"I write this because I don't agree at all with the previous reviewer. I don't know whether his disc was defective (or his player), but the enconding in this disc is fine. They used AVC, and there is nothing choppy about the action scenes.
Of course the movie doesn't look as sharp as new movies, and some scenes fare worse than others, but overall this definitely looks HD, and I believe this is as good as you can expect these movies to look, considering their age, etc., unless they go some restoration.
Don't expect inky blacks, great shadow detail, or a pristine print. But you didn't get any of that on dvd either, and you do get added resolution and cleaner encoding with the Blu-ray.
There's nothing tragic about the menus, they're just standard fare, like dvd."

"This Blu-ray's great! Much better picture quality than DVD. It looks fantastic! And, no the action scenes are NOT choppy--another reviewer here obviously has equipment issues, NOT disc issues. BCI's done a great job, and I'm hoping for more Blu-ray starring Sue Shihomi.
These movies are wildly entertaining, and just crazy over the top! I was laughing throughout these movies, not because they're funny, but because they're just so entertaining. No wonder Quentin Tarantino referenced this movie in True Romance.

"This Is A Pretty Good Bluray Product. Great Fighting Sequences. Nice Movie To Eat Popcorn With And Have A Good Time With Friends. Loved When The Fat Guys Guts Get Pulled Out. Or The Crazy Guy Whos Head Gets Twisted. Nice Effects.(just wait for the bats at the end of the movie.) Fair Movie Just Dont Expect Crystal Clear Picture Quality."
