A lot of Shaolin, but not really Jet Li

"The other reviewer got it right. Don't know if he bought this DVD or not, but I sure did. I have it in my hands, and have not the slightest urge to open it. In fact, I am going to return it to Amazon. But I should let everybody know why - so it could save you the hassle.
Off the bat, the cover reads "Join Jet Li and top masters from Sholin along with best Shaolin films in one spectacular 10 feature set." There's your clue to know right away that they are not all Jet Li movies. It has just one "feature" called Jet Li's Shaolin Fists, and from what I could tell, it is a documentary on Jet Li's training days. The rest of the non-Jet Li "features" are: Shaolin Traitor, Shaolin Red Master, Shaolin Ex-Monk, Incredible Shaolin Kung Fu, Kid from Tibet, Nanyuan Boxing, Body Weapon, 5 Tiger Sword, and Cannon Boxing. It definitely does not list "Bodyguard from Beijing" - as wrongly described by Amazon.
This is a huge disappointment for a Jet Li fan. That's me. So I gave it a 1 star. In all fairness, it could be worthwhile for a Shaolin martial arts fan. But not for me!"
Watch out! This is NOT a Jet Li early shaolin films compila

"I'm checking this DVD edition like crazy, based on this incredible "bargain" that this Jet Li compilation seems to be. Mostly, because i know by heart the official filmography of Jet Li before his major breakthrought "Once Upon a time in China". And i mean shaolin films, period films, training videos or whatever. Something's not right, i assure you.
Why: 780 minutes on 2 DVD discs? So much for the quality don't you think? And 10 "movies" for 14 dollars? Of jet Li, the biggest seller in martial arts industry in both Asia and Hollywood? I can't seem to recognize some of these films posted, are these "alternative" names for known films, new films, hidden material, Jet Li's favourite films or training videos? I don't know, but one thing i'm sure: This is not a compilation of Jet Li's early "Shaolin" films. This compilation smells like these old Bruce "Li" or "le" movies, or maybe some Jet Li appereances, bogus material or who knows.
Careful with this edition, at least untill more information comes about this "collection". Some serious research is recommended before you fall into tempation. Because that seems to be the intention here, to catch unprevented fish.
There's absolutely no logic about the incredible amount of posted material, about a big-selling international star, inside 780 minutes in 2 DVD discs, for this price. I smell a rat.
A must have!

"If you like anything that has to do with Shaolin, this is a must have for your collection. The footage of Shaolin, it's Masters & their training is rare to find. You will get alot of instructional video footage from very famous Shaolin Monks as well. The "Kung Fu movies" that are included are o.k. but the highlight video is without a doubt the Shaolin Fists. You will see some footage of Jet Li performing when he was very young as well. Well worth the price. circleoflifekungfu.com"
