After being punished for getting into trouble, a mischievous young man is sent to train under a brutal, but slovenly old beggar, who teaches him the secret of the Drunken Fist.

Drunken Master is out on Blu-Ray in the UK, released by Eureka as part of their Masters of Cinema series. The picture and audio quality is excellent, restoring the original aspect ratio which wasn&t used in previous UK DVD releases. Multiple audio options are included too.

There are plenty of special features. These include:

– 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
– New video interview with director Yuen Woo-ping
– 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

It&s a fantastic set of special features. The commentary is a must listen, with the two experts full of passion for the film and genre. Tony Rayns provides his usual in-depth look at the background of the film and some analysis. Gareth Evans is clearly a fan and it&s nice to have his thoughts added to the collection. It&s always great to hear the ever humble Jackie talk about his career too. The Woo-Ping Yuen interview is rather rough around the edges, but is also welcome.
