Police Story, is it ever going to be released in R1?

Well? I'd like to have all three in R1, think it'll happen anytime soon?

I thought you were talking about the old TV series until I read your post.

There's a nice new r0 box set just released in Hong Kong. There's even a review of that very box set right here on this page.

according to all reviews, that box set isn't all that great because of sync issues with the audio and really really shitty subtitles.

^ Exactly. Perhaps Sony or Dimension will get a hold of em. I don't really care if their dubbed if it's Jackie doing it, the story isn't exactly the focal point of the film for me.

Exactly. Excuse me if I don't hold my breath for an american super-duper-special edition of this box set.

Yeah, I know they released 3 (Supercop) over here and I like it, but it's a pretty shitty DVD. The transfer looks like a VHS tape and of course, it's cut.

Hong Kong Legends will be releasing the film later this year in R2... so, i'd wait and get that, especially if you have patience.

Huh? Where did you hear this? That's just nog gonna happen. Dimension Films holds the rights to Supercop all over the world. That's why there's only one uncut version of that film out right now, and it's in Hong Kong.

I get a hunch this might pop up in the Fox/Fortune Star label somewhere down the line. My Chinese R0 disc is uncut but non-anamorphic. Will gladly upgrade if it ever appears.

When it does eventually come to R1, I seriously doubt you'll get any better.
