    Oh but it is worth it.

    1&3 are good films in their own right, PQ is excellent throughout, but its those DTS mixes that steal the show.

    Start saving for a new subwoofer now, 'cos they'll get the better of it.

    That's the one I have. (actually, I have the 3 dvd version without the bonus disc).

    It might not look legit, but trust me, it is superbit in PQ terms and most definately DTS (the 8-10Mbps rate on my dvdp would seem to confirm this).

    Be warned though, their that price for a reason. They are usually factory off-cuts or runs that didn't meet QC standards. The seller sent out replacement discs very quickly for my Alien quadrilogy boxset though.

    I would double check this is genuine japanese, there have been a lot of HK/malasian boot legs of this on ebay. The genine japanse dvd comes in a clear amaray case with double sided art, the disc is golden colour and it has a plastic sleeve that goes over the dvd case. A genuine japanese copy cost quite a lot to import in the first place so expect to pay top dollar!

    Yeah, had a feeling it might be.

    I can honestly recommend it though. As I said before, it looks and sounds the business (in fact, one of the best superbit titles I own). Not bad for a bootleg!

    The superbit doesn't have a superior picture to the R2 standard edition.

    The Japanese superbit has a half bitrate DTS soundtrack, be careful buying any R1 copies with DTS, and there are shedloads of uncorrected soundtracks out there too.

    Well, to my untrained eyes the bootleg superbit looks superb. That standard R2 must be something special
