Ill admit the movies are a bit dated. But their old movies what do you expect. The quality is due to their age nothing more. They are all english dubed and dont have subtitles which is a lot easier than reading subtitles.
Bottom line: theyre all great movies which would be a pain to try and track down individually. I recommend purchasing the bundle it will save you a lot of heartache and monney then to try and buy for example "samurai reincarnation" alone.
They have a nostalgic feel to them. And they are a great collection.
THE CHINESE CONNECTION-- Two words: Bruce Lee. Young man seeks revenge on a Japanese gang for the death of his teacher.
DUEL OF THE IRON FIST-- Gang member goes into hiding after a restaurant brawl leaves his father dead. When he returns a year later his own gang has allied with the one that committed the murder and now both mobs are after him. Shadowy film with lots of one-on-one action.
FISTS OF BRUCE LEE-- Actually, this is a "lowlight." Bruce Lee wannabe Bruce Li (ahem) may have Lee's fists, but that's about all. He stars and directs (ineptly).
KUNG FU: THE PUNCH OF DEATH-- For one reason or another, two martial arts schools engage in deadly battle. General theme is vengeance avenged. Lots of action, naturally.
SAMURAI REINCARNATION-- The beheaded leader of a failed 17th Century Christian revolt resurrects as a demon and leads a group of reincarnated ninjas in a fight for vengeance.
