Drunken Master II (醉拳二, Jui Kuen II) is a 1994 Hong Kong action-comedy kung fu film directed by Lau Kar-leung and starring Jackie Chan as Chinese martial arts master and a Cantonese folk hero, Wong Fei-hung. It was Chan's first traditional style martial arts film since Fearless Hyena Part II (1983). The film was released in North America as The Legend of Drunken Master in 2000.

The film is a sequel to Chan's 1978 film Drunken Master, directed by Yuen Woo-ping. Another film, Drunken Master III (1994, directed by Lau Kar-Leung) features little in common with either this or its predecessor, and is not considered a sequel.[by whom?] In 2005, Drunken Master II was named one of the top 100 best films of all time by Time magazine. In 2015, the British Film Institute (BFI) selected Drunken Master II as one of the ten best action movies of all time.

Dubbing History[]

In 1994, an English dub of the film would be produced and released in most international markets. The voice cast is currently unknown; however, the dub was likely recorded in Los Angeles as some releases credit Doug Stone Enterprises for providing the English dialogue.[1]

In 2001, the film would be distributed to the US by Dimension Films under a new title The Legend of Drunken Master. Much like the previous dub, this dub would also be recorded in Los Angeles with Jackie Chan returning to dub his own voice. This dub is also known to have had several edits done to it; such as replacing William Hu's original music score with a new one by Michael Wandmacher, changing all the sound effects, and most notably of all removing the infamous blind boxing scene from the ending, finding it to be in bad taste.

Some releases of the original also remove this ending, by abruptly ending the film after the final fight.
