+ 7.9 sec




Alternate / Taiwanese Version longer
60:15-60:16 / 58:07-58:14

Before San Kung reaches for the soap, the Taiwanese Version permanently sticks with him. As a result, the Taiwanese Version shows him washing much longer. The Regular HK Version on the other hand contains an intercut of the shower cabin..

Taiwanese Version longer
61:54 / 59:52-59:56

Extended shot of Dragon cleaning the floor while San Kung gets out of the shower in the background.

4.1 sec




Taiwanese Version longer
64:25 / 62:27-62:44

After Dragon's wooden shoes are shorter now, thanks to using a sword on them, the Taiwanese Version contains more dialog. One also misses that part in the Regular HK Version because San Kung's rolling over the table does not make any sense resp. it is out of context. Actually, that is the reaction to Dragon tossing his shoe in San Kung's direction. This also explains why he does not wear it anymore in the subsequent scene.

17.2 sec




HK Version longer
64:37-64:55 / 62:56

Now, the Taiwanese Version lacks some footage. Dragon uses some wooden inventory as protection but San Kung cuts it all in pieces.

+ 18.7 sec




Alternate / Taiwanese Version longer
72:43-72:47 / 70:43-70:44

After Dragon escaped with ankle shackle, the Regular Version shows Kam's bodyguard in the city.

The Taiwanese Version immediately continues with the agreement between Kam and Ah Suk in the woods plus the shot begins earlier with Ah Suk's first comment.

HK Version 3 sec longer

Taiwanese Version longer
76:12 / 74:09-74:19

After Dragon rolled over the log, the Taiwanese Version contains a nice little coversation between the people in the audience. This scene contains a Drunken Master reference: a man suspects that a Kung Fu fighting bum is called So (the name of the main character in Drunken Master is So Hai).

10.3 sec




Taiwanese Version longer
77:13 / 75:21-75:29

Though cut smoothly in the Regular HK Version because it shows a close-up and a distance shot of Dragon rolling over bodygaurd's back, the Taiwanese Version reveals the scene was originally longer: Dragon actually ends up on the ground and gets pulled up again with a rope. The first bodyguard now holds him and the other one attacks Dragon who is apparently helpless now. But Dragon uses his legs and when the second bodyguard wants to attack, he rips off the lower part of the pants. This also explains why it is missing in the following scenes!

8.5 sec




Taiwanese Version longer
77:58 / 76:14-76:17

Extended shot of Dragon crawling away underneath the skirts and ending up underneath a guy who is flattered resp. he asks if he really was pretty.
