--------------------------
Shanghai, pre-1949, and the city is run by the awful axe-gang. The slums of Shanghai offer no value to the gang, and are generally rather nice places to live – if you don’t mind living in the slums that is. A pair of dim–witted con men unwittingly brings the axe-gang straight into Pig-Stye-Alley. Soon the residents of Pig-Stye-alley discover that there are kung-fu masters living within their humble slum.

There really is so much more to say about this movie, but to do so would wreck the glorious surprises that await the adventurous viewer. Incredible martial arts fused with comedic slapstick :paddle: the result is a fun energetic and very enjoyable movie. Funny and awe-inspiring at the same time, Stephen Chow has done a superb job staring, directing, writing and producing this film.

This is the newest entry in my reference catalogue based on the sound alone. There is ample use of low frequency effects and some delightful surround work. Not to mention great dynamic range. The color is decent and there is a nice mix of light and dark scenes.

The disc includes both Cantonese (with english subs) and English (dubbed) in 5.1.

EXTRAS
Deleted Scenes, outtakes and Bloopers. As well there is the usual audio commentary, photo gallery and previews. And there is one behind the scenes featurette and an interview with writer, director, actor, and kung-fu master Stephen Chow.

I borrowed this movie and Shaolin Soccer (sp) from a friend a year or so ago. My kids loved these movies. In fact my son just recently mentioned the Soccer movie wanting to watch it again.

I thought this was a pretty fun movie, although I didn't realize it would be such a good demo disc since I saw it at a friend's place who didn't have a full setup, just the TV speakers. I might either borrow or rent it to check out on my setup and if it's as good as you say, pick it up for another good demo disc.
