Out of the Dark and Fist of Fury 2???

Fist of Fury 1991 - that looks like the artwork on the China Star DVD - sort of. Looks like a bootleg to me. Anyway - if you read the description, it says there are no subtitles, so it's possible it is the China Star version (or else it's a copy of it). The Mei Ah version has subtitles and is just fine... and is cheap. The film isn't one of my favorites, but it's worth picking up (just not the one on ebay).

Out of the Dark - as far as I know, this isn't available on DVD. This is almost certainly a bootleg. I have this film on VCD and it's a great flick. I hope it gets a decent legit DVD release.

It's probably just me, but I will never ever ever never never never ever buy any asian DVDs from ebay. Ever.

www.sensasian.com sells the VCD of Out of the Dark. Unfortunately it's a Pan N Scan transfer, so some of the burned-in subs run off the screen.

re: Fist of Fury 1991 2 - the DTS logo makes it look even more questionable.

Both discs are known bootlegs. Fist of Fury 1991 2 is available as a Mandarin only subtitled print from Scholar Films (I believe) in Taiwan. Out of the Dark is VCD only at this point.

We are talking about Fist of Fury 1991 PART 2, not Part 1. The only Cantonese dvd release is the OOP Chinastar, non subtitled release.

My bad - I guess I forgot this even existed and when I checked asiandvdguide I kinda thought it was the same movie with a different name or something. You're right.

Who currently owns the rights to this title anyway?
