"Be aware that these five films were made in Jackie's early career, when he had low budgets and little creative control.This DVD set is recommended only for the die-hard Jackie Chan fan, to complete one's collection. He is in his top athletic ability in his youth, though. So the action scenes are interesting to watch.Here are my comments, with IMDB ratings:Half A Loaf Of Kung Fu (5.8/10) painfully bad silly comedy.
To Kill With Intrigue (4.8/10) formulaic revenge plot.
The Killer Meteors (4.4/10) Jackie is the villain!
New Fist Of Fury (5.5/10) a remake of Bruce Lee's "Fist of Fury" / "The Chinese Connection."
Spiritual Kung Fu (5.7/10) actually kind of humorous."

"Hold on to your seats because the master of martial arts from my generation just punched another hole in one! I wouldn't recommend getting this if you're hoping for a movie with a great love story or dynamic acting. This is simply Jackie Chan doing what he does best: creative, witty, and very unique action. As always, Jackie does his own stunts in everything (as hard as that is to believe) and packs a serious punch! Two thumbs up."
