"FIST FROM SHAOLIN-
This is a ripoff of Tsui Hark's 'Once Upon a Time in China' series. Wong Fei Hung is played by a man who looks a bit older than Jet Li and he is an excellent screen fighter. Lam Sai Wing, Aunt 13, Kwan and Bucktooth are all played by lesser actors. The story is weak, but the kung fu is good. The wirework is bad at times, but overall the fights are very well choreographed. Recommended to fans of Wong Fei Hung movies, others should probably pass on it.
Picture quality is surpsingly good.
This is a below average movie where Yuen Biao plays Lau Zhai (aka Foon), the same character he played in Once Upon a Time in China #1. There is a very tired story about opium smuggling and Yuen Biao gets caught in the middle of it. Yen Shi-Kwan plays an officer of the law and Yuen Wah plays the villain. I thought the fights were decent, but the Chang Shan (Shaolin Vs Lama) vs. Yuen Biao fight is the only one that really got me excited. Yen Shi-Kwan is one of my favorite performers but unfortunately he only has a few minutes of action.
Picture quality is decent.
This is a very boring but somewhat interesting documentary on Shaolin fighting monks. These guys can do incredible things with their bodies but it gets boring to watch because it is so repetitious.
Picture quality is bad but watchable.
IN SWORD WE TRUST-
Since this is a Videoasia multipack, you are always guaranteed to get at least 1 bad movie. In Sword we Trust isn't even a Wong Fei Hung movie. The story is about some rebels who get into a lot of sword fights with the British. The story is beyond horrible but the action is decent. All the fights look the same so combine that with the horrible story and I am sure there will be people questioning how I sat through this whole thing. Well, I did, and the ultra bad dubbing was a big reason why. "But General, they already beat the poopydoo out of us."
Picture quality is very bad but watchable.
