I haven't seen the HKL version but even being a huge JC fan this is one of my less favorite movies. There are a couple of scenes that make it worth seeing atleast once though; the arcade and the cinema fights.

Oh crap. Just my luck, I bought Purple Storm from them two weeks ago for 16 pounds. Sh*t.

Does anyone know if Armour of God is a Region 0 disc? I really wanna get that, but there's still no word on a region-free disc for American X-Boxes.

I'm pretty sure all HKL DVDs are R2.

Armour of God is Region 2.

Nemein: Certain HKL discs have been printed as Region 0. Possibly out of faulty mastering; Iron Monkey is one of them.

Hm.. how often does Bensonsworld have these kinds of sales for their HKL discs? Do you think that it would be worth it to get Miracles and/or Armour of God in hopes that someone will release a region-free disc for American X-Boxes in the near future, or just wait until that comes out and wait for another sale like this?

BTW the HKL sale lasts until the end of May. They also have the Stargate SG1 DVDs on sale for 1/2 price (I'm tempted but I'm still hoping they release R1 versions), that lasts until the end of June.

Frankly, I doubt anyone would release region-free discs for US X-boxes in particular ... however, some HKL discs are actually region-free (SITES, Blacksheep affair among them, if I am not mistaken). Check http://asiandvdguide.com for details.

What makes you say that? Blaze already released a region free disc for the PS2, so I don't see why they or someone else wouldn't do that for the American X-Box.

Communication problem :)

Completely misunderstood your post ... sorry about that. I read it like: "will somebody produce region-free movie DVDs specifically for the US PS2?" - hey, it was just too late in the evening, I guess! Stupid me ...
