In Drunken Master 2 the story concerns the misadventures of Wong Fei Hung as he accidentally becomes involved with the affairs of the British consul, who are smuggling ancient Chinese artifacts out of the country. Fei Hung battles the henchmen of the consul using the Drunken Boxing style of martial arts. Wong Fei Hung finds that he becomes a more powerful fighter when he consumes alcohol and all hell breaks loose at the finale!
Best version: The HK disc has original Cantonese language and soundtrack but no English subtitles and its non anamorphic. It does have an alternate English dub however. The Thakral China disc is uncut Cantonese and subs but cropped. If you don’t mind English dubs and changed soundtracks the USA DVD and Blu ray do give very good picture quality (and Jackie did dub his own voice). All the Blu rays released across Europe are all the same cut and dubbed versions except have a dub in there own language.
