    I have searched, but have not seen any reviews here for this dvd. I am going to pick it up for my kids later today, but was wanting to read some reviews first. I have seen a few in other places, but I think we have some of the best reviews here.

    I'd look for the 1956 version, which is a 2-disc SE. [​IMG]

    The Jackie Chan version is abysmal.

    The kids love the Jackie Chan version.

    I love the original which was for a different audience. It
    really needs a Todd AO projection however to be fully appreciated.

    I find that if you pretend you're five years old, you can enjoy the Jackie Chan Around the World in 80 Days. [​IMG] But only if you do that. It doesn't work for adults. [​IMG]

    Adults can find their Jackie Chan relief by treating themselves to the new anamorphic transfer box sets of Project A 1 &2, and the three Police Story movies. [​IMG] Now THOSE are great movies. [​IMG]
