The Hong Kond DVD includes an Unrated version of the film with a running time of 113mins NTSC. The R-rated version runs aprox 109mins NTSC. The extra footage in the Unrated version is to the Temple massacre sequence - Graphic beheadings, arms cut off, more bullet hits etc. Also a short scene at the end of the Temple massacre showing the last 2 police officers and 2 cult members in a stand off. Which quickly turns into a graphic killing of one of the policemen and cult member. See more »
I am not a devotee of Hong Kong or Asian movies. What initially attracted my attention to Double Vision was the presence of David Morse. Over the years he seems to have had a knack for showing up in interesting, if offbeat, films. This movie is no exception to that pattern. The acting of the leads is good to above average. I don't want to duplicate the comments expressed so well by others. Let me just say that I concur with the general opinion that the film goes offtrack in the third act. Up to that point it relied on the characters of the leads and exposition on Taoism. After that point it veered off into supernatural confusion. However, all in all, worth the viewing.
