Also featuring almost  15 minutes of deleted conversations in the Members Only Area , available via a FREE, simple registration on the forum. KEN’S EDIT:Excuse my misidentification of who does the stunt in No Regret, No Return. It’s apparently Sam Wong (who fought Jackie at the beginning of Police Story III).
