Unfortunately the BBFC have decided to cut My Lucky Stars by 11 seconds giving the following reason...

One compulsory cut was required to the sight of a car being stolen with the aid of a piece of wire on the grounds that this is an imitable technique that requires removal under the Video Recording Act of 1984.

...to further insult the UK public the BBFC have cut a further 2-seconds though have not reported this fact. Top site Bullets N Babes have uncovered the details of this second cut that involved a joke about rape, full details here.

Though the details on the latter two Jackie Chan titles may change before their eventual release this is pretty much what you can expect from the team at Hong Kong Legends for the rest of the year. Notable exclusions from the schedule include the Way of the Dragon Platinum Edition and the Korean movie Bichunmoo, though to be fair, this was only rumoured for a late 2002 release, but is heavily anticipated by the fans (including me!).
