5.0 out of 5 stars If you've seen Drunken Master 1, watch this now! March 7, 1999
By A Customer
This film has Jackie and Simon Yuen Siu Tien (Su Huan Chi from DM)teaming together again. Jackie plays an orphan who is indentured at a kung fu school. At the school he does chores and gets used as a punching bag. One day in the street, he runs into an old beggar who teaches him the Snake Fist style. The Eagle Claw clan wishes to wipe out the weaker Snake Fist style users, so Jackie develops his own style of Cat's Claw. Simon Yuen Siu Tien is great in this movie, possibly better than he was in Drunken Master. There is an incredible scene at the beginning where he balances a bowl on his hands, feet, and head while Jackie tries to grab it. The action in this is great, as well as the plot. Do yourself a favor and watch this. (But don't watch Snake in the Eagle's Shadow II, Jackie's not even in it).

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Jackie films ever January 12, 1999
Format:VHS Tape
Together with "Drunken Master", Snake in the Eagle's Shadow launched Jackie's career. Not to be confused with the "sequel", Snake in the Eagle's Shadow II, which to my knowledge doesn't even have Jackie in it. The Eagle Claw style has embarked on a quest to eradicate the Snake Fist style, and almost succeeds before the last living Snake Fist master passes the art on to Jackie. Jackie's character is quite cinderella-like, an orphan kept by the master as a janitor. picked on and abused by the other instructors when the master is away, he gets even after learning kung-fu from the Snake Fist master, played by Simon Yuen. the Eagle Claw master / main villian is played by Hwang Jang Lee, one of the best screen fighters ever. Tino Wong also does some excellent fighting as the arrogant county kung-fu champion. Beautifully choreographed fights and a fair amount of laughs make this a must for any Jackie fan.

1.0 out of 5 stars Wow - this really *is* a cheap bootleg - DO NOT BUY!!! August 28, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase

Seriously. I figured the few people who had reported this were kooks, but they're not - this *is* a bootleg, and a terrible one at that. You can find better bootlegs on streetcorners in NY. The cover is obviously photocopied, and the disc itself is a DVD-R that comes conveniently pre-scratched. Worse than that, though, is the fact that this is *obviously* a rip of a VHS tape that was poorly transferred and completely uncropped. I'll be filing a complaint with Amazon.

1.0 out of 5 stars The copy Amazon is selling is not the right movie January 21, 2008
I've purchase and received this movie twice and when i insert the movie in my dvd it's not the right movie that's playing. It's some person having a concert. Is anyone else having this problem, shame on Amazon for distributing illegal dvd copies and selling it to customers.

5.0 out of 5 stars A kung-fu masterpiece June 9, 1999
This film has everything a good martial arts movie needs, besides kick-a!@ fighting scenes, to be venerated as a classic- a decent and touching story, good plot points, and great actors. Jackie Chan, Simon Yuen (Sam Seed from Drunken Master) and the incomparable kicking master Hwang Jang Lee bka Silver Fox along with brilliant director/choreographer Yuen Woo Ping bring this karate-kid type story to life believably (minus the Russian assassin/priest whose dubbed voice is to quote the Chess King Jack Long "reprehensible" yet regaling). A must have for any martial arts fan.... Purchase!

5.0 out of 5 stars The movie that made Jackie a legend January 21, 1999
Format:VHS Tape
This has to be one of Jackies best old school movies. Classic Jackie fighting and the crazy Snake in the Eagles shadow technique make this a legend. Also those massive chopsticks Jackie's mentor used were amazing. Jackie is a young servent who is taught the snake technique by a wandering mentor. But the Eagle clan has vowed to kill everyone who knows the art of the snake. Unlucky for them, Jackie comes up with his own technique. The Cats Claw. In this movie a stunt went wrong and Jackie has his arm slashed. The original footage is still in the movie. Arm the Homeless

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible Picture and Audio Quality! DO NOT BUY! January 6, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This DVD is probably a bootleg. The video quality is that of very old VHS and it only has the English dub as available audio. I deserve the money wasted that I spent on this piece of trash. The box art should have tipped me off.

Fingers crossed for a better release of this classic movie.

2.0 out of 5 stars This is not the original! June 18, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
...The original Snake in the Eagle's BRILLIANT. But the movie being offered is Snake in the Eagle's Shadow II, which is nowhere near as good.
