Main Version is the Export Version without the Crash SD Scenes.

Right, that's what I figured.

But you can choose between the version with or without the Crash scenes is what I'm asking.

Yes, you can choose between the two. Each version (export cut, German cut, and the reconstruction with the Crash inserts) has its own option in the menu.

I need to get this German bluray now! It's amazing how this classic just popped out of nowhere. My hats to these German companies for bringing out some rare and classic HK/Taiwan kungfu films.

Anyway, the first time I saw it was the Crash VHS (!!!) back in the day. Terrible video quality but at least in full 2.35:1 widescreen.

Finally got this blu ray yesterday and i watched the main version.

Good film... some scenes are a bit boring but it's still worth having in your collection. Thankfully the comedy bits aren't that bad and the film is mostly serious. The picture quality is really amazing.

There is a scene at the begining where Sammo is punching and kicking some pigs... hehe this would never be accepted these days ;)

Yeah, I think a lot of things in kungfu films couldn't be accepted these days. LOL

But they are cinematic products that reflects the social norms accepted in their times.

Again, the fights are great, the comedy is pretty bad but it was very likely a movie that was made on a tight budget in the shortest amount of days possible. This is no "Magnificent Butcher" production quality but we're to watch a fat guy kicking ass like Bruce Lee.  

Anyway, I find interesting is that the film was mainly an independent production so very likely master copies of this film (e.g. original camera negatives) in HK are gone but fortunately, it was released in Germany using an export 35mm print.

I'm still waiting for someone to release "Born Invincible" on bluray someday. :(

Yes, the animal cruelty in Chinese films is quite disturbing. Thankfully Jackie Chan has had a change of heart, but I get the feeling Sammo could care less. Someday I will do a rant on why Sammo is probably an asshole, in real life, judging from his work. I enjoy his films, but this is a tough one to watch more than once. I could have seen it back in the day, but I had no interest. I honestly didn't think much of him back in the 1970's as my idea of a martial artist was based on competition, and he was, well, fat. Like his movies, like I said, and I got this one for the collection, but I am just a little love hate with him.

It's region free. Switched my multi-region player to Region A (I'm in Australia, which uses Region B) and it worked.

The listing ShawAngela posting says Region-Free in the description. I'm surprised it's still around,thought it was sold out everywhere.
