I first learned about this release from the fine folks over at kungfucinema.com:

You can buy the DVD at HKFlix.com (among other places):

Finally! An uncut release with the original-language audio and English subtitles, and in its original aspect ratio with an anamorphic transfer.

I've been waiting for a legit release of this (haven't we all?), but from the discussion on Kung Fu Cinema, this sounds like a bootleg.

I bought this dvd and the video and audio is awesomely acceptable. There is no point waiting any longer. The difference between the uncut versus uncut versions on this dvd:

1. Uncut: end of movie shows jackie chan drunk off his rockers. This is where the video quality changes to good to bad, but it's no big deal because it is only a 30 second scene.

2. Cut: end of movie just shows jackie's parents getting congratulated by govt. I think this ending is better.

He's not drunk, he's acting like he's mentally retarded. That's the reason it was cut in the US.

That scene is important to the film and that's how Jackie released it, important to me too cuz it's pretty funny. I want nothing but his cut of the movie.

Wasn't it supposed to show that the alcohol destroyed his brain? I've heard both versions that his character was merely mocking as well as his character was brain damaged. I always sided with the former due to the cries of the scene being poor taste.

The uncut one is the only version of the movie I have seen, and that's exactly how I took the ending: the alcohol gave him brain damage.

I dont think the brain damaged ending fits the tone of the film. Drinking causing brain damage and craziness fits more in a movie like True Legend but not in Drunken Master 2. The movie is too light to have such a "drinking is bad" morale, especially when his nice godmother is telling him to ignore his father througb out the whole film.

And it's just a disturbing ending as well. I like disturbing endings but not in this case where it didnt fit the tone of the film.

Is jackie chan even drinking booze in the climax? I always thought it was some poisonous factory liquid or oil that he was drinking (which makes even more sense why he is brain damaged at the end of the film).

Yeah, if that's the only difference between the two cuts, this is one time I'm happier with the edited version of the film.
