3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent movie, appalling DVD, 9 Jan. 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: A Better Tomorrow [DVD] (DVD)
Many before me have sung the praises of this movie and I completely agree with every word. No movie fans collection is complete without this classic of th HK action genre.
What I want to talk about is the appaling transfer on this DVD. The shortcomings of the HK movie industry when it comes to preserving film stock is well known but I was dissappointed to find that little or no restoration attempt had been made by the producers of this DVD.
The major problem is that the image is a non anamorphic transfer with burnt in subtitles that are positioned so that they get partially cut off if you're viewing with a widescreen TV.
If you have a multi-region player, I'd advise getting the Anchor Bay release from America. It's far superior.

But according to reviews on Amazon USA, the soundtrack on the Anchor Bay edition has been altered and features music from Forrest Gump and Speed! You can't win!

I think the anchor bay edition only has changed music on english and mandarin tracks but retains original music on cantonese track.
