Drunken Master III is a 1994 Hong Kong martial arts film directed by Lau Kar-leung and starring Andy Lau, Michelle Reis, Willie Chi, Simon Yam, Lau Kar-leung, Adam Cheng and Gordon Liu. This film was quickly produced after director Lau and Jackie Chan fell out on the set of Drunken Master II with the style of action and Lau decided to produce a more authentic entry in the Drunken Master film series.[1] Despite the title, Drunken Master III is not a sequel to the Drunken Master film series and is widely considered an imitator.[2]

Plot[edit]

At the turn of the century of China, the White Lotus Society plots to put the sinister Manchu Emperor Yuan Shikai (William Ho) to become the Emperor of China. However, he needs to be given a Jade Ring possessed by his fiance, Princess Sum-yuk (Michelle Reis). The White Lotus Society gets Yeung Kwan (Andy Lau) to get the princess. However, Yeung is actually a rebel leader working for Sun Yat-sen and he abducts Sum-yuk and find refuge at the Po Chi Lam clinic owned by Wong Kei-ying (Adam Cheng) with his mischievous son, Wong Fei-hung (Willie Chi). Later, Fei-hung gets involved with Yeung and Sum-yuk and end up on the run together. Along the way, Fei-hung later learns the secrets of Drunken Boxing from an old master, Uncle Yan (Lau Kar-leung).
