The HK Version is actually the preferred version: It has been specially re-mastered by Tsui Hark for the 3D version.
- The aspect ratio has been opened up completely
- The color grading has been changed/adapted for a better 3D experience through glasses
- It contains the "original" mandarin track

Just wanted to point this out for those who like this film.

wonderful, stunning 3D but I find this movie really hard work to get through, like a lot of Asian cinema to be honest. I can never get through it in one sitting and find the plot hard to follow and the multitude of different characters difficult to identify. However the visual presentation is second to none.

Not sure I'd put that label on all Asian cinema! There are thousands of great Asian movies. From the cinema of Akira Kurosawa and Studio Ghibli in Japan to Wong Kar-wai and Johnnie To in Hong Kong to Bong Joon-ho and Park Chan-wook in Korea, some of the best movies I've ever seen in my life are Asian.

Flying Swords is one of the battiest, most incoherent plots ever in a somewhat critically acclaimed movie. The writing rivals what you'd find in the IMDB bottom 250. The craziness is kind of a Tsui Hark staple, but Young Detective Dee and Tiger Mountain were much more enjoyable story-telling.

It's an interesting movie and I'm a fan of the action, though I agree, it's best absorbed in smaller viewings if limited on time, as I like to fast forward to the action scenes and the ending. Awesome, strong filmed 3D layers and some pop outs.

I was only speaking from my own perspective at least. I find the vast majority of Asian cinema pretty hard to digest. I don't like cartoons so I've never watched any Studio Ghibli but I know I would not enjoy them just from the look of them. Kurosawa is really not my thing at all. I think the last Asian movie I really enjoyed was The Good, The Bad, The Weird which I think might be a Korean movie.

That said I do love Casshern and Goemon, both Japanese productions I think.

Before i go for the US issue of this can someone just confirm about the subtitles. In the UK version the English subs are only with the 'hard of hearing' option. Does the US version have normal English subs option for the Manderin track?
Thanks

I don't think this is true, there are regular non-HOH subs too.

The English subs in the UK version are formatted to appear within the 3D image but (I guess because they aren't always in the same position) my brain just couldn't handle them, I had to watch the film dubbed.

I've since bought the Limited Edition from Hong Kong so that will be the first time I watch this with subtitles.

The US release has proper subtitles on the 2D disc, but only SDH (hard of hearing) subtitles on the 3D disc. I emailed Indomina Releasing about the problem, but they never responded.

Damn! Thanks for that. Won't get it then. I find the SDH really distracting ( no offense to hard of hearing folk!)
