Considered one of the best Jackie Chan movies of all time, The Legend of the Drunken Master is set in the early 1900s in China. Wong Fei Hong (Chan) is a young master of the martial art of "drunken boxing," in which fighters use alcohol to blind themselves to pain and release the angry brawler within.
