Capsule Review: "The Legend of Drunken Master"

This is essentially a pared-down version of Jackie Chan’s much-revered 1994 film “Drunken Master II.” It’s 15 minutes shorter, and for me at least, probably better. I have to be honest. I am not really a martial arts fan and I absolutely HATE watching movies that have been dubbed in English. That said, I enjoyed the fighting in this film quite a bit. There are some amazing moments. The jokes are bad and obvious, though. And the plot is so uninteresting that every time they weren’t fighting, I was dozing off. I must have been really tired when I saw this, but I still liked it okay. Hell, it has to be better than our other option that day, “Pay it Forward.” That looks like a steaming pile of crap.
