Question Police Story I/II ?

Still frustrating that this has not been released in the UK on Blu-Ray.

Does anyone know if there's a version on Blu-Ray with English subs — that will play on a Region B player?

Last I checked the only good version of Police Story is the Japanese Blu-ray which features a proper HD transfer but it has burned-in Japanese subtitles (they're part of the print used) and no English subs.

All other versions are reportedly very **** upscales with bad remixed audio.

Japanese Blus are also the only decent source for other classics like Hard Boiled and Drunken Master.

Yes, I think so. Check out a company called edit

I've bought a few titles from him and they've all been brilliant, with the exception of a small glitch on Hard Boiled.

You'll get multiple cuts, audio tracks and subtitles, a second disc of extras usually, and great picture.

That looks brilliant, how many titles has he released? There seems to be a physical blu-ray as well as a digital download.

At last count, there were about 7 or 8.

Off the top of my head, Wheels on Meals, Police Story, Drunken Master 2, Hard Boiled, Project A, Police Story 3: Supercop.

I bought Hard Boiled (1-disc), Supercop (1-disc) and Project A (2-disc). All took around a week to arrive, and cost me around a tenner a pop.

Given these are illegal bootlegs I am surprised people are discussing here.

On the blu-ray.com forums the moderators cracked down and now illegal to mention this company with some members getting banned for posting in praise of them.
