R | | Action, Comedy
A young martial artist is caught between respecting his pacifist father's wishes or stopping a group of disrespectful foreigners from stealing precious artifacts.
Jackie Chan actually crawled over the burning hot coals two times. He felt he "didn't have the right rhythm" the first time he did it.
Water floats, but also capsizes boats.
The burns Fei-Hung receives to his hands and face in the final battle when he falls into the hot coals disappear right before he drinks.
Opening credits list Jackie Chan as "His stuntperson's double".
SPOILER: Dimension Films released it in the US in 2000, with a few differences, including a title change to 'The Legend of Drunken Master', alternate shots (when an inebriated and defenseless Fei Hung is confronted by John), and the final shots removed (showing the effects of Fei Hung consuming industrial alcohol), a new English dub, music, sound effects, and credits.
