I'm going to keep this review short and sweet:
Basically, you will want this set if you're a Bruce Lee film buff, plain and simple. They way they are presented here - high definition, multiple audio tracks (chinese and english), commentary, etc - is the best I've seen them (trust me, I've owned Bruce Lee DVDs and Blu-rays from other countries). You even get a load of extra features, documentaries and a bonus disc that contains even more features!
This collection is decorated with rare photos (I'm a huge Bruce Lee fan and even I haven't come across photos like these) and a nice book with some Bruce Lee history. I'm not particularly a fan of the bookcase-packaging, but at least it goes well with my James Bond (Bond: 50 Blu-ray collection) set.
Again, ignore the negative reviews and purchase Shout! Factory's Bruce Lee Legacy Collection with confidence!
Shout! Factory's `Bruce Lee Legacy Collection' arrives in `true' high definition on October 22! "Bruce Lee Legacy Collection" Blu-ray & DVD Booklet Packaging After weeks of delays and "quality" concerns, we are happy to report that a corrected version of Shout! Factory's highly-anticipated Bruce Lee Legacy Collection now has a release date set for October 22nd. In addition to the mislabeled discs being fixed, the set will contain what was promised from the beginning: True HD remasters of all the Bruce Lee movies. Shannon Lee also posted on Facebook: From Shout! Factory: "We discovered that we had not been given the recently restored transfers used for the Blu-rays in Hong Kong and Japan, but rather the original masters done a few years ago in Canada. We therefore acquired the improved masters, and have included them on this new set, for a truly definitive Bruce Lee collection." With that said, you can now pre-order the set with a smile on your face. From a post by Mighty Peking Man on September 7, 2013.
The collection book with extra photos and background information is an added plus, plus. The DVD's are very hard to remove from the pockets, and one would have to be VERY careful not to scratch/damage the DVD, or rip the pocket. So as not to cause any damage to the DVD or the book, I used a very damp paper towel, which helped to get a good grip on the DVD and be able to give a really good but slow gentle pull to remove. The abrasion of a dry paper towel may cause scratches to the DVD, so make sure it's damp.
Would I buy this product again? You darn right I would. Would I recommend this product to others? You darn right I would. Because I am so impressed with this product, I am seriously considering purchasing it for my ex-husband, who is also a huge BL fan. And that's saying a lot!
ADDENUDUM 1: As of 1st August 2013, Shout Factory have pulled this set from distribution, and are in the process of doing... something. No one is quite sure what is being done, but something is being done. (Shout Factory seem extremely reticent to tell anyone what they are doing, more's the pity.) The new release date is supposed to be 17th September 2013. I will update my review as-and-when I have further news! In the meantime, do NOT buy this version of the set, otherwise you will almsot certainly regret it!
ADDENDUM 2: The New, Revised Edition of this set, can now be pre-ordered from Amazon from this link here...
Bruce Lee Legacy Collection (4 BluRay/ 7 DVD) [Blu-ray]
However, we still have NO DETAILS YET as to what has been done to rectify the previous sets problems. So please be aware of this!
ADDENDUM 3: Okay, Shout Factory have now officially confirmed that the re-release of this set, due out on 17th September 2013, will NOT contain any new, remastered Blu-Ray discs. The ONLY thing being corrected is two mislabelled discs - an extras disc and the "I Am Bruce Lee" documentary, which had their labels placed onto each others discs.
As such, I can only say this: CANCEL YOUR ORDERS FOR BOTH (OR EITHER) OF THESE SETS, AND TELL SHOUT WHY YOU HAVE DONE THIS! DO NOT PAY THE BEST PART OF $85 FOR SOMETHING THAT IS NOT WHAT IT CLAIMS TO BE!
ADDENDUM 4: It has been brought to my attention, that as of today, 23rd August 2013, the release date for the "new" set has now been put back indefinitely, until some point in October 2013 - possibly.Read more ›
