My Kung Fu 12 Kicks DVD Review
SRP: £7.99

Picture

Originally filmed in 2.35:1 and released this way in the US albeit letterboxed, we on the other hand get 4:3 P&S. One of the worst I've ever seen on DVD, you name it, it has it. Scratches, white marks, faces cut off, very soft image and loads of motion blur. Sure its low budget, but this is ridiculous. I shudder to think what this would look like blown up on a massive screen. Terrible.

Sound

Only one option available here and it's a dubbed English Dolby Digital 2.0 track. No Cantonese track or any English subtitles. The dubbed track is downright awful, surely missing out on detail from the original and any chance of enjoying the film is compromised by the comedy voice acting. Lots of crackle and hiss does not help either. Very poor indeed.

Extras

Not much except for some web links, a UK promo trailer and some DVD covers of future exciting releases.

Any chance you had of enjoying the film is totally ruined by the terrible picture and awful dubbing. If this was a favourite of yours then check out the Region 1 release, it has by all accounts a pretty excellent (if non-anamorphic) image and more interesting extras.
