Summary: This movie KICKS ASS!!!!!!
This movie is one of my favourite Jackie Chan flims of all time (including 'Project A', 'Police Story' 'Drunken Master' and 'S.I.T.E.S'). I was blown away!

DM2 follows the story of a young Wong Fei Hung (Chan) who lands into deep trouble after getting drunk and beating up thugs who attack his mother (Anita Mui), and attacking his well-respected father, Wong Ki Ying (Ti Lung) in public. After been beaten badly by his father and the bad guys (when he's drunk) Fei-Hung promises never to touch booze again. Soon Fei Hung realises that the local steel factory is smuggling Chinese heritage to foreign museums, with the help of local villagers, Fei Hung sets out to save historical artefacts.

This movie starts off as a comedy, with Anita Mui's mahjong scene and the confusion between Liu Chia Liang's character and Fei Hung, but then leans towards a more serious kung fu movie theme. Who cares? As the movie gets serious, so does the action. Some very great fight scenes, as Jackie takes on thugs in an adrenaline-fuelled ambush at a teahouse and the jawdropping finale (featuring the infamous fight between Jackie Chan and his bodyguard Ken Lo). This movie can't go wrong. It seems to get better whenever I see it.

Truly amazing. *****/*****
