Only worth buying for Kung Fu Superman

"KUNG FU SUPERMAN, also known as LITTLE SUPERMAN- this is one of the best old school kung fu movies of all time. Tons of fight scenes with lots of recognizable actors. Bruce Leung, James Nam, Chan Lung, Chan Lau, Lee Ka Ting, John Cheung, Hon Kwok Choi, and Meng Hoi who looks about 13 years old. All of the fights are good, and the final fight is one you will never forget. If you want to save yourself a few dollars, I recommend just getting the 2-pack this comes in- Kung Fu Superman/Muscle of the Dragon. Rating- 5/5
Picture quality is fine, and it is uncut. Best picture quality in the 10-pack. This movie is a MUST see for any kung fu fan.
BRUCE LEE THE STAR OF STARS, better known as EXIT THE DRAGON, ENTER THE TIGER- Chen Zhen has died and his brother played by Bruce Li starts investigating his murder. This movie is complete nonsense but it tries to be serious. The fight scenes are nonstop but none of them are good. Lung Fei, Kam Kong and Chang Yi all have lengthy fights, and I was expecting a lot more from a cast like that. There just isn't much put into the fights. It is sad. This movie is a big disappointment. 2/5
Picture quality is washed out but partly widescreened. It is watchable.
DRAGON LIVES AGAIN- Bruce Leung stars as Bruce Lee. The story is about Bruce Lee going to Hell and fighting his way out. He teams up with the One Armed Swordsman and Popeye the Sailor and they fight Zatoichi, James Bond, Dracula, The Godfather, Emmanuelle, and other people. Yes, I am serious, that is what the movie is about. It is not a good movie, but still a lot of fun. Fans of cheesy kung fu movies may like it. 1.5/5
Picture quality is bad but watchable. Full screen.
FIST OF FURY 3, aka JEET KUNE THE CLAWS AND THE SUPREME KUNG FU- Bruce Li once again plays Chen Zhen's brother. Fist of Fury 2 was good, but part 3 isn't. Don't waste your time with this. Just fast forward to the last 30 minutes. Some of the action is good, but not enough of it is good. 1.5/5
Picture quality is not too bad but the full screen presentation cuts out a lot of the action. Barely watchable.
REVENGE OF FIST OF FURY- if you are a fan of really bad movies then this is right up your alley. I found it to be truly one of the worst movies I have ever seen. I had never heard of Bruce Pack before and now I know why. 0.5/5
Picture quality is bad and it is full screen, but it is still watchable.
MISSION FOR THE DRAGON, aka RAGE OF THE DRAGON- Dragon Lee and Carter Wong fight it out to the death in this crappy kung fu movie. The kung fu is decent at times, but there is nothing special about it. The movie itself is completely mindless and doesn't make any sense. The only reason to watch this is for the sound effects they use in the final fight. I have never heard anything like it before. It kind of sounds like a Nintendo game. 0.5/5
Picture quality is watchable.
MUSCLE OF THE DRAGON- this movie uses footage from Clones of Bruce Lee. I couldn't get into it I had to turn it off after watching 20 minutes. Completely unwatchable. 0/5
Picture quality is decent at best.
CHING WU AND SHAOLIN, better known as BRUCE AND SHAOLIN KUNG FU- one of the worst kung fu movies of all time. Don't waste your time with this. I tried my hardest to make it all the way through this and I had to shut the movie off with 20 minutes left. I don't think I have ever seen worse fight choreography. No joke. Bolo Yeung and everyone else involved with this movie should be ashamed of themselves. 0/5
Picture quality is very bad, but still watchable.
CHING WU AND SHAOLIN PART 2- after watching part 1, I figured that there was no way part 2 could be any worse. Well, I was wrong. The only reason I watched it for more than 30 minutes was because superkicker Eagle Han Ying has a part in the movie. He has one fight. It is a bad fight, but he gets to show off his amazing kicks. Then he gets shot and dies. So to sum it up briefly, part 2 is somehow worse than part 1. My eyes were bleeding by the end of this movie. 0/5
Picture quality is very bad, but still watchable (same quality is part 1).
ENTER THE GAME OF DEATH- I can usually watch even the worst picture quality, but this is completely unwatchable. The picture shakes like crazy and you can't see anything. Too bad, because I was looking forward to this movie.
So once again, the only reason to get this 10-pack is to see Kung Fu Superman, which can also be found in this 2-pack- Kung Fu Superman/Muscle of the Dragon And I apologize for not going over all of the movies in more detail. It was painful to try and watch all of them.
For what it is, an amazing package!

"If you have read the other reviews, you know that the picture quality is bad and the fights scenes are pretty much terrible. I would just like to add the fact that you probably aren't buying these for a quality film. First of all, any DVD package that says "Grindhouse Experience Presents" is pretty much a giant warning sign saying that the picture quality will suck, that acting will probably be terrible, and that the movie overall will be bad. Another warning sign would be that fact that you get ten films for eighteen bucks. Overall, these films are terrible, but if you like "Grindhouse" films, this is great; if you are looking for good quality, find something else."
Don't Be Fooled...VideoAsia is HUSTLIN'!

"I've just given in to the temptation to pic up this "10 film dvd set" under the assumption that it was a remastered, repackaged re-release of films featured in the Return of the Dragon Pack and Fist of Fury Legacy collection, both released in 2003-04 by Video Asia. Don't let the additions of Kung Fu Superman and Muscle of the Dragon fool you...if you already own the Return of the Dragon Pack and Fist of Fury Legacy, you'll want to save your money because once you open the box, you'll find those 2 series and a double feature containing Kung-Fu Superman and Muscle of the Dragon and slap yourself miserably for assuming that VideoAsia would give us an upgrade(ie, Star of Stars with ALL of the widescreen feature and subtitles, Enter the Game of Death WITHOUT the shakiness of the picture,etc). Good films...except for The Dragon Lives Again...but nothing new. For reviews of the other films, lookup the Return of the Dragon Pack and Fist of Fury Legacy individually."
