Legend Of Drunken Master
Country: Hong Kong
ah, jackie chan. this one goes beyond many of the other jackie chan action flicks in that it integrates a greater depth of storytelling in the plot. that is, the plot has a layer of commentary and social/historical awareness that many of his other films lack. some of his other films incorporate a police man or citizen getting involved to stem the crime rate or help a damsel in distress, but this one incorporates labor issues and british colonial imperialism, much in the way that jet li’s epic once upon a time in china does. in fact, both depict the same legendary chinese figure: wong fei-hung, though in different stories and using different fighting styles.
