The Twins Effect

Manufacturer: Speedy (catalog number 678)

Format: widescreen

Subtitles: Chinese/English electronically printed on the bottom of the screen; easy to read

Picture: a bit muted and dark, but otherwise okay -- very little pixellation

Sound: very good with a lot of bass response

Notes: has trailers for the movie and "Heroic Duo" on the first disc, and a "making of" featurette after the movie (most of which is in English) on the second disc. The VCD also came with 5 cross-shaped "trading cards" (one with each main cast member and a group shot) and it was packaged in a DVD case rather than a CD one. Finally, there was VCD playback software included which immeadiately when you put the discs in a PC drive.

Rating: ***
