    Naked Weapon DVD Review
    SRP: £19.99

    Picture

    This two-disc set features a beautiful
    anamorphic 1.85:1 transfer. Colours
    are accurately reproduced, detail
    levels are high and there is not a trace
    of edge-enhancement or artefacting.

    Sound

    As one of the rare Cantonese films to
    have been recorded in English, you
    might ask why HKL has included both
    English and Cantonese mixes on the
    DVD. That's because the Cantonese
    mix has a little more than language in
    it, and because HKL is nothing if not
    comprehensive. Both soundtracks
    come in DD 5.1 and DTS flavours, and
    whichever you choose you'll be left
    with a full-blooded, dynamic mix that
    kicks ass as well as the stars do.

    Extras

    More entertaining than the film is the
    feature-length audio commentary by
    Bey Logan and leading lady Maggie Q.
    The duo have a great repartee and are
    completely honest in their opinion of
    the film and its production history. Also
    included on the first disc are promo
    trailers for other HKL and Premier Asia
    titles. On Disc Two you'll find interviews
    with actors Anya, Andrew Lin, Almen
    Wong and Monica Lo, four trailers, a
    20-minute Making of..., a photo gallery,
    A Day in the Life with Maggie Q
    featurette, behind-the-scenes footage,
    a location guide hosted by Bey Logan
    and biographies.

    Verdict

    A great release for a fun film that ultimately
    falls a little short of the high standards we
    expect from HKL.
