Dragon Dynasty has done some nice work on their standard DVDs, hopefully Bey can do the same with Blu-ray releases.

but for $13 and change, I am in.

This will only be worth it if it is uncut. If not, you can count me out. And Bey Logan has nothing to do with their releases. All he does is provide commentary, which is not always the best commentary, to be honest.

I thought he assisted acquiring properties for Weinstein.

Bey Logan was Vice President of Asian Acquisitions & Co-Productions for The Weinstein Company in Hong Kong.

However, The Weinstein Company renegotiated the licensing deals for films they distributed earlier under Dimension: My Father Is A Hero (The Enforcer), Fist of Legend, Police Story III: Supercop (Supercop), and The Legend of Fong Sai Yuk. Essentially, moving the properties from the Dimension/Disney agreement umbrella (meaning Dimension films distributed by Disney stayed with Disney) to the Weinstein Company's Dragon Dynasty.

Bey Logan stepped down from his position at The Weinstein Company as of October 1, 2009. Although, he really has not completely left and will still act as an acquisition consultant for them.

Oddly, after this announcement, The Killer was finally announced. I'm not implying anything here but it does seem rather odd that a title delayed for three years is finally being released after a "Hong Kong cinema expert" stepped down.

Thanx for the info.

Nice disclaimer......

that would be amusing that the minute he stepped down all of a sudden the floodgates opened.

If this is gonna be the same Dragon Dynasty cut but on blu ray, they can shove it. The DVD was terrible. The only good version of this film is the Japanese DVD.

Apparently it says on Amazon's website that it will be 103 minutes, but I never trust those numbers from Amazon.

The "uncut" Ritek DVD is actually an extended cut, not the original Hong Kong cut. The aforementioned Japanese DVD is, however, the original Hong Kong cut. So that being said, the runtime of the Japanese DVD is the one to go by.

I have the Dragon Dynasty DVD, which also says 103 minutes. However, the only visual differences between the DD cut and the HK cut are the opening/ending credits and the last shot with Chin Siu Ho jogging with the Jing Wu students. Now, while I say "only", it's still not the original HK cut. It'd be nice if DD took the time out to master a new HD transfer from the HK cut (I doubt the original Dimension print from the late 90s was mastered in HD), but I guess we'll find out in a couple of months.

From what I understand, DD's FOL was already created from an HD master (which looked great on the SDVD) so more than likely, the BD will present the same version. I do hope they improve the English subtitles, which began fine and then became complete dubtitles for the last quarter of the film.

Yeah, the subtitles were a bigger problem than the few seconds of missing footage. I've never seen it happen where the subtitles start off fine, then go into full-fledged dubtitles. Worst part which made it blatantly obvious? The part where the Japanese general holds the "sick men of Asia" sign, and the subs read "it reads 'Jing Wu is closed'" *facepalm*
