Hong Kong Legends-UK region 2 PAL (as if you didn't know ), and it's now reasonably cheap from http://www.bensonsworld.co.uk/mdv12.htm , or http://www.under18.org.uk/search.cfm (2 p+p out of Europe, as some people have stated). Only version that's anamorphic to my knowledge, with english dub aswell as the cantonese ost.

I dont' think so

I think you are refering to Body Weapon as the movie that HKL cut slightly for sexual content. The HKL Blacksheep Affair is UNCUT. I have both the Mei Ah and HKL versions and they are the same. However, picture quality is different with the HKL DVD slightly better by 20%. If you are not R2 PAL capable, you should be happy with the Mei Ah version.

Yep, my mistake. I deleted my previous post so as not to confuse others.

Trigger, I didn't even know there was a US release for this ?? Is it by a major studi oor just a Tai Seng import ?? I have the HK version and its ok in terms of quality. THe picutre isn't too bad, but the sound is kind of flat....for a more recent movie I would have thought it would be 5.1 DD, but it ain't. Its worth the 5 bucks eaily that you will toss on hivizone or dddhouse. The movie itself was better than I thought. The main actor Man Cheuk Chiu (or Vincient Zhao) is the main bad guy from Fong Sai Yuk. He has some great moves. I think he got what it takes to be a big star.....its too bad he isn't given more spotlight. There are some good fights and action sequences in the movie.

He starred in The Blade (1995) - directed by Tsui Hark - one of my all-time favorite films! HK or US or wherever. He's excellent in The Blade.

Zhao Wen Zhuo

Zhao Wen Zhuo is a Mainland Chinese actor. He has been compared to Jet Li (his style is similar), but he lacks the charm that Li has. He's an awsome fighter and his style is a perfect fit for the screen.

He was also in GREEN SNAKE

http://www.hkflix.com/xq/asp/filmID.881/qx/details.htm

and was the star in MAHJONG DRAGON

http://www.hkflix.com/xq/asp/filmID.112/qx/details.htm

MAHJONG DRAGON is an under-rated film that has some great fight scenes in it.
