I was kind of coaxed into buying this one after Columbia stupidly decided not to release a widescreen version on VHS. The movie does look a lot better letterboxed than pan-and-scanned, especially during the frantic gun battles. If you have a good sound system, TRK should get your speakers rattling, especially in Dolby 5.1, though the bass is a bit much for my (and my neighbor's) taste. The featurette is okay, it's basically one of those fluff promo pieces, but there is a small interview with Chow in it. The DVD was recently put on Columbia's budget line, and for $10, it makes a pretty sound buy.

Rating: ***
