Don't get you hopes up upon seeing that this DVD has the original language -- it's still been cut (see my review for more info). Still, this is better than the usual bare-bones treatment Miramax/Dimension usually give HK movies. I can't really recommend buying this, since it has been edited (and it is overpriced anyway), but it's a decent way to check out the movie if you want to give it a rent. At least you'll get a good laugh of tweaked-out Quentin Tarantino mis-pronouncing Chinese names (like saying "Wong Fei Ho" instead of "Wong Fei Hung").

Rating: **
