This movie was fun. I really thought it was TOO much like Drunken Master, but not as good. I just felt that Jackie was desparate to recreate the success of that classic, so he just did pretty much the same movie over again with some changes included. But at least he picked Drunken Master to rip off, because that movie is awesome. I make it sound like this movie is bad, but that isnt the case. Its a good movie, very enjoyable, just not original.
