    Caution. Current reports indicate that there is no way of having English subtitles for just the Japanese language sections. You either have them throughout, or not at all. I'm debating whether it's worth it just for a little more gore.

    cdwow have the R3 dvd for 9.99 and claim it to be the uncut Hong Kong / Japanese version.

    How true is that ?

    ...Very true! And via one of CDWow's sundry money off links it's only nine quid delivered or cheaper. It's a shame it's not December otherwise I'd buy twenty copies and that'd be all my Xmas shopping done.

    Just ordered this - used the link on the CDWow thread and it gave me £1.50 off.
    Then used a 50p voucher and one of my last two £1.50 trustcard vouchers to get the price down to £6.49 :smashin:

    As Ive posted elsewhere, I think if you get the region 3 that has English DTS and Chinese DD, with Chinese selectable subs only, then I fully expect to see burnt on english subs on the movie itself during the Japanese spoken bits. Or else how could an english speaking viewer of whom there are a great many in China / Asia, understand the Japanese bits? Clearly they are catering to the English speakers by giving it DTS.

    This is the version CD wow have and Im not concerned at all

    I agree with you Shed if it has and english soundtrack the subtitles should be part of that as a whole. :)

    But that's logical thinking. I hope you're right though :D

    Either way, it's only £8.49 and you still get to see the uncut version. If you decided to sell it you would definitely get more than just your money back. So I'm not too worried either. But I do hope it's a good video transfer and that it has english subtitles.

    Er... I'm sure someone will, but you'll have to wait for it to be released first!

    (released tomorrow though, so should receive within next few days)

    Err... sorry to pee on your chips, folks, but CD Wow cocked up big time. The R3 they are selling is NOT the uncut version, and has NO English subs. :thumbsdow

    I will be returning my copy to CD Wow once it arrives but still want an Uncut version of the film and would ideally go for the Thai version as its listed as PAL but I dont know if that is a mis-print or not as they have the running time down as 113mins which is the same as the NTSC R2 Japanese release and due to PAL speed up its impossible for them to both be the same time :confused:

    I am starting to think Uncut when referring to the HK and Korean versions means the film on the DVD is the same version of the film that was shown in the cinema in that country, it doesnt mean it is the same Uncut version of the film that is on the R2 Japanese release, could this be the case?

    On DVDfromAsia there is a message on the page for the Thai Uncut release mentioning the full colour fight scene etc, but the message isn't on the page for the HK release. I've ordered the Thai version from them.

    The HK version on their site is the same release that CD Wow are selling so I would hope no one from this forum orders that version :rolleyes:

    Well, considering that costs approx £30 before shipping, it's certainly not the cheapest!

    I found this website based in the UK that is offering the Region 3 Thai release for £15.99 delivered or £15.49 is you get it from their auction on eBay, think they are worth a try?

    No need to post the same thing twice mate.

    Also, some people have recieved their copy of the HK release from CD Wow and confirm what they said, it is cut with b/w scenes and no english subtitles so its pretty clear now that if you want the Uncut version of the film you have to get the R3 Thai release or the R2 Japanese release.
