Necklace Fight – Drunken Master II

Drunken Master II contains a number of highly entertaining fights, from an old skool fight in the beginning of the movie up until the spectacular factory fight.

The “middle one”, that takes place after Fei Hung’s  stepmom has been  robbed of her diamond necklace, is one of my favorites. It starts out with Jackie fighting “ordinary” kung fu, avoiding the drunkard style – and ends with hellfire, when he’s encouraged by his stepmom to use his powerful drunken boxing skills. Well, drunken boxing is simply not as powerful without the right amount of alcohol, so you can see where it’s all heading. It all ends with Jackie going crazy all over everybody, with his inimitable imitations of the eight drunken gods. It’s Jackie at his best; pure artistry and incredibly enjoyable!
