This DVD is pretty expensive for what you get in terms of extras, but otherwise it's an okay disc. The English dub is cheesy to say the least, but thankfully Columbia has included the original Cantonese soundtrack, which has been cleaned up a bit. Unfortunately, they didn't do anything with the picture. It's nothing too bad, but it does look a bit dark and faded. If you already have the HK version of this, I wouldn't bother grabbing this one.

Rating: **
