The action legend himself -- Jackie Chan (Shanghai Noon, Rush Hour) -- explodes across the screen in a power-packed adventure that critics agree captures some of the most incredible action stunts ever. When the British government is discovered smuggling precious Chinese artifacts out of the country, folklore hero Wong Fei Hung (Chan) uses his uniquely outlandish style of martial arts -- Drunken Boxing -- to fight the conspirators and salvage the valuables before it's too late. And the more Hung drinks, the more agile he becomes -- able to fend off numerous attacks with unbelievable moves. With Chinese treasures and family pride on the line, Hung steps up to every chall enge. It's a fun and unstoppably entertaining hit!

However I do have one major issue with it: It doesn't have the Chinese audio track. You can listen to an English dub, or Spanish, or French, but no Chinese. Whenever I purchase a foreign-language film, I expect the foreign-language track. And what is even more galling, I saw this in the theater many years ago with the original Chinese track and English subtitles. Now I can't replicate that great theater-going experience.
Thumbs down to Miramax. They should know better.
This movie is a huge improvement on the original Drunken Master movie. While this is still a dubbed movie it definitely has a more international appeal. Also like the original Jackie pummels his enemies using his drunken boxing technique (which as it implies is a technique improved by vast qualities of alcohol, so it may not be a great movie for children). In this movie Jackie has to battle pilferers of Chinese heritage and his father's disapproval, beside the countless nameless enemies. As i have already said this movie has Jackie's best fight scenes collectively both in quantity, he fights for a large portion of the movie, and quality. However, any Jackie aficionado will feel it lacks his signature death defying stunts, and while it is filled with humor; subjectively it doesn't feel as funny or his character as likable as some of his other movies.
Bottom line is that you will love this movie. It's great. I don't usually watch kung fu movies unless they are Jackie Chan movies and in my opinion it ranks up there in Jackie's best movies.
The part where Jackie Chan falls into a pit of hot coals, that is all real, Jackie actually had that sequence filmed three times, on the third time burning his arms and still having those scars today. All that and he played this part at 40 yrs old, pulling off a role of a 20 yr old convincingly.
Another film i enjoyed that was influenced a great deal by Drunken Master 2 was Kung Fu Hustle (Widescreen Edition)even naming the gang in it the "axe gang".
The Legend of Drunken Master is a must for any fan of action movies. It made Entertainment Weekly's top 25 action movies list and also is on Time Magazine's top 100 movies of all time.
