Seminal martial arts movie which capitalised on Jackie Chan's overnight success in 'Snake In the Eagle's Shadow' and firmly heralded the arrival of a new genre, comedy-kung fu. Chan apparently contributed re-writes to much of the film, notably the hilarious climatic 'Eight Drunken Fairies' fight sequence. Wong Fei Hung (Chan) is sent to train under his Uncle, a wine-guzzling master famous for crippling his students. Desperate to escape this brutal teacher's regime Fei Hung runs away but is confronted and beaten senseless by a hired assassin (Hwang Jang Lee). Angry and ashamed Fei Hung is forced to return to his drunken master.
