What are the best Jackie Chan movies on DVD / Blu Ray?
Jackie Chan dvds is a site which lists every film that Jackie Chan has starred in from 1976 to present day. We do not count his many cameo's or the movies that he produced. It more importantly lists all the Jackie Chan movies on dvd and Blu ray that are available, the different versions released and where to purchase them. Hopefully this is the ultimate Jackie Chan dvds and movie list. I hope you find this site useful and if you wish to contribute or spot any mistakes please let me know. What are the best Jackie Chan dvds?...that depends on what your looking for, uncut, anamorphic widescreen, English dubbed? The good dvds in my opinion tend to come from HK Legends in the UK (a lot of titles now OOP but were re-released by Cine Asia), Dragon Dynasty in the USA and Fortune Star releases in Hong Kong. If you speak Chinese then the French have an amazing list of quality releases but no English subtitles and the Japanese have some great releases too, especially for longer versions of films like Who Am I? and Mr Nice Guy.
Jackie Chan Movies in HD
Note : Blu ray discs tend to be more problematic for a lot of titles. According to a lot of reliable sources over the net, most of the Fortune Star Hong Kong Jackie Chan movies on Blu ray releases are upscales, not true HD. The exceptions to the rule are City Hunter, Armour Of God 2 Operation Condor, the UK release of Rumble In The Bronx and the Japanese release of Heart Of The Dragon. Also the Japanese special edition Blu ray box set of Police Story has the Japanese cut of the film in true HD. Newer titles not released by Fortune Star are true HD such as New Police Story and his American made movies (Rush Hour, Shanghai Noon etc). Also note a lot of the USA cut and dubbed releases are also true HD. If you have any comments or want to add to the above list just let me know.
