Some of the titles in MARTIAL ARTS 50 MOVIE PACK are so obscure, very little information could be gotten about them. A couple of selections here are from a long-forgotten American TV series. There's even a few spaghetti-karate films thrown into the mix. The majority however originate in the Far East: Hong Kong, Japan, Taiwan and the Philippines.

Lots of choreography went into the making of these movies; undoubtedly, there were a few unintentional injuries along the way, too. The action and pratfalls are non-stop and the plots mere window dressing for the foot-to-head combat scenes. For all martial arts fans these cinematic slugfests are sure-to-please.

Overall rating was achieved by averaging out viewer polling on 42 of these titles. Based on a film resource website's 1 to 10 scoring system, the current rating for MARTIAL ARTS is: 4.8.

The following alphabetized program list includes individual poll scores, original theatrical names (where indicated), country of origin, years of release and primary performers.

(5.0) The Big Fight (Taiwan/Hong Kong-1972) - Roc Tien/Cheung Chin Chin

I had intended to give this dvd set as a Christmas gift but I don't think I can. The quality of the films is terrible - can barely view on a 12inch computer screen!! And the sound is so horrible! The Bruce Lee movie is documentary type and he is one of the few known actors in this series. Not recommended.

Craptacular! 16 Feb. 2007
By Lo Wang - Published on
Format: DVD
This collection is well worth every penny you'll spend on it, as long you enjoy this film genre. Personally, these movies evoke more laughter for me than most of the comedies being currently released. Some of the movies don't really qualify as martial arts movies - in particular, I'm referring to Black Cobra 1, 2, and 3 - three of the worst movies ever made. These movies, starring former NFL player Fred "The Hammer" Williamson would more appropriately be categorized as action movies, although there isn't a Hell of a lot of action in them. I digress. The point is that there are maybe 3 punches thrown in the entire first movie. It's definitely not a martial arts movie. Most of the movies in this collection, however, are exactly what you would expect. In particular, there are three movies, Ninja Death 1, 2, and 3 that are so awful that they border on greatness. I'm not a film student, so I couldn't tell you what the filming technique is called wherein the "actors" fight in slow-motion, and then the film is sped up to make the fights look like they are taking place at a normal speed. The director of these Ninja Death movies sped the fights up too much, and the result is that every battle looks like an episode of the Benny Hill show. I put these kind of crappy movies on at night to fall asleep to (spaghetti westerns and cheesy horror flicks work well also), but Ninja Death kept me awake and laughing. None of the movies in this collection are big budget - they are all old, and the sound and picture quality is poor, but that adds, not detracts, to the experience of watching them. If you "get" these kinds of films, you absolutely can't go wrong spending the money on this collection.

I was looking through the list of movies surprised to see that all 20 movies that I bought in a 20 pack are in this 50 pack. And now I punching myself in the head this very momentttt because I REALLY WISH I WOULD HAVE JUST PAYED LIKE 20 DOLLARS OR WHATEVER IT WAS EXTRA BECUASE THERE WERE ONLY LIKE 3 GOOD MOVIES IN THE 20 PACK, BUT THERE IS LIKE 10 GOOD ONES IN THIS FREAKING 50 PACK.

Let me go over what I am talking about.

20 pack has ninja death 1, 50 pack actually has the sequels part 2 and 3.

50 pack has guy with secret kungfu with meng fei, 20 pack doesn't.

50 pack has a chow yunfat and a jackie chan movie, 20 pack doesn't.

Now I'm 99% sure that the jackie and chow movies suck balls, but that is why you go exploring. In the 20 pack I found one of the greatest kungfu movies ever, shadow ninja, which is of course in the 50 pack, what the real name of it is I don't know, but I do know that I would buy it at like best buy for up to 25 dollars because it is rare and AWESOME. So that is a major reason to buy this collection, and if somebody finds out if chow and jackie are actually in this collection and what the movies are like THEN PLEASE POST THAT AT THE LEAST.

