This review is for the box set of dvd's, NOT the movies. I bought these for my boyfriend, a movie zealot. At first he was overjoyed, but then a fellow movie collector alerted him to the digitally remastered region zero trilogy available FOR THE SAME PRICE!. He said to look around the internet & you will find it easily from reputable dealers. His words, "The video transfer on this edition is very poor, the subtitles are craptastic. Watchable, but just".
"As for the movies themselves, classic John Woo, outstanding action flicks!!! Hard boiled is my ultimate favorite, but it is closely followed by these two. (Never seen #3). So, while i do heartily recommend these movies, i do not recommend this particular transfer."
