    Pretty sure the Dragon Lord Blu is already available at Best Buy as part of their early release exclusives and it is English dub only ('cause it is too damn hard to include the original language and subtitles )

    If its STILL the English dub....means it is about 2 mins shorter than the other country releases...

    Lame. I still might get it at that price though. Wasn't this released in HK in the Chinese cut through Fortune Star as an upscale? I wonder if this is a better transfer, albeit of the shorter version?

    Fights are well edited, cool future technology is used, overacting foreigners employed as extras, bickering girl characters doing stupid shit, dodgy CGI (straight out of the 1990's!!) IMAGINATIVE fight/action scenes. famous cameos, dumb humour!!....and story that doesnt really make sense

    Yes, if this IS the last big-budget all out action movie he is going to make, then this is a good way to end it....
    Watched this tonight and more or less agree with you on this Sukebanboy. Really didn't think I was going to for most of the movie -- the first 2/3 or so I thought were really bad, for the most part. But by they time they got to the bad guy's (very Bond Villiain-esque) lair, it turned around pretty well. All the action from there on out seemed pretty great...not up to the standards of his 80's classics obviously, but WAY better than I had really expected.

    I'm curious what you're referring to here...Are you talking about the character that shows up in the hospital room? PM me if you think it's too spoilery to post in the general thread.

    APRONIKOFF..yes I am....Think he dropped the ball on that one...Would have been the perfect way to tie up everything!....and it SEEMED like ti was going to go through with it too..but it was not to be...

    As for the pacing of the movie, it was in line with OPERATION CONDOR I think...Start was good......middle third idiot girls/ strange comedy/ losing its way with bits that don't really work (pirates???)...Then picks up at the end!....Yes it wasnt really up to the speed/ choreography of his old stuff...but not bad for a guy of 58!!!..Blows his RUSH HOUR/ TUXEDO dreck out of the water, thats for sure!...and you could tell he was having fun making it and being in control of everything!!

    A nice way to end making this kind of movie in his career!...Something that, for the past few years, I NEVER thought I would be able to say!!!
