(5 out of 5 stars)
"The blurb says that the Shaolin and Wu Tang Temples were originally friendly but had different viewpoints on the world. The Shaolin follows the ways of Buddhism whilst the Wu Tang believed in Taoism. Eventually the differences also expanded into politics and the two clashed in spectacular battles. Here for the first time is an action packed look into both sides of a rivalry that made history! See the Shaolin clash with the Wu Tang in a battle of ideals and principles. COMMENT: For $17.99, this 10 film collection is a real bargain. However, the film does not follow one from another. Rather than saying that this collection presents a coherent history (or whatever)it is more fitting than the collection is called "eclectic" in the pejorative sense of the word. There is no attempt whatever to "integrate" the various viewpoints, techniques or principles. All the movies fly by the seat of their pants. I gave this collection a 5 star because of its "bargain" nature and that seen singularly, it does represents a sound story."
