    Synopsis


    The Legend of Drunken Master
    Jackie Chan returns in one of his greatest roles in this action-comedy sequel to his 1978 Hong Kong blockbuster Drunken Master. Wong Fei Hong (Chan) is a young master of the martial art of "drunken boxing," in which fighters use alcohol to blind themselves to pain and release the angry brawler within; with the right amount of drinks under his belt, Hong can become a furious one-man army. Hong accompanies his father (Ti Lung) on a voyage to China, where they purchase a precious supply of ginseng. When Hong discovers thugs stealing from their luggage, he leaps into action to get their belongings back. Instead, he winds up with a box of valuable Chinese artifacts, which criminals are hoping to smuggle to England at a tremendous profit. Hong sets out to fight the gangsters and give the artifacts back to their rightful owners, but while his stepmother (Anita Mui) encourages him to use his drunken boxing skills, his father feels his boozy antics bring shame to the family. Jackie Chan brought some of his most elaborate stunt work to Drunken Master 2, including a remarkable fight on a bed of hot coals; Chan also directed part of the film, after Lau Kar Leung was fired after a number of disagreements with his star. Six years after it became a box office hit in Asia, Drunken Master 2 earned a theatrical release in the United States; the film was re-titled Legend Of The Drunken Master (in part because the original Drunken Master never had a proper theatrical release in America), re-edited, and dubbed into English, with a new score by Michael Wandmacher. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      I am comparing this Miramax version to the well-known Thakral version for the fans. Miramax (blu-ray) version is uncut; Thakral version is uncut. Miramax (blu-ray) is in its original aspect ratio [2.35.1]; Thakral version is not [1:85]. Miramax's picture quality is out of this world; Thakral version is unremastered. Miramax version has no Cantonese soundtrack; Thakral has the original soundtrack in Cantonese. So in conclusion to the liner notes' re-edited theory, it's not. The bluray is unedited and it's the original theatrical version. Now as I look at this film, I have always wondered why Master Lau Kar-leung was so angry about the direction that Jackie wanted to take it. I believe that Master Lau Kar-leung wanted more traditional choreography and Jackie wanted more of his action-based sequences, more on the stunt side like he normally does. For me, it would of been good no matter what. But if I had a choice of who would take the lead, of course, it would be Master Lau Kar-leung. Knowing that Jackie was a major superstar, it's understood that Golden Harvest went with Jackie's ending. In conclusion, if you don't have this film in your media collection, you seriously need counseling. R.I.P. Master Lau Kar-leung. WE MISS YOU!

      If you're a Jackie Chan fan,this movie has the typical action you'll expect from one of his movies. However,here he moves faster than in his current films, which is nice to view.
