SDU: Sex Duties Unit (2013) (Blu-ray) (Hong Kong Version) Blu-ray Region A
Chapman To (Actor)
| Shawn Yue (Actor)
| Chow Hoi Kwong (Actor)
| Derek Tsang (Actor)
Hong Kong director Gary Mak mixes the city's favorite genres: police, sex and comedy all into one brew in his latest work SDU: Sex Duties Unit. Produced by Pang Ho Cheung, the films reminds of Pang's 2003 hit Men Suddenly In Black which takes on four men's extramarital affairs in Hong Kong; this time, the concept is similar but the setting has been changed to the Vegas of Asia, Macau. After failing an elite selection, the four-member "Special" Duties Unit played by Chapman To, Shawn Yue, Chow Hoi Kwong and Derek Tsang switch their focus from fighting crimes to a battle of pleasures.
The Special Duties Unit is the elite paramilitary tactical unit of the Hong Kong Police Force with the goal to counter terrorism and the most notorious and dangerous of criminals. After a disappointing international selection process, four members of the B team, Keung (Chapman To), Fu (Shawn Yue), Ho (Chow Hoi Kwong) and Mic (Derek Tsang), organize a private mission codenamed "Sex War." Hiding their true identities, the team illegally sneaks into Macau to visit the bordellos. Their seamless plan, however, is met with an unexpected anti-vice operation. To avoid charges, the four of them work together to break out of prison, turning their ambitious sex mission into a hilarious emergency escape plan…

Unbeatable (2013) (Blu-ray) (Hong Kong Version) Blu-ray Region A
Nick Cheung (Actor)
| Eddie Peng (Actor)
| Andy On (Actor)
| Jack Kao (Actor)
Smashing the Hong Kong box office, Dante Lam's (The Viral Factor, The Stool Pigeon) MMA action blockbuster Unbeatable is praised for its seamless action choreography and intricate depiction of human emotions. Instead of going overboard and filling the movie with pure androgen, Lam strikes a good balance of masculinity, family and humanity for what seems to be a straight off macho subject. Nick Cheung and Eddie Peng's brilliant portrayals of MMA fighters, not to mention their hard-trained physique, add to the draw of the film. At the Shanghai Film Festival's Golden Goblet Awards, Nick Cheung won Best Actor while ten-year-old Malaysian child star Crystal Lee took home Best Actress for their outstanding performances.
Ching Fai (Nick Cheung) was once a champion boxer, but he sold out his career for money. To run away from reality, Fai spends his life gambling and finally has to flee to Macau to escape loan sharks. In Macau, Fai meets his apprentice Qi (Eddie Peng) who vows to rebuild life with his father after their family business goes under. When Qi gets injured in competition, Fai, at the age of 48, once again steps onto the MMA stage to fight on behalf of his student.
This version comes with trailers, interviews and making-of.
The Grandmaster (2013) (Blu-ray) Blu-ray Region All
Tony Leung Chiu Wai (Actor)
| Wong Kar Wai (Producer, Director)
| Zhang Ziyi (Actor)
| Chang Chen (Actor)
"Martial arts. Two words: Horizontal and vertical. There's no right and wrong; the last man standing wins."
Over a decade in the making, Wong Kar Wai's The Grandmaster is finally here! Initially planned as a biography of Wing Chun Grandmaster Ip Man (Best known as Bruce Lee's master), The Grandmaster has since become an epic drama about three martial artists who walk three very different paths in their road to becoming grandmasters. While the filmmaker touches on familiar themes like unrequited feelings and longing between lonely people, he also tries his hand at new themes by exploring the philosophies behind martial arts and the slow decay of that world's long-standing traditions. To accurately depict the various martial arts schools occupying that world, Wong spent several years visiting martial art masters across China to study the ideological and physical differences between each school. He even recruited martial arts scholar/filmmaker Xu Haofeng (The Sword Identity) to serve as a co-writer of the script.
In addition to WKW regular Tony Leung Chiu Wai starring as Ip Man, The Grandmaster also co-stars Zhang Ziyi in a scene-stealing performance as a strong-willed Bagua Quan master, Chang Chen as a mysterious Baji master who wishes to escape his espionage life, Zhao Benshen as a retired grandmaster, Song Hye Kyo as Ip's wife Zhang Yongcheng and Xiao Shenyang as a Hong Kong hoodlum. The three main stars all underwent extensive training in their respective martial arts schools in order to execute the complex action choreography by Yuen Woo Ping (The Matrix, Tai Chi Master). Always the perfectionist, Wong kept the production of the film going for over three years. After the long, delay-filled wait, Wong finally delivered a gorgeous epic that is also one of the most thoughtful explorations of the martial arts world ever put on film. The opening film of the 2013 Berlin Film Festival, the highly anticipated film is also the biggest commercial success of Wong Kar Wai's distinguished career.
Hailing from a rich family, Ip Man (Tony Leung Chiu Wai) devoted his life to practicing Wing Chun in the city of Foshan. When Gong Baosen, Chairman of the Chinese Martial Artists Union, decides to mark his retirement with a sparring match in Foshan, Ip is thrust into the limelight as Baosen's chosen opponent. Despite objections by Baosen's daughter Gong Er (Zhang Ziyi), Baosen goes ahead with the match and breaks his family's unbeaten record with a rare loss. Gong Er manages to save her family honor by winning a rematch against Ip, and the two even strike up an unspoken bond in the process. However, the Sino-Japanese War breaks out, causing Ip to lose his family fortune and Baosen's disciple Ma San (Zhang Jin) to turn to the Japanese for self-preservation. While Ip struggles to care for his family, Gong Er makes a major sacrifice in the name of revenge. Meanwhile, a mysterious man named The Razor (Chang Chen) attempts to leave behind his life as a spy and heads to Hong Kong...
