    I rented Hard Boiled yesterday. The movie was great but the quality of the DVD was pitiful. I was happy to see that the movie was presented in it's OAR but I found the DVDs image quality to be very soft and on par with VHS. I also was not impressed with mono soundtrack they had on there.Is there a better version of this movie out for R1? Something that looks alot better and has either a better sounding mono track or a remixed DD5.1 track? thanks.

    You're talkin' about the WinStar version, right? Unfortunately, that's the best version currently available in R1. The R2 UK version is anamorphic, however I heard that the picture quality is even worse.

    The best is the Criterion Collection version. It even has John Woo's commentary. The UPC is 15515-00904.
