"......... SHUT UP! For one thing, these are NOT SHAW BROTHERS
FILMS! Get it through you're thick heads! These are movies with
ex-Shaw Brother actors, Jimmy Wang Yu, Lily Li, Lo Leih etc....!
And as you look in the back of the DVD case, you'll notice the
words "in Shaw tradition"! Meaning the movies fight scenes are
like Shaw Brother films, DOESN'T MEAN THEY ARE SHAW BROTHER
FILMS! Any of this seeping into your brains! I thought not! Well
anyways, this is a collection of movies which were poorly
transfered from video! And as stated by other reviewers, the
picture for each of these films are horrible, but in there own
special little way! But since I've been into kung fu films for a
long time now, I can get used to the crappy picture, the lame-
a$$ english dubbing and generic DVD designs! So pretty much I'm
saying I still enjoyed these films! Well at least The Loot and
Gallant Boxer! 800 Heros (of course they spelled it wrong) and
Deadly Roulette was crappy! The picture problems for Gallant
Boxer, Deadly Roulette and 800 heros is that... well they were
unwatchable! I mean I see things better if these movie were
pitch black! There are lots of scratches, bleeps, white
stuff ... you know the usual! The Loot's picture was actually
good, BUT when the picture movies it looks jagged! Maybe
something do with speed delay!
SO, is it worth $18!?! Well maybe if you paid me the $18 dollars
and let me have the DVD! Word to the wise, DON'T BUY THIS unless
you are the ultimate, mega-hardcore, super ultra advocate of
kung fu cinema! And 800 Heros is a war movie more or less!"
Why not just ....
