Good effort. A little more thought would be better.

It was a great idea to have a DVD with a bunch of fight scenes in it. However, that was the only thing wrong with this DVD. It seems as if the makers just picked out fight scenes from random films. Granted, they chose some great scenes, but I don't think they truly took the time to come up with the best movie fights. DRUNKEN MASTER 2 and FIST OF LEGEND definately belong here. But it was a shame that they only show a few minutes of these two fight scenes. Even BLACK MASK and the awesome THE KILLER suffer from this. It was embarassing to include that so called fight in "The Player's Club." That was a waste of space. Plus all the fight scenes except CROUCHING TIGER were in full frame, so they weren't even presented in their full glory. It would have been nice too if FIST OF LEGEND, DM2, BLACK MASK, THE KILLER, and RUMBLE IN THE BRONX could be presented in their original soundtracks.

The rest of the DVD is great. The audio commentary by James Lew and Tsui Hark (What was he doing here) was interesting to listen to. I also welcomed the documentary on "How to make a fight scene." One of these days, a better compilation DVD will be made.
