I'd guess that the western release of this film wasn't until much later, probably after Lethal Weapon 4 when Jet Li came to the attention of western audiances more. They didn't spend too much money on dubbing the version I saw so guess it was just easier to grab something else that had already been done.
Its the only reason I can think of as I seriously doubt NRNS2 would take from this, just doesn't make sense.
hahahaha. thank you so much for that rational response. you're right, it was only brought to the western audiences after LW4.
long live the no retreat no surrender 2 film score!
"how about... a royal flush!" *loren avedon kicks a cauldron of boiling water into the bad guys*
The soundtrack, at least parts of it could also be heard in Jet Li's other movie, The Master.
I'll have to check it out, thanks for letting me know!
