I love this film and it seems like making it was an adventure in itself.

Anyway, the entire film is now on youtube so it good more people will get to see it.

I was expecting a lot worse to say the least.
In fact, give me a movie shot in Asia and put Dolph in it, and it will at least get "good" from me. Here, the locations and landscapes are great (it the China and Mongolia we don't see everyday, not the "up to date" and technological one, it's the dusty and post industrial one, and that's great). The character of Ronson is great and likeable, it's a shame they didn't get to do Tumbling Dice. The script is well done for this kind of product, and here, the lack of budget and chinese logistics (is it the right word) are the things to blame. The movie in itself is okay, but having one more car and 4 more in the expedition, and a dozen more thugs on the vilain side, plus explosions and some more fights, would have made the movie more efficient. A bigger set for the Tangka Temple, and more chases in the beautiful landscape, and you would have a great adventure picture, and probably one of the best dolph's effort.
Given all the problems of the movie, there's still a solid movie, with some good shots.
As I began with, I was expecting a lot worse.

What's been shot is only a trimmed version of the script, 20 or 30% remained of the well crafted and dialogued screenplay. There you had a well written adventure flick with some scope... ;)

For those who like or hate the film, the DVD is still worth purchasing just to see that awesome featurette.

I apologize if this has been answered somewhere before, but how's the quality of the French Blu-Ray? I have a chance to get it shipped to the US for under $20 US, but would like to know if it's worth it.

Yes, the French Blu-ray is good! But I just checked again and it has forced subtitles on the English audio track though (and it's region B so in the US you need to have either an all region or a pirated one).
The Swedish edition is good as well just in case, and with no forced subs.

These two are the only ones out there as far as I know.

Because the movie was shot on Super 16mm film, just expect a grainy image but it's natural 16mm film grain.

Thanks Jox.

Ever since I went region free, it's been a lot of fun to build my collection.

Do you have a link to the swedish version? I've not been able to find one.

Cool! I couldn't live without a region-free player since the arrival of DVDs...

I'll look for a link to the Swedish Blu-ray. ;)

Thanks for taking the time to hunt down a link for me, but unfortunately it does not appear they ship to the USA.

On the other hand, I did find a Finnish copy on a site that does ship to the USA.. doing a little more research before I pull the trigger.
