    Mine had no insert either, this is happening on more and more new releases.

    Might as well get used to it because it's going to continue.

    I guess that inserts are too hard to include in dvd's nowadays, probably because of our bad economy.The studio exec's are gonna need that extra .000000000007 cents per dvd to help them buy their new porshes. So remember whenever you buy a dvd that doesnt include a insert, you're helping a poor feeble studio exec afford his 1000 horsepower sportscar.

    Can't you just photocopy the one from Rush Hour and put it into Shanghai Nights?

    So did it have those rumored longer fight scenes inserted into the movie?

    Not inserted into the movie but included in the extras, along with deleted scenes. The four uncut fights are the library fight, the wax museum fight, and the tent and barge, and Big Ben fights -- which I wish had remained uncut in the movie itself, especially since all these deleted/extended scenes are presented in non-anamorphic murky workprint transfers. It's quite interesting to see them in this raw form (especially to hear the original sound) but at the very least they could have made anamorphic transfers. Or is there some reason why workprints can't be transferred anamorphically?
