    I finally got this DVD tonight, and I thought that the movie was pretty good.

    And the DVD was of surprisingly good quality.

    One problem that I had with the DVD though, was there were parts where the subtitles disapeared. Did anyone else have this happen?

    That was a mistake made by the manufacturers. Everyone's disc has it, and there's no way it will ever be corrected, considering that the film bombed in HK. Any US disc will hopefully be fixed, although if Miramax decides to dub it and add a rap soundtrack, it won't matter...[​IMG]

    Jason,

    My disc is like that too. I thought something was wrong especially since this subtitle problem happens right in the beginning. Hopefully the US release will fix that as well as fix some of the horrible translation, that is of course, if the US DVD isn't butchered and released as a dub only.

    I had been thinking before I got the disk that I wouldn't have to worry about buying the Di$ney version, but it looks as though I will have to now.

    Of course, the rap soundtrack, and dub, with 30 minutes of the film cut from it, along with the re-titling, will probably make me NOT BUY IT.

    On a side note, I don't see how this movie is going to make any money here in the US. I thought that it was enjoyable, but FAR from something the mainstream would accept.

    I think this movie confirmed that the great Tsui Hark has lost his magic touch.

    Good Special effects with no soul.
