Overview

Chan Hui Lau stars in this vintage martial arts film as Chang, the owner of a winery and master of Drunken Boxing, a deadly kung fu technique that, as the name implies, requires its practitioner to be drunk. His relatively peaceful life is interrupted when he catches two boys (Li Yi Min and Jack Long) stealing grapes from his vineyards and puts them to work for him. Over time, he teaches them the art of Drunken Boxing. When the two boys get into a fight with some local toughs, they provoke the wrath of Yeh Hu (Lung Fei), Chang’s enemy.

Rated NR | Length 98 minutes

Viewing Notes

Okay drunken kung fu flick about two old masters that meet then reminisce about their younger days when they learned drunken style kung fu. That framing was interesting but the movie doesn’t really resolve by the end.
