Drunken Master

Region 2 Portugal

Wong Fei Hung (Jackie Chan) is sent to train under his uncle, a wine-guzzling master famous for crippling his students. Desperate to escape this brutal teacher's cruel regime, he flees, but is confronted, humiliated and beaten senseless by a hired assassin (Hwang Jang Lee). Angry, ashamed, hungry for revenge, the wayward Fei Hung returns to his drunken master...

The second collaboration between director Yuen Wo Ping and Jackie Chan was a huge box-office hit. A mind-bending blend of madcap martial arts action and demented slapstick, Drunken Master ushered in the new genre of comedy kung-fu and established Chan as its uncontested king.
