Honestly, I'm of the opinion that most UHD upgrades are not worth it. It's not like a jump in picture quality that DVD to BR was. If you played them side by side you might see a difference but it won't be a splash out £30 quid difference. I'd ring-fence UHD upgrades to titles you truly can't do without!

In my honest opinion there's only so many K's and D's and U's and H's you can stick on it before my eyesight isn't going to tell the difference.

Yeah IMO it's not worth paying the extra for modern films,I reckon the Blu Ray looks just as good.

I've reserved 4k UHD for older films.


All these kung fu films across every label...it's a pandemic.

****ing kung-fu-flu!

Only Armour of God and Dragons Forever got 4K transfers, the others are in 2K. And since these 2K transfers were done recently, I doubt that they already would go back and make 4K transfers for them all.
Usually it takes a LONG time, between remasters of HK movies.

I'm gonna upgrade Dragons Forever, since it's one of my top 10 HK movies.
But I'm skipping Armour of God.

I hope they make UHD/BD combo packs of all future 4K remasters, so we don't have to double dip again.

Thatís a shame, even though I complained earlier, I would buy a 4k UHD of Miracles.

ARMOUR OF GOD IS IN 2K NOT 4K AND MIRACLES IS IN 4K not 2k

Actually I was correct about Armour of God being a 4K scan.

"Original Hong Kong Theatrical Cut [98 mins approx] [New Re-master from 4K Scan]"
