I thought it would be prudent to post this disclaimer on Amazon as it directly effected my decision to NOT buy this version of this movie.
THIS IS NOT THE ORIGINAL VERSION, but rather one that has been edited and shortened by the American Studio handling the domestic release.
Also, changes have been made to some of the music as well.
Now, I'm sure some people don't care about this sort of thing, and you who don't will get an acceptable movie if you decide to buy this. Personally I am a bit of a purist and get offended when some Suits who had nothing to do with making a movie suddenly start cutting bits out and generally messing it about.
If you've got the scratch to spend, you can get the undiluted Chinese release here: Wu Xia Blu-Ray (Region A) (English Subtitled) Donnie Yen
That is all, and may you get much enjoyment out of this film in whatever form you acquire it.
*Unhelpful side note for the curious*:
I am also annoyed by the rebranding of this film as "Dragon.""Wu Xia" is the term for the sub-genre of story telling that this film is an example of. Hence, renaming it "dragon" is like renaming a Film Noir titled "Noir" to "Black" for a foreign release, which doesn't make any sense and is stupid. :p