Now the main reason I wanted to post a review on her is because I saw Shaolin Heroes on there and have not seen this movie in SOOOOOOOOOOO many years it is likely I will throw away my 20 pack and get this thing because I saw it as a kid and had no idea that there are 2 parts to this. I can't remember if I saw one or two but I do remember seeing a pretty good kungfu movie. CHen sing I remember as the good guy, so that stood out for me, but the thing that really sttod out for me was Lieh Lo(pei mei) and Hwang Jang Lee(druinken master) as the bad guys. I wish america had an equivilent to these two guys, but I just don't find hannibalector that scary. The only possible way that they could have made this movie better is if they added Johhny Wang(Lung Fei) as a third bad guy. Now this movie I remember has a little more of a storyline than normal kungfu, but if I could sit through the slow moments as a kid, I know that I can now.

Also the dvd quality of these are all pretty good, all full-screened I think, but probably around 2-3 will be almost unwatchable like chase step by step, but it is still watchable if you wanna see a semi-original kungfu movie, but still VERY good.

So whoever has this please take the time to review all of the movies that you think are worth watching. Because heroes of Shaolin is a LONG forgotten kungfu movie that definitely needs to be discovered as does shadow ninja with shen yi-kwan(jet's opponent in OUATIC 1), and ninja death 1 2 and 3 with alexander lo rei and Lu feng(the centipede). And I know that everyone wants to see the Karate Kids starring the great Charles Lane. Now if you are not familiar with Charles Lane, then you are in for a big surprise. Charles Lane is a grandmas--yeah I know just kidding...

SO DO NOT BUY THE 20 PACK GET THIS AND THEN YOU WON'T HAVE TO SPEND LIKE A YEAR TO GET NINJA DEATH 2 AND 3 LIKE i DID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

fun, action and unintentional laughs 26 April 2013
By William D Wolford - Published on
Format: DVD
Mill Creek has become the king of public domain movies. They've done well in getting us movie lovers to buy their different movie box sets by packaging them so the cost versus the amount of material your getting becomes irresistible. I've never been much of a fan of kung-fu movies, or martial arts films, but when Mill Creek decided to put out fifty martial arts films in a box set for fifteen dollars, it was impossible to resist. If I ended up liking even one movie on the set, the price would be worth it. Well, I found some that I liked, some that were so bad they were good, and some that were just embarrassingly bad all around. But needless to say, I have enough martial arts films in my collection now to last me quite some time. So let's take a look at each film in this fifty pack and see what there is for you to enjoy.

Note: All films in this set are in color, so I won't be putting that in the individual synopsis.

1.Kung Fu Arts-A loyal follower of the Emperor, who is engaged to his daughter, overhears a plot to assassinate him by the Emperor's aide. The aide wishes to make himself Emperor once he's disposed of the royal family but the soon to be son-in-law foils the assassination attempt.

Three years pass and a police officer working on the case will stop at nothing to retrieve the map pieces and bring the gang to justice. (Fullscreen-Audio:Fair, Video:Fair (Scratchy)

And there is another fifty films from Mill Creek Entertainment to feast on. This set had definite good and bad points for me. On the good side, even though a lot of the films audio and video were "fair", there was not one movie that was so bad that I could not watch it, unlike several of the other sets. The gripe may be a personal one, but it got under my skin that a couple of the trilogies were on separate discs, or were out of order (i.e. part two, three, and then one). Like I said, maybe it's a personal thing, but all the prints are right there, put them in the right order! Anyway, as I said in the beginning, this will satisfy my martial arts cravings for some time to come, and people should pick this up for some fun, action and unintentional laughs. 6/10.

everybody is kung-fu fighting for really low price 5 Jan. 2006
By movie hound john - Published on
Format: DVD
i have reviewed many of the 50 movie packs and have found most of them enjoyable and this one is no different. most of these films were never seen except on saturday noon kung-fu theater so don't look for clean crisp transfers here but if you enjoy these types of movies you will love this set. not all the films are family friendly so watch out, and enjoy.
