This is a very good DVD. The animated menus look great and the "white rabbit" and "red pills" are a unique way of getting more out of the DVD (if you come across one of them, either hitting the enter or angle button will bring you to new footage). The commentary (like most) is blasé, but the documentary is pretty cool, giving major props to Yuen Woo-Ping. One major gripe though -- there's no trailer! Also, the white rabbit and red pill extras tend to crash older DVD players and most DVD-ROM drives. If you liked the movie, you should definitely spend the extra money on this DVD.

Rating: ****
