Another in Dimension's "Jet Li Collection." This one doesn't fare as well as the rest -- it's been cut from the HK version and the dub is terrible. It also has some of the ugliest menu screens I've even seen and the "extras" are anything but; there's a couple of preview trailers and that's it. However, the picture is a lot nicer than the cropped one featured on the World Video DVD version. If you can't find the HK version, this one's at least worth a rental.

Rating: **
