    Wow what a set. I remember watching DANGERFREAKS ages ago and liked it, all those docs on Stuntmen look interesting. Kung Fu Killers I've always wanted to watch, those extra films are more interesting than the main feature.

    Anyone interested in this for the SD version of Stunt Rock may want to know that supposedly the AR is wrong and it's 'stretched to fill the screen.'

    So it looks like those who have received the replacement disc are complaining that... it's not corrected and Stunt Rock is still messed up. Umbrella are looking into fixing it.

    THE MAN FROM HONG KONG (AKA THE DRAGON FLIES / 1975) (PRE-ORDER) (BLU-RAY)
    Starring: Roger Ward, George Lazenby, Jimmy Wang Yu, Frank Thring, Ros Spiers, Rebecca Gilling, Hugh Keays-Byrne
    Directed By: Brian Trenchard-Smith
    Composed By: Juan Quintero

    “A rare success, both in terms of blending Eastern and Western action styles and of providing a snapshot of how no-holds-barred Aussie cinema was at the time. Wang Yu…gives a charismatic performance, and his own fighting is as brutal as it gets. George Lazenby pulls all out the stops, both in doing a lot of his fighting…and stunts, something rare for the Western stars in these types of movies.”
    – Craig Lines, DenofGeek.com

    Strap in for a spectacular example from the golden age of “Ozploitation” moviemaking: writer/director/genre master Brian Trenchard-Smith’s full-bore action caper The Man from Hong Kong (1975, first seen in the U.S. as The Dragon Flies). It blazingly showcases the savvy grit and sleek fighting moves of two icons – Hong Kong martial-arts superstar Jimmy Wang Yu and one-time James Bond portrayer George Lazenby – playing lawman/gangster antagonists in a battle-royal array of aerial, vehicular, and close-combat stunts exploding across a gleaming Sydney cityscape and executed with a mix of cool precision and edge-stretching luck that will leave you breathless.

    I guess it is nice to have options, but can't see any reason to pick up the TT over the Umbrella.
