Product Description

Amazon.ca

Jackie Chan apprenticed in a series of straight-faced martial arts revenge films before he found his true calling as the clown prince of kung fu in Snake in the Eagle's Shadow and the original Drunken Master. The sprawling clan-war conspiracy adventure Snake & Crane Arts of Shaolin is one of his best pre-fame efforts, a tale of tenuous alliances and double-crosses, with cocky young warrior Jackie in the middle stirring up trouble. The sly rascal in the den of thieves, however, is actually an honorable young acolyte on a mission of vengeance. It's the usual story, with a little more comedy and plenty of old "strike and pose" fight scenes energized by Jackie's youthful athleticism. The opening theme song was cribbed from the same music library that supplied Monty Python and the Holy Grail. --Sean Axmaker

Before obtaining more artistic control over his films, Jackie Chan churned out several low budget chop-socky flicks fo Lo-Wei, director of Bruce Lee's "The Chinese Connection". Despite this rather impressive credit, Lo-Wei possessed unfounded delusions of competence. The vast majority of the Chan films that he directed have only one bright spot: Jackie Chan. By far, "Snake and Crane Arts of Shaolin" is the best of these early Chan films. "Snake and Crane" focuses on various kung-fu schools and factions fighting Chan for the possession of a martial arts instructional book. (The story is better than it sounds.) At any rate, this means that the entire movie becomes one long fight scene after another, interspersed with comical attempts to "charm" the book out of Chan. Chan's co-stars all fight and act with some credibility, an element often absent in other Lo-Wei efforts. If possible, I would give "Snake and Crane Arts of Shaolin" 3 & 1/2 stars. Since I rate Bruce Lee's "The Chinese Connection" at 4 stars, this should give some indication of the quality of "Snake and Crane."

I think this movie has pretty good looking kung fu, especially at the end of the movie. You won't believe how long the last fight scene is-nearly seven minutes long! The other fight scenes throughout this movie are okay, although sometimes the movements seem a bit slow. Though the action is good, I think everything else pretty much stinks. I mean when there isn't any fighting, the movie is just plain boring. The storyline just isn't interesting enough. Throughout the movie, Jackie meets like a whole bunch of stupid characters. The most annoying one is this stupid old man who keeps appearing from nowhere. The movie also has very bad lighting. In some parts of the movie, like in the dark, you can't even see anything. If you like watching kung fu, and don't care about a stupid storyline, then you should go and buy this one. You can watch the movie over and over again just for the amazing fight scenes.

this movie's plot is weak and steriotypical, the dubbing is [bad] and Jackie barely smiles, but the kung fu, which is what I bought it for in the first place, is excellent.
I study both the snake and the crane styles of shaolin and I must say, aside form all the cartwheels and usuall razzle dazzle of movie kung fu, the coreography, (which Chan was highly involved in) was excellent and mostly true to the real styles of shaolin.
If you like alot of action, blood and childish swear words dubbed in to movie then buy this.
It's excellent

This is, hands down the best Jackie kung-fu movie ever made! It has some of the best fight scenes ever filmed and the story is actually very good and has somewhat of a twist ending. By far, this is the ULTIMATE JACKIE WUP-[rear]S movie! This film was done before Jackie found a sence of humor, and he lets loose on all who oppose him, even the chicks(they are awesome kung-fu in their own right). All the action leads up to my favorite fight scene at the end.... DO NOT PASS UP THIS MOVIE!!!!! If you are thinking, don't! Just buy it!
