4.0 out of 5 stars Fox Presents Fortune Star, Uncut February 27, 2006
Format:DVD
This is in response to the Feb. 5th review titled "ORIGINAL IS BETTER~!"

While I agree with the message, it was put the wrong place. While in most cases the R1 releases of Hong Kong films are heavily cut and dubbed, these releases by Fox, are actually done by the fantastic HK company Fortune Star, and only released under Fox. They contain the UNCUT film in the original Cantonese language (DTS too!), as well as the English dub. As usual the picture quality is more than fantastic. The only downpoints are the usual Fortune Star downpoints: Hardly-to-no extras, and slightly edited sound fx,(but in this case no original mono sound). Also the subtitles are actually dubtitles, but are not terrible. In all, this is still one of the better versions of this film on DVD, especially for under $10.

PS. As for the argument that "no other countries have their own cuts, like France," maybe you should look into Luc Besson's distribution of Asian (especially Thai) films.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another side of two Hong Kong legends January 26, 2003
Format:DVD
Jackie Chan and Sammo Hung completely re-invented the Hong Kong action movie in the 1970's and 1980's, and Jackie especially was the undisputed king of the HK box office. Heart Of The Dragon was a brave step for them, a movie that largely eschews action and focuses on drama. I guess they wanted to prove that there was more to them than best-in-the-world action direction, and here they prove it beyond doubt. The dramatic performances of both are excellent, and Sammo's direction is wonderful. It's a really moving story, very well told.
Obviously they knew that the fans out there expected action though, so the movie has a few small fights and then a largely unnecessary but brilliantly filmed action finale that lasts a good 20 minutes. The movie would probably have been just as good without it, but one cannot complain about a 20 minute action scene when such masters of the art were behind it. Even if the action is all you care about, the quality of the finale here is so good you will not want to miss this movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hong Kong Rain Man November 16, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
First, this is not your typical Jackie Chan movie. Although the action's there, it's sandwiched between the real focus of this movie--a touching tale of a man torn between responsibility towards his handicapped brother (portrayed memorably by Samo Hung), and the chance to realize his dream of becoming a sailor. If you're looking for action, you may want to look elsewhere . . . if you want to be suprised by Jackie's acting range, or if you're a completist, don't miss this one. It's certainly a quality film. And if you're into sappy foriegn films, you may be suprised just how good this one is. Samo and Jackie are brilliant together.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too much missing from a great HK film January 9, 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Although a great mix of action and drama, this movie made in the mid-80s, which has recently seen the light of day in the states, is missing too much. This movie is missing about 2 fight scenes that add nearly 10 minutes. Two fight scenes mean too much missing. Some of the action in the finale was deleted also. Where would a Jackie Chan, Sammo Hung, and Hong Kong action film be without numerous fight scenes? Some of the music has been changed or taken out that enhanced the mood of the scenes. I am a great fan of Jackie Chan and Hong Kong cinema but I am tired of seeing fantastic action films cut of their action. This movie would have been 5 stars had it not had too much missing.

5.0 out of 5 stars drama-onscreen and off February 7, 2004
By Buzaru
Format:DVD
While this has action-and whenever Sammo directs, expect Jackie to be a juggernaut, the real story is the bond between them. Through the story(and the real life events behind this movie) Jackie and Sammo show themselves as inseperable. Jackie walks hand in hand with Sammo at a time when critics were circling around Sammo like vultures on roadkill. While the story will lead you to be upset with yourself for laughing at a person with disabilities(which you will) you will find redemption in seeing them staying in a relationship no matter what. Jail, jewel thieves and the merchant marines cannot split this duo. Their bond comes through, even if you see the film in Japanese with English subtitles, which was my first experience with it.

This movie was a big surprise! Jackie Chan is a very good actor, as is Samo Hung. The story is about a frustrated cop who must sacrifice his dreams to care for his retarded brother. The action actually takes a back seat to the story, for a change. It's very moving, somewhat reminiscent of "Rainman". Chan's performance has surprising depth to it. It takes a minute to get used to the British voices in the English dubbing--weird to hear Chan & Hung with English accents, although this dubbing job was far less jarring than most of the American dub jobs I've heard. Highly recommend!!

This film rules the school! Sammo Hung is a phenomenal actor and filmmaker! I wish people would look more to films such as this and not always to Rush Hour and Shanghai Noon.
