The three stars are not a commentary on the film (which is excellent) but rather the Blu-ray disc itself. For your audio options you have the English dub or... the English dub with the occasional Cantonese track coming in and out. For whatever reason, you can't listen to this film in its original language in its entirety. Unacceptable. The captions are also dubtitles, so you can't even have the benefit of experiencing the original language in *any* context. I can't speak to how loyal the English dub is to the original script, but the voice work is entertaining enough that I can enjoy the film without much in the way of cringing.
For some reason, the release sold here is Region 2. I was concerned that it wouldn't play, but the movie works fine on a Region 1 Blu-Ray player. The special features, however, do *not*. Any attempt to access them just brings you to a black screen.
Overall, this Blu-ray release is massively disappointing. Buy this only if you're content to watch the movie dubbed and without special features.
