character, one of China's most popular folk heroes and a cinematic staple for decades, had been taken up as a quiet, introspective healer by Jet Li in the first three films in the fabulously popular series of filmsOnce Upon a Time in Chinaand in the more comicLast Hero in China. Chan returns Wong Fei Hung to the mischievous youth of the original film, an impetuous rascal with the skills of his healer/martial arts master father (Ti Lung ofA Better Tomorrow) and the impulsiveness of his conniving, fun-loving mother (Anita Mui). Comic mix-ups and misunderstandings land Wong in the middle of a plot by British smugglers stealing Chinese treasures and enslaving local workers in an iron foundry. This mad mix of slapstick comedy, energetic action, and melodrama offers some of Chan's finest fight scenes, a series of tightly choreographed, highly acrobatic skirmishes that build in intensity to the battle royal in the foundry where Wong dodges coal carts, parries sneak attacks, and crab walks through red-hot coals while taking on a succession of comers. Though 20 years older than his character, Chan pulls it off with grace, energy, and youthful vigor.--Sean Axmaker
