    This will surely be old news for some, but since I didn’t see a topic about it, I’m posting this info for those who might have missed it.


    Australian label Umbrella Entertainment released at the end of last year a region-free Blu-Ray of The Man From Hong Kong.

    A quick note: the original pressing of this disc apparently had an issue with "Stunt Rock", which would play in a stretched aspect ratio (fixable if you messed around with the player settings), something that is mentioned in a couple of the above reviews.

    Apparently, newer pressings have corrected this error.
