Heavily re-edited and released in different versions throughout the world, RIGHTING WRONGS - released in an English-friendly version under the title Above The Law - is one of the more infamous Hong Kong action films to be released in the 80s. Directed by prolific action director, Corey Yuen, RIGHTING WRONGS explodes with jaw-dropping fight choreography and features strong performances by Yuen Biao, Cynthia Rothrock, Corey Yuen, and Melvin Wong, along with scene-stealing fight cameos by Peter Cunningham and Karen Sheperd. Vinegar Syndrome is extremely proud to present RIGHTING WRONGS on Blu-ray, featuring three different cuts of the movie (including both the "darker" ending as well as the more "audience-friendly" ending) and loaded with a multitude of special features exclusive to this release, including the seldom seen THE BEST OF MARTIAL ARTS feature-length documentary from 1990 which includes several interviews and footage from the stars of RIGHTING WRONGS!
