"This is NOT the "Master Killer" I was looking for as I have been a fan of both "The Master Killer" and "The Return of the Master Killer". The "Master Killer" series I remember had Gordon Liu fighting Japanese ninja warriors in a quest to prove the superior style of martial arts. I would love to return and exchange this series for the correct ones.
3 average independent Gordon Liu movies.

"WARRIOR FROM SHAOLIN-this movie has a great cast incuding Lily Li but there is just not much fighting. The story is unbearable and finally we get some really good action in the final fight. 2/5
FIST AND GUTS-Another bad movie from Lau Kar Wing who also directed 'Warrior From Shaolin'. He directed a few very good independent movies but these are not 2 of them. Lo Lieh is good but only fights at the end. There is only 3 major fights in the movie and the rest is just pure time filler. 2.5/5
SHAOLIN DRUNKEN MONK- I found this movie the most enjoyable. It moves along at a good pace and has plenty of decent fights. It seems like it is directed by Godfrey Ho but is a little better done. Cheesy enough to please any bad movie fan and it has enough kung fu for any hardcore fan to make it through at least once. 2.5/5
All of the movies are full screened but have watchable picture quality. Fist and Guts looks the best by far. They all have a commentary from Ric Myers and they are almost all the same commentary. If you buy this 3-pack you will get a very good idea of how he repeats everything over and over again. He gives a new idea here and there and it is somewhat enjoyable."
