I'm very pleased about these (and Rolling Thunder). Very pleased about the price as well. The Island sells for $20.00, but only a little over $13.00 for two of Chan's best?

I wonder if these will include the extras from the Dragon Dynasty releases?

Blu-ray.com has a review up for Shout's Crime Story/The Protector double feature and it's disheartening. Looks like they're sourced from standard definition masters. Maybe this is old news to some, but I was really looking forward to some nice HD picture quality for these. I'm assuming The Police story films will be the same. Still, I imagine this will be the best the films will look for some time to come.

I had the HK Police Story BD and it was a mess.If Shout! use the same transfer it'll be a great shame.

Yeah, I have the HK BDīs of Police Story, and even though they are upscales, in comparision to the latest HK DVDīs, the BD:s donīt suffer from DNR and bad compression. Also the colors are better on the BDīs, and the upscale is sharper and better looking than what even my Oppo player can do. So itīs still an slight upgrade, if you (like me) hate DNR and compression artifacting.

But if you are satisfied with the latest DVDīs and arenīt bothered with DNR and artifacts, then itīs not worth it.
