I saw the Prodigal Boxer.1972 as a child back in the 70s. I loved it and remember it growing up. But in my 40's, I couldn't remember the title. I bought many of the Karate/Kung Fu movies from the dollar store with no luck. All I could remember was it had two bad guy brothers, one had fighting skills with his hand and the other with his feet. The other day, I was at Big Lots and found this Double Feature. The story on the back sounded like the treasure I watched as a child. I watched it last night and BAM! I found it!! :) I was so happy!! It's a pretty good story for this type of movie. Also, Swap here says it is a 2 Disc set. Mine looks exactly the same as this one shown, but has both movies on 1 Disc. Enjoy!
As for the Militant Eagle, I'll come back later with a review. :)

"Prodigal Boxer-this is a decent Meng Fei movie where he is playing Fong Sai Yuk. He really shows he is a great actor but sadly the kung fu is only average at best in this.
Militant Eagle-this movie is the better of the 2 but it really doesn't make any sense. It has one hell of a final battle sequence but you will stuggle watching it until the end finally comes.
The thing I don't get is why these 2 movies are being released again. I know at least a few companies that have put these movies out before. I just don't get the point of this. And the fact that Militant Eagle has NEVER had an uncut release, I just don't get the point of releasing these movies, again. Hopefully a company like Rarescope will come out with the original version of Militant Eagle some day. It would be nice because they could show companies like Warner Brothers what a kung fu movie release should be like, ya freakin idiots."
