Here is the dubbed U.S. version of the Jackie Chan classic, The Legend Of Drunken Master. When Wong Fei Hong (Chan) discovers that the thieves are smuggling priceless Chinese artifacts out of the country, Hong turns to his unusual form of martial arts, known as drunken boxing, to put a stop to the conspirators. In this defensive art form, the more one drinks, the better one fights...and Hong can really put it away. Don
The anamorphically enhanced 2.30:1 DVD exhibits generally good image quality. Sourced from a print, some scenes are a bit soft, but otherwise sharpness is satisfactory. Colors are nicely balanced, with accurate fleshtones and generally deep blacks. Contrast is a bit low at times, but shadow delineation is generally pleasing. Minor edge enhancement is noticed. The source is quite clean, with minor dirt and a few artifacts. (Suzanne Hodges)
