Movie Reviews

A Great Showcase of Jackie's Talents
Julie A. Elkes | Bloomington, IN United States | 10/20/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Much in the tradition of the great comics, such as Buster Keaton or Charlie Chaplin, this movie really shines on Jackie's comic genius. You can turn off the sound and the comic scenes would still be hilarious. However, this isn't just about comedy... the movie shows his range as an actor, from humor to grief, and his heroic final fight has some incredible work, as well as -- of course -- more humor. In all, it is probably one of his best films. It's a shame they used some dork to dub over his voice, but still that wouldn't have kept me from buying this film. If you want to appreciate Jackie Chan at his best... this is one of the better movies you could watch!"
Classic Jackie Chan
Julie A. Elkes | 01/02/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A classic. I 'll give this five stars relative to other movies in the genre. If you love vintage Jackie Chan (RE Drunken Master)then you'll love this. A great combination of Chan's comedic talents and superb acrobatic martial arts skills, this movie will have you feeling the pain and laughing at the same time."
Top-notch movie with a DVD to match
T-Man | Virginia Beach, VA | 08/26/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I don't know what a lot of people are talking about. This DVD from Columbia Tristar is the best there is for this movie. It has the original Cantonese dialouge (along with a separate English dub) with English subs. The picture is fine too. It's good enough for an old movie like this one. It's not like you can't see what's going on in the film. I like it.

The movie itself has GREAT choreography, especially Jackie Chan versus the sword guy at the school and Jackie Chan versus the three swordsmen. Fast paced and BREATHTAKING!"
