Purchase this DVD from itchee.com for $17.98. To my surprise it was in 2.35:1 widescreen and DD/5.1 sound. The picture quality was good for a 20+ year movie and the sound is mainly mono. But that aside, this is a must have movie for Jet Li fans and martial arts fans. This is Jet Li's first movie at 16 years old and a classic. The five main stars are martial arts champions of their particular specialty. If you want to see authentic shaolin temple kung-fu with no special effects and no "strings-attached". They filmed the movie on location at Shao Lin Temple. This DVD is a must have !!!

Thanks for the review.
Pre-ordered the DVD at cd-later, and I am still waiting one month after release.

Can't wait to see this movie for the 1st time!

cinemaphile7,

I've never heard of cd-later. I got my DVD a week after ordering from Itchee.com. I had a similiar experience to yours with ordering this title from asiancd.com. They made me wait for a month and after countless e-mails requesting order status, they refunded my money without an explanation or an apology for the delay. Needless to say, I gave them a piece of my mind and have never been back.

Good Luck, I hope you'll like the movie as much as I did.

You'll see this name often used in this forum.
It is referred to cdnow, notorious known for slow delivery.
Get the joke?
