Drunken Monkey
LoveHKfilm, by Kozo source: http://www.lovehkfilm.com/reviews_2/drunken_monkey.htm
«Drunken Monkey is probably a better bet than The Twins Effect, though the actors are nowhere near as pretty. The film gives itself numerous pats on the back for being the genuine deal (the opening credits is a narrative-unrelated martial arts exhibition), and despite the uneven silliness of the film, it does provide better choreographed and staged fu than we're used to seeing nowadays.»

«Drunken Monkey is brilliant chop-socky fun from the legendary Shaw Brothers. At turns comic and dramatic, but always damn cool, this film represents everything that's right about low-budget Asian cinema.»
Twitch, by Todd Brown source: http://twitchfilm.net/site/view/drunken-monkey-review/
«Where the film excels, however, is in the martial arts. Lau may be getting old but you’ll never see another sixty year old with as much energy as he demonstrates here, looking as though he could still take on and best a gang of men half his age. »
So Good Reviews, by Kenneth Brorsson source: http://www.sogoodreviews.com/reviews/drunkenmonkey.htm
«The key to enjoying Lau Kar Leung's Drunken Monkey lies in setting expectations low. Judging by the general Internet buzz, it wasn't particularly highly praised, rightly so in regards to the movie as a a whole. Drunken Monkey does not come close to the great heights of, for example, The 36th Chamber Of Shaolin, nor matches the action in it but the fact that it's a rare treat to even see this kind of film in 2003 ranks as a merit in it's own.»
