    • Imported from UK.
    Kung-Fu Classic starring the undisputed Godfather of Martial Arts Action-Comedy Jackie Chan in a no-holds-barred fight fest like none other! Hong Kong action pioneer Yuen Woo-ping (The Matrix; Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) and martial arts superstar Jackie Chan burst onto the scene in 1978 with a one-two punch of kung fu masterpieces, and it was the second of these, Drunken Master, with its Keatonesque slapstick and flawlessly choreographed fight scenes that would leave the biggest impact. Jackie Chan plays Wong Fei-hung (a legendary Chinese folk hero who has also been portrayed on screen by Jet Li, Gordon Liu and Donnie Yen amongst many others), who is punished for his frequent troublemaking by being forced to study under the martial arts master Su Hua Chi (Yuen Siu-tien), notorious for his drinking as much as he is for leaving his students crippled. Wong proves himself an adept pupil, but his new skills are soon put to the test when his own father is targeted by a brutal assassin (Hwang Jang Lee, Snake in the Eagle s Shadow). Frequently ranked as one of the greatest martial arts films of all time, Drunken Master revolutionised modern action cinema, and the Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present the film on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK in a new Dual-Format edition. DUAL FORMAT SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES: * Definitive transfer from 4K digital restoration * The original complete Cantonese soundtrack, rarely heard on home video * Alternate English and Mandarin audio options * Newly translated English subtitles * Audio commentary by Hong Kong film experts Ric Meyers and Jeff Yang * Video interview with Jackie Chan * New video interview with film scholar Tony Rayns * New video appreciation by director Gareth Evans (The Raid film series) * Deleted scene * Original trailer * PLUS: A booklet featuring a new essay by Michael Brooke and archival imagery Unsurpassed... the definitive Martial Arts movie! - Combat Magazine
