    I thoroughly recomend it. The sound and picture quality is excellent. Some of the action scenes are superb. If you like this genre (as I do) then it's a must for your collection.
    Everyone thats borrowed it gave it back with a big grin on their face so i give it :smashin: :smashin: :smashin: up

    Do remember the Hk R3 dvd of Volcano high is the international cut and is missing 20 mins. HKL are releasing it under there Premier Asia label which is why i sold my Hk 2 disc set. Great film with some superb CGI - the Korean movie makers just get better and better.

    Not just an anime fan I love all asian cinema. Might have to go for the R3 until the R2 is released, same as I did with Ichi the killer.

    Why do region 3 discs get cut so much? I know their censorship laws regarding sex are worse than the uk (no pubes etc) but I never thought violence was an issue with the far east?

    Easy way to solve that, make it law that all of the women shave:rotfl:

    With regards to the censorship laws i dont think the cuts have anything to do with the cuts, have you seen some of the things that come out of Asia? Ichi the killer, hentai and the likes, hentai is basically animated porn that often depicts underage girls, bestiality etc. I think the cuts are more likely so that it can be seen by a wider audience.

    another big thumbs up! very entertaining action, comedy, sci-fi film. I always said it was like a cross between The Matrix (mental wirework and super powers) and the Faculty (kids kicking' the teachers' asses).
