I agree, and that goalie looked a LOT like Bruce Lee! But I would want the Hong Kong version, not the edited down, rescored US version.

I will def get Shaolin Soccer on Blu. It's goofball at it's finest. I hope his remake of The Green Hornet will be good.

Does anyone know if the quality on the Korean release is better than the UK release? It has much better packaging but I'm curious if anyone knows if the transfer is better... especially because it wasn't as good on the UK disc for the Director's Cut.

Nothing relates to him, it's a homage, through one of his brothers. He even looks like Bruce Lee.
Too much nostalgia interrupts progress. Looking forward to something new.

Various cuts of the quirkier Asian material--
The US version focuses on the sports parody, shortens the dance number, and streamlines out some of the plot about the coach working for Coach Evil (they no longer carry away his shoe), but it's still good enough, especially for kids.

(And miles funnier than the sloppy "Kung Fu Hustle", that unfairly got all the press and Sony backing after Soccer's popularity.)

Damn, I wish they would release a American Blu-Ray! If it did so well in US theaters, then why would they not release a Blu-Ray?

Same here. It has both cuts(well, the extended version of the theatrical cut anyway) and it blows away the old Hong Kong DVD I imported back in 2002. I remember my buddies and I being completely blown away by this movie. I can't even remember where I heard of it and what prompted me to order it, but I'm glad I did. One of the funniest, wackiest flicks I've ever seen.
