"First thing i'd like to point out is that the listing that amazon shows for this (as far as the movies go) is incorrect. The listing as amazon puts it is the same as the original release (which is NOT to be confused with the new version, of which the picture is shown) with the exception of "TNT jackson". Instead of "TNT jackson" you get Fist of Fear, Touch of death.
Now since amazon is listing the picture for the re-release of this box set, im going to assume that's the version they are selling. It should be noted that along with "TNT jackson", you get four other movies which are:
Breakout from oppression
Day of the Panther
The Guy from harlem
the movies they replace are the aformentioned "Fist of fear, touch of death" along with
Death of a ninja
Sister Street Fighter
Ten Fingers of death (which to Morgoth, is the Jackie chan movie Master with cracked fingers under an alternate title)
Also the movie with chow yun fat in it is entitled "the Head hunter".
The easiest way to tell the difference is that the original (and it should be noted BETTER) version has a non-descript guy on the cover as opposed to bruce lee.
Now that thats out of the way, I can get on to the other thing i wanted to mention.
I'd like to thank morgoth for pointing out Shadow Ninja. I have had this movie pack since at least the time when it first came out, and never bothered to check out that movie until i read his review of this pack last night. When I got home i popped the movie in and was thoroughly entertained. So thank you.
Now on to the actual reivew of the pack itself....
due to the fact that i have seen little if any of the movies featured all the way through, i shall end this review by giving a list of the more noteworthy movies to look out for on this pack.
The aformentioned Shadow Ninja (which should definitly be the first movie to watch as soon as you get this.)
Kung Fu arts
Chase Step by Step
Deadly Duo AKA Two Great Cavaliers (which is not to be confused with the Ti Lung epic of the same name)
The Master: Max and out of time step (which are actually episodes of a tv series)
The heroes of Shaolin 1 and 2
The impossible kid (a martial arts movie featuring A MIDGET! has to be seen to be believed!)
The street fighter, Return of the street fighter (a duo of great movies featuring samurai master sonny chiba)
Ten fingers of death AKA Master with cracked fingers (possibly jackie chan's first starring role and a great movie)
Snake Fist Dynamo (mentioning it only to say look for the brooklyn zu version called dragon snake fist thats uncut)
if i've missed any it would be because i haven't actually seen them and therefore do not know they are good."
