This movie was released in 2005 on DVD by Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment, the release contains the original version of the movie, with the original Cantonese audio and the English dubbed audio with David A. Thomas, Wendee Lee, and Rik Thomas dubbing the movie, and including English subtitles, which is another type of subtitles, is called "dubtitles", which means matching the English dubbed language, but not getting an English subtitle matching the original Cantonese audio.

The subtitled Hong Kong Legends UK release has one subtitle deliberately mistranslated to remove a joke about AIDS, which is not acceptable at the 12 category (though the actual line in Cantonese remains unaltered). See more »
An attempt to create a live Anime comes up short due to careless handling but the movie delivers on a couple of action sequences which will be one of the best of all time in the comedy/martial arts genre particularly Chan's fight scenes and the hilarious live re-creation of the Street Fighter video game!Chan is very game in his perfomance but the director just tries too hard to get comical/cartoonish behaviour.The director could have done much better with much less overkill and better soundtrack.The musical number also was torture and that one I recommend you fast forward.This movie is only for die hard Chan fans and big martial arts/comedy fans who know both Anime and Hong Kong style humor......
