Hong Kong 1941 (Dang doi lai Ming): Special Collector's Edition=

    The Region 4 is a copy of the UK Region 2 release from the same label, albeit with a different selection of trailers for other releases.

    While the Hong Kong Region 3 release is in widescreen and features surround mixes of the original soundtrack, it is not 16x9 enhanced.

    There have been two releases in Region 1. The first came from Tai Seng and again is not 16x9 enhanced. It has Cantonese and Mandarin tracks in Dolby Digital 5.1 and biographies, filmographies and a trailer as extras.

    A second Region 1 release comes from Fox. It is 16x9 enhanced and has Cantonese and Mandarin tracks in Dolby Digital 5.1. There are conflicting reports about the quality of the audio. As extras it has a shorter interview with Cecilia Yip-Tong than on the Region 4, plus an interview with Paul Chun. There is a photo gallery, production notes and a biography of Chow Yun-Fat.

    The Hong Kong Legends disc seems to be the superior release based on the available information.
