Drunken Master (1978)

MGM – Saturday 17 November, 8.30pm

Considered the greatest kung fu comedy of all time, this is the story of an undisciplined boy who must learn ‘Drunken Fist’ kung fu in order to stop an assassin.

Blending intricate martial arts movies with Jackie Chan’s trademark slapstick comedy, this film ushered in the new genre of kung fu comedy and established Chan as its uncontested king.

Director: Yuen Wo Ping (fight choreographer for The Matrix and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon).

Starring: Jackie Chan.

“Enjoyably silly” – Leonard Maltin
