You all know about the problem with the non-removable icon, right? It's not a bid deal, really, but an icon appears at the top of the screen (like the Matrix's 'White Rabbit'), but the only way to remove it, is to turn off the English subs. The icon isn't too obtrusive, but I thought it was worth mentioning...

Got my copy today, had to chase the postman for the package after he left me one of those dreaded 'collect from dept' forms.

Yeah, there's been quite a bit about this on the Asian DVD Guide Forums. Presumably the disk was rushed out before this problem was checked.
As I said before, it really isn't a big problem - the icon's quite small, and shouldn't effect the film.

You are too busy laughing in the football sequences to notice most of the time! They are just so over the top!

Thanks for the link Shingster.

Ended up getting Shaolin Soccer, Brother and Battle Royale for just over £25. Gotta be happy with that :-)

if you like hk films, you'll definitely be happy with those, especially at that price. i've got them all myself (from dddhouse as well) and thoroughly enjoyed them.

The Blade web site is now reporting that Shaolin Soccer is due for an April 5th theatrical release in the US. Should be interesting to see how it goes down. My initial inkling would be 'lead balloon', but you never know...

anybody had problems with a rough layer change? on my 709 i get 2 fast skips (not like a normal layer change where its more of a single pause) during the bread-making sequence.

also, what is the difference between the normal version and the "special footage" version also on the disk?

Hi niz,
I have a 709 too, and the layer change is noticeable, but passes with only a slight pause, and without problems. There's a long thread about his in the Asian DVD Forums. I know of a few other people with the same player, who don't have a problem with the layer change, so I suspect there's a faulty batch out there. I'd ask for a replacement.
I don't think there is any difference between the normal and special versions of the film. I assume the idea was you could watch the normal version, and the icon wouldn't appear, but due to a screw up, both versions have the icon, and the only way to remove it is to switch off the subtitles.

The special version is hidden away in the 'white rabbit' feature.
2 extended scenes involving the female lead was originally cut out from the initial HK cinema run.

Due to its success in HK the 2 scenes were re-edited into the movie for another special edition cinema run i.e. lets milk it as much as possible ...

Why the 2 scenes were not edited back into the DVD instead of hidden behind the ' white football feature' I don't know.

1st extended scene appears when the white football appears after the bread making scene.

2nd extended scene appears when the boys celebrate getting into the finals at the cafe were the femal lead works.

are these 2 scenes the only things in the "white rabbits" that are not in the "Special Effects Footage" section?

yes, although there are actually 3 extended scenes, the third being the outtakes with the added bonus of the inclusion of English subs for the goofs IF you watch them as part of the directors cut....

my full review elaborates on the extra scenes and where they are placed within the film (According to my DVDRom anyway!).
