John Liu flick is "dragon fighter". There is UK dvd already and if recall right it is widescreen but maybe PQ of forthcoming Asia Line disc is better.

It`s decent movie although not most action packed Liu...

Notice the German Shaw Bros Collection label have released the Chinatown Kid and The Kid With The Golden Arms which I've been after for a while.

What are they audio and subtitle options on all of these, I'm assuming they'll all be the same. Is it just a German dub?

is this the version?

So none of these discs are new transfer… it's just re-release.

Cantonen Iron Kung Fu, 10 Brothers of Shaolin and Struggle Through Death I already have the german widescreen dvds.

Cantonen Iron Kung Fu, 10 Brothers of Shaolin

😲...Wasn`t aware of german release exists(too expensive now at amazon), crash cinema is fullscreen=no use. Had this on vhs, brilliant indie old skool flick. Iron Kung Fu has good reputation but 10 brothers makes this day 1 purchase.

the previous NEW / Megamax Movies are FSK (age restricitions) friendly now and cheaper, that should be the only real difference. none will ever be Region encoded.

Picked up the new Asia Line release of Chen Sing's Black Panther in the hope the bonus movie Tough Guys had english audio- it doesn't and even worse the advertised english audio option for Black Panther is not on there, both movies are german only. Strange as it's the same print as the New Entertainment release, even down to the same amount of chapter breaks but they've removed the english and mandarin audio. Doesn't bode well for any future releases being english friendly. i'm returning to amazon for a refund.
