“Snake in the Eagle’s Shadow is set in a world of rival martial arts schools. Chan, an amiable if beleaguered student, uses comedy, physical grace, and surprising stunts…the birth of a superstar.”
– Walter Addiego, SFGate.com
“The genius of Drunken Master lies in its kinetics. Pure entertainment, and a true chop-socky classic.”
– Joey O’Bryan, The Austin Chronicle
Jackie Chan became an international star via this pair of Hong Kong kung fu/comedy classics, Snake in the Eagle’s Shadow and Drunken Master, both released in 1978 and both featuring Chan as an initially bumbling but finally brilliant martial artist. Both spotlight fresh refinements on Chan’s then-developing style, combining acrobatic fighting, comic timing, use of madly improvised weapons, and innovative stunts, all performed by Chan, himself.
