    OK, looks to my eyes like the Crime Story/Protector double feature are upscales. The Fortune Star logo at the beginning indicates this, the softness and lack of serious detail more or less confirms it. They look better than the DVDs and the extras are decent. Both movies also get lossless Audio.

    Bah. Fucking Fortune Star. Also, according to this review, in addition to being upscales, Crime Story has dubtitles instead of proper subtitles.

    Yeah, checked the subs last night and they translate the English track. I don't speak Cantonese so I can't confirm what the differences are but I'm positive there's going to be changes between the Chinese and English language tracks.

    Jackie Chan calls US 'most corrupt' country in the world

    HONG KONG (AFP) - Hong Kong action hero Jackie Chan has once again provoked criticism, this time from an American blogger, after suggesting on Chinese television that the US is the "most corrupt" country in the world.

    "When you talk about corruption -- the whole world, is there corruption in the United States? The most corrupt in the world!" the Rush Hour star, who has made headlines recently for his controversial views, told Phoenix TV last month.

    Chan reaffirmed his view after the show's host questioned him -- "Of course! Where did the great breakdown come from? The world, the United States started it," Chan said, referring to the financial crisis and gesticulating as he spoke.

    His comments were rebuked Thursday by Max Fisher, a foreign affairs blogger for the Washington Post, who called them "anti-American" rhetoric that was rooted in China's insecurity.

    "To the degree that Chan's comments were anti-American, they likewise reflect a common Chinese view of the United States, one that is rooted not just in attitudes toward America but in China's proud but sometimes insecure view of itself," Fisher said.

    Jackie Chan also said China is a relatively young country, where in the first half of its history it was "bullied by so many people," and that it only achieved "real success" in the past decade.

    "Our country's leaders admit they are corrupted, etcetera. We are improving -- I can see our country is constantly improving and learning," he said, adding that everyone is making an issue out of China because it is "powerful" now.

    Chan, who is known for his martial arts skills and daring stunt work, sparked criticism in Hong Kong, which was returned to China in 1997, after he reportedly told a Chinese magazine last December that protest in the city should be restricted.

    In the same interview, he said that he was bullied by Hong Kong triads and had to hide in the United States. He also said he needed to carry a gun everyday to protect himself, leading to a police investigation.
