Germany Master With Cracked Fingers



I've just discovered this classic JC has English subs and immediately popped off to Amazon to import it. Do any of you fine fellows already have it, if so is it an upscale or genuine HD?

I'm getting it regardless but would like to know what I'm getting into in advance.

I'm right in thinking this and Fantasy Mission Force are the only two German HK JC releases with English subs right?

Yes, it's real HD. It looks nevertheless like crap.

I think these two are the only ones with English subs.

Cheers for getting back so fast. Are we talking old elements or botched DNR'd abortion 'like crap'?

I just mean the DNR. It looks very processed.

As much as DNR sucks I don't put a lot of stock in screen shots. I can live with a smidge of the stuff so hopefully it's not OTT. Thanks for your help, I expect it will temper expectations. If it turns out to be super DNR heavy it will be an easy upgrade if another edition ever sees the light of day.

I posted this and the other movie in this topic about 2 years ago: https://forum.blu-ray.com/showthread...+#post11641705 ... worth to subscribe to that topic. I wish there would be a single topic where all JC news would come, sadly the information is spread all around this forum in who knows what topics.

I just saw your answer in the other topic I linked to, you forgot about this release? (you posted: "Thanks for posting those German BDS. I. Would have assumed they weren't English friendly and I'm actually a pretty big Mission Force fan.")

Yep completely forgot about Cracked Fingers. Fantasy Mission Force I remembered but not a sausage of info on Crack Fingers did I retain. I've still yet to get Fantasy Mission Force despite quite liking it.

I watched Master with Cracked Fingers tonight. I might have been too tired but it didn't really do much for me. The MahJong fight scene is excruciatingly bad. My guess is the comedy gets lost in translation. The inclusion of the US cut in SD is great. The alternative fight is much better IMO.

As far as the picture quality unfortunately the DNR is a bit nasty. It's not unwatchable though. I can't help but feel that it would look great without it.
