Hail the Judge (1994)

Summary: Great film, needs a better DVD!
HAIL THE JUDGE - Dir Wong Jing, Starring Stephen Chiau, Elvis Tsui, Cheung Man & Christy Cheung. A loose sequel to JUSTICE, MY FOOT! from Wong Jing, and a much better film. Great production values, a really good story and some truly hilarious bits (Chiau's training in quarrel-fu is fantastic). A really good film, let down by a dire Mei Ah disc. The embedded subtitles are hard to follow at the best of times, but there's a whole 5-10 minute section near the end of the disc where they just disappear entirely. Quite an important section for the plot too, and you're left guessing what's being said. It looks like they spliced the disc together from two different sources or something, as the sound is rather muffled in that section too.
Reviewer Score: 8
