    Hi Loafer,

    Saw a friend's copy:

    - Picture quality is good, but there are minor bits of grain. This is more down to the nature of the fact it's an Asian film, than the DVD mastering itself. (Asian films, rarely look as good as their Western counterparts.)

    - Audio is good. DD5.1 is relatively clear.

    - Subtitles are good, clear and more coherent than previous versions I've seen on TV and UK VHS.

    - Film is completely uncensored this time around. (Prior versions on TV were edited, although old UK VHS edition also had minor edits made.)

    I didn't get to watch any of the extras, but have been told that they are worth watching. Mainly consisting of Deleted Scenes, Cast And Crew Interviews, and a Bey Logan (Hong Kong film expert) audio commentary.

    Pooch
