If you're interested in a movie that's fun and is all about the great fight scenes, you've found it! Absolute fantastic choreography and intense fight sequences make this movie an ABSOLUTE MUST have for any Martial Arts fan. Gordon Liu is great and plays the drunken fist style PERFECTLY. IF you have no experience with kung fu films, you may not appreciate it-- but if you have a true appreciation and love for the craft, you MUST WATCH THIS ONE! Out of any given 40 kung fu flicks, this is definetly in the top 10. Up there with Shaolin Temple, Snake and Crane and Fearless Hyena. This one is A MUST HAVE!!
Drunken Monk Delivers the Goods

"For those of you interested in a movie with a great storyline and heart pounding drama and suspense... look elsewhere. This movie is fun and its all about the great fight scenes. Absolute fantastic choreography and intense fight sequences make this movie an absolute must have for any MA fan. Gordon Liu is great and depicts the drunken fist style fairly acurately. For those reviewers that only gave this 1 or 2 stars, they obviously have no experience with kung fu films. Don't listen to them, they don't know what they're talking about. I own probably 40 kung fu flicks and this is definetly in the top 10. Up there with Shaolin Temple, Snake and Crane and Fearless Hyena. This one is a must have. Buy it today."
Gordon Liu + wine = a lot of injuries

"Gordon Liu is amazing in this tale of revenge. An amazing cast of characters, including a one-armed fighter, and a bad guy who masters in the mantis style. All though at times the flashbacks and storyline slow down the movie, the fights and action make up for it fully. I definately enjoyed this film, and I think that all kungfu collectors should go out and get it. A classic."
Only for HARDCORE kung fu fans

"The plot doesn't make very much sense in this movie, but then again it doesn't try to. With that being said, I will go ahead and give you the reasons you should watch this and then the reasons why not.
Reasons why-great iron whip vs. gordon fight, great fight with gordon and guy with iron with without his whip, final fight scene.
This is not a great movie my ANY means, but the jungfu is fun to watch and the commentary means you will watch it at least twice."
