*This is not a review of the content of the film*

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

This movie looks like Donnie's best since IP MAN 1 & 2. Think of it as a Chinese "History of Violence" but set 100 years ago, and with martial arts. Great acting and action. Donnie's acting ability has gotten very very good. I think he'll end up with a better catalogue of work than either Jackie Chan or Jet Li. Unfortunately this DVD was horrible. The picture is soft, lacks any sort of detail and contrast, and has lots of pixelation. The subtitle track is poorly translated and not timed correctly. I recommend this movie, but not this particular DVD.

Obviously downloaded from the internet and burned on a DVD. Subtitles don't make sense and are not timed correctly. The artwork is blurry. Look for a better version.

Let's get this out of the way quickly: there are 2 DVD versions of this film, an awful bootleg version(title is in white towards the left side with a full photo shot of three characters) and this very nice Media Asia version(yellow cover with green foil lettering and 2 small figures). It's worth the extra money. So now on to the film itself... Donnie Yen plays Jinxi, a quiet, well respected family man in a small village. One day he stops a burglary, killing two dangerous criminals in the process accidentally-- or was it? Police detective Xu Bai(played in quirky fashion as only Takeshi Kaneshiro can) is on the case, and unwilling to believe there isn't more to Jinxi than he lets' on. Director Peter Chan shows no lag coming off the enjoyable Warlords, only this time he's traded action star Jet Li in for Donnie Yen-- and Donnie brings his A game! Astonishing as a performer in his own action direction is a given, but Yen showcases some real acting skill in the more quiet moments of the movie, which hasn't always been the case(but the action is always so good you can look past some stiff deliveries). As a martial arts enthusiast I may be rating this a little high, it's a slower film with plenty of buildup, although the payoff is there(including a fantastic ode to the Chang Cheh classic The One-Armed Swordsman). Great performances, stylish direction, and Donnie giving his best acting performance? HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Imagine my shock as I watched this DVD and found out that I was not going to get the normal run-of-the-mill martial art movie. This story actually has layers and depth. Don't get me wrong, there is still plenty of action, but it interspersed with great acting and a solid, realistic storyline. I even found a few plot twists that were totally unexpected. A definite must see.
