Best version of Once Upon a Time in China?

I got the Columbia Tristar 3 DVD boxset for my birthday and was wondering if there was a better version available and if so why it is better. Thanks!!!

Hong Kong Legends is better for several reasons. If you aren't region free, Region 1 is about the best you can do although it's disappointing.

To the best of my knowledge, the Hong Kong Legends (HKL) release of OUATIC is THE version to get (as long as you can play region 2 PAL discs). HKL remastered the film and the picture is truly great - especially compared with the Columbia release. I'm definitely glad I picked up this series on the HKL label instead of going with the US releases.

Check out www.asiandvdguide.com to compare the different versions available.

I own the HKL version of parts 1-3 and they are all excellent. If you're not codefree already, do yourself a favor and pick up the Malata.
