Drunken Tai Chi

(Dubbed version) - This was Donnie Yen’s first film and it showcases his tremendous abilities and raw talent. The movie is thematically similar to Drunken Master, as Donnie has to receive additional training from an old man in order to beat another fighter. It was fun watching Donnie get bested by a 250 pound female in one scene.

I got the feeling that someone was trying to make Donnie the next Jackie Chan as the movie uses a mixture of slapstick comedy (too much I thought) and some very imaginative fight scenes. The movie has many out of place modern references - moonwalking, skateboarding, bicycle tricks etc. in order to generate humor.  If they had kept this movie a little more serious, it could have been truly excellent because when they let Donnie go its quite something to see.
