It's a smeary mess with sloppy grain management that not only adds conventional DNR but also all sorts of weird artifacting—there are some examples in this thread, though unfortunately not all the image links still work. It looks worse than a bootleg copy of the mainland Chinese version that appeared shortly after the original theatrical release, never mind the far superior Korean and U.S. Blu-rays (which unfortunately are different cuts of the movie, so they can't replace the HK BD).

Thing is that these articles on Filmmaker came out of Wong's appearance at the Hawaii International Film Festival way back in November. I don't know why they're only appearing now, but it was reported in March that Amazon had dropped Tong Wars.
