Drunken Tai Chi i haven't seen yet I do not want to watch it because I don't like Donnie Yen. because he has to much pride in most his movies i watched.

The old teacher was played by Yuen Cheung Yan, an excellent choreographer in his own right. It's basically a [I]Yuenclan[/I] movie, and Donnie's kicking here is superb (he was around 19 when this film was made).

The action [I]does[/I] make up for the comedy, and Donnie's fights vs. Wong Tao and Yuen Shun Yi (in the finale) are highlights.

Finally, a dvd with a Cantonese soundtrack has been made available. The old English-dubbed version (at least the one I had) was horrendous, and made the comedy look even worse IMO!

and it is a damn shame. In between his recent art projects like Fearless or Unleashed Yuen Woo Ping needs to go back and make one his bizzare Yuen Clan films. These films such as Shaolin and Taoism Drunkard were some of the strangest and most energetic films ever made. They helped showcase Yuen Yat Chor as a new star (who sadly never really broke out). Drunken Tai Chi helped introduce the world to Donnie Yen who showed what a man with BMX bike in ancient China could do along with some breakdancing (YWP later made a breakdancing film with Donnie Yen) for good measure. Lots of wack comedy, great fights and great fun. Yuen Yat Chor actually appears in this film too I recall.
