      Jake Cole Slant Magazine King Hus breakthrough wuxia masterpiece gets an excellent release from Arrow Video that maximizes the films opulent beauty. Mar 22, 2022 Full Review Howard Waldstein CBR Come Drink with Me distilled the wuxia pian to its bare essence, creating a minimalistic backdrop in which the performers could do just that – perform. Jul 18, 2023 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy As expected, the fight sequences are top-notch. Rated: 3/4 Apr 1, 2022 Full Review Douglas Davidson Elements of Madness ... in my estimation, "Come Drink With Me" is at its most interesting and compelling when Chengs Golden Swallow is the focus of the narrative. Mar 22, 2022 Full Review Sean Axmaker Stream on Demand The film soars on a lyrical mix of scruffy singing heroes, cross-dressing heroines, narcissistic villains, and fantastical action choreographed like dance. Jun 16, 2008 Full Review Jeffrey M. Anderson Combustible Celluloid Cheng's performance has a dancer's grace and razor-sharp intensity; if her sword doesn't get you, her eyes certainly will.

      Robson C Um grupo de bandidos ataca um comboio oficial e sequestra o filho do governador. Eles desejam trocar ele pelo chefe deles que está para ser executado. Para resgatá-lo, é enviada a agente Andorinha Dourada, que tem grandes habilidades em artes marciais, porém isso acaba não sendo o bastante. É quando surge a figura de um mendigo beberrão que passa a ajudar Andorinha. Considerado um clássico nos filmes do gênero artes marciais, o filme apresenta coreografias que se tornariam clássicas. Um exemplo é a cena da hospedaria que deve ter servido com inspiração e base para uma cena parecida no filme O Tigre e o Dragão. Não espere grande profundidade dos personagens. Os clichês são usados e abusados. Os bandidos são maus mesmo. A mistura de comédia e ação. Personagens misteriosos a la Clint Eastwood, com grandes segredos. Porém o que foi bem construído e conduzido nas duas primeiras partes do filme, se perde no terço final, com um final que não fecha bem algumas coisas de alguns personagens. Não sei se houve uma continuação, pois isso explicaria um pouco esse final. Um outro ponto é que, de início, o protagonismo era da Andorinha Dourada, mas em um determinado ponto, o personagem do mendigo assume, ofuscando a Andorinha. Até parece que não é a mesma personagem que enfrentou os bandidos sozinha. Isso só é resgatado no final do filme. Entendo que seja considerado um clássico, criando parâmetros e estereótipos que foram seguidos em outros filmes posteriores, não me agradou como um grande filme do gênero. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 12/08/23 Full Review Audience Member The funniest Chinese movie ever, LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member When a general's son is taken hostage as ransom to free a bandit leader, the general's daughter Golden Swallow (Cheng Pei-pei, who Western audiences may recognize as Jade Fox from Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) goes to rescue her brother and battle the bandit gang. She's protected by a drunk named Fan Da-Pei (Yueh Hua), who is really Drunken Cat, a secret martial arts master, who saves her from a poison dart. The bandits have worked their way into a monastery led by an evil abbot named Liao Kung (Yeung Chi-hing), who once helped Fan Da-Pei to be accepted into the school that taught them both their martial arts skills. As a result, the hero doesn't want to battle him. He also believes that there's no way their battle won't end in death. Director King Hu also made A Touch of Zen, which is an essential Hong Kong film. There's an urban legend that Jackie Chan is rumored to play one of the child singers at the beginning of the film, but Pei-Pei Cheng has stated that he is not in the movie. I'm really excited that Arrow is releasing so many Shaw Brothers movies. I love that I can finally own high quality versions of these films and watch them over and over again. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review William L Traditionally structured and light on the practical effects, but featuring strong action choreography and entertaining characters, Come Drink with Me was one of the progenitors of the Hong Kong martial arts film movement that has in essence never stopped. Considered in the context of today's standards for the genre, it won't compare favorably with its intermittent singing, straightforward protagonists, and virtual suerpowers introduced by the end (conveyed via smoke pushed out of a tube in a sleeve). But with such a vibrant color palette, almost lyrical sense of motion, and elaborate set design, the film is a rather entertaining piece of film whose influence can be felt in films produced many decades later. For a convincing introduction of a badass character, look no further than Cheng Pei-Pei as Golden Swallow drinking wine in a bar while getting creative with the cutlery. (3.5/5) Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 07/21/21 Full Review s r 1001 movies to see before you die. Certainly one of the best kung fu films ever made that will influence the genre forever. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review emile h What separates King Hu from many other directors in the famed Shaw Brothers Studio is that his films are more graceful than machismo. Because of this, Cheng Pei-Pei dominates in one of the best portrayals of wuxia in Hong Kong film history due to the more fluid movements. It also demonstrates some of the best camerawork to compliment the equally strong choreography. There is no expense spared, even the edits are down to a detail that can't be topped. It is no doubt its influence can still be felt today, even in the Western world. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews
