Default Snake in the Eagle's Shadow / Drunken Master - HDD Reviews

Matthew says Snake in the Eagle's Shadow and Drunken Master are true martial arts genre classics and a must have Blu-ray double-feature for Jackie Chan fans.

The Cantonese soundtrack for Drunken Master has sections where the original dialogue is missing and had to be substituted with the English dub. This is disclosed on the disc packaging.

Reportedly, a Region B Blu-ray from Masters of Cinema has the full Cantonese track.

I've had the Australian version of Drunken Master for a couple of years, it's got a 2.0 Cantonese track as well. I wonder if this or the newer U.K. Release is an improvement?

Are you sure it's Cantonese all the way through?

I am not, I'd have to watch it again. Can you point out a specific scene with English dialog?

Unfortunately, I don't own a copy of the movie. I'm going by information provided by Twilight Time:

https://www.twilighttimemovies.com/s...aster-blu-ray/

"*PLEASE NOTE: In sections of the Cantonese and Mandarin audio tracks where the original dialogue is missing on Drunken Master, an English dub will play"

Reviews of older DVD editions make note of the same thing.
