    Warner is reissuing Mr. Nice Guy, First Strike, Rumble in the Bronx, and Drunken Master 2 in Hong Kong this summer. There will be NO English subs! That and they're all now Region 3. This is TOTALLY out of line! First the deny them to us properly in R1, and now they're denying the English speaking people in the home market, and forcing them to watch the horrible dubs. ENOUGH!

    GIVE ME OSL OR GIVE ME DEATH!

    The Warner International R3 discs have English, Cantonese, & Mandarin language tracks. No English subtitles though.

    The worst thing thing about this is that these R3 discs, save for Drunken Master 2, are the EXACT same cuts as the U.S. releases. Rumble In The Bronx even has the New Line Cinema logo before it.

    Until 1997, Hong Kong was a British colony. There are a LOT of English speakers there. In fact, most of the films in theaters have English and usually Mandarin subs right on the print.

    I hate evil DVD companies. Don't put a lock/code on anything. Make our lives easier instead of yours Mr. CEO! THey couldn't possibly make $2 million a year instead of $4. No way JOSE!
