2.0 out of 5 stars The Weird the Bad and the Ugly December 23, 2006
By Heather
Format:DVD
These are five of the worst movies I have ever seen.

The only one worth the plastic it is encoded on is Master with Cracked Fingers. Even that contains scenes blatently chopped from Drunken Master (a true Chan classic), and for the grand finale Jackie has mysteriously disappeared, replaced by a barely adequate stand-in.

In Young Tiger, Jackie is miscast in an uncomfortable bad-guy role with a horrible, hairy mole on his cheek.

Fantasy Mission Force is just plain bizarre, with Chan appearing only occassionally. At least when he does show up, he's in classic Jackie Chan form. This is in stark contrast to his unfortunate roles in Young Tiger and Eagle Shadow Fist.

Eagle Shadow Fist is a fairly standard kung fu flick...in which Jackie is killed off in the first half of the movie. I can't comment on the rest of the movie because I turned it off after that.

Fire Dragon is, perhaps, the worst of all. It isn't even its own movie, it is a hacked up, alternate version of Fantasy Mission Force. Many scenes were blatantly chopped from Fantasy Mission Force and dropped awkwardly into Fire Dragon, overdubbed with completely different English dialogue. Weird! Fantasy Mission Force was bizarre to begin with, but hacked up and rearranged into Fire Dragon, it is completely baffling.

The only way I could recommend anybody to ever purchase this set of films, is if you really want to own five of the worst movies you'll ever see. Fantasy Mission Force, and its hacked up sibling, Fire Dragon, are so incredibly strange and awful, they're almost worth watching on that basis alone. Master with Cracked Fingers has its moments, but is ultimately disappointing on several levels (not the least of which is Jackie's absence in the big finale).

1.0 out of 5 stars Hoax wrapped in what seems like a quality 3-Pack October 4, 2000
Format:DVD
I ordered The DVD "Jackie Chan 3-Pack" [DVD] only because it was supposed to include the movie "Drunken Master", a real classic I have been on the lookout ever since I got into DVDs. The "Jackie Chan 3-Pack" are 3 DVDs handsomely packed and the discs themselves are attractively overprinted, but alas, even though in one place "Drunken Master" is mentioned, it is not in this pack. What the pack really includes are three DVDs of the worst quality imaginable!!! Even worse than than a 4 time re-recorded Video tape movie re-recorded on some inferior quality tape!!! My disappointment was replaced by a feeling of insult and and I was overcome by the impulse to quietly discard these DVDs deep down at the bottom of the garbage can. Actually I took a chance ordering these DVDs because nowhere was there any information about them on the web only the vague mentioning of the "drunken Master" as being one of the pack. Which of course it is not!!! Now maybe other Jackie Chan fans will know better.

1.0 out of 5 stars run away! November 4, 2008
Format:DVD
If you are a Jackie Chan fan then you will vomit when you see the films in this "collection". They are horrible and this one is certain that Mr. Chan would like nothing more thten to have them disappear.
This "collection" of garbage was a huge disappointment and this one would never recommend this to anyone under any circumstances.
The person who produced this set should be hunted down and publically flogged while being forced to repeatedly watch each second of each disc without mercy. Surely, that must be what hell is like!

1.0 out of 5 stars I now have a new top 3... February 12, 2002
By SiC
Format:DVD
in the top 5 WORST DVD TRANSFERS I OWN!!!
This set is absolutely the pits, it's awful the quality is unwatchable, Fantasy mission force has not only film errors but also video lines and colourerrors with the picture shifting up and down. I've watched all three dvds they are all as bad they all look like EP copies of EP bootleg tapes of work prints DO NOT! I repeat DO NOT BUY THIS SET! It is awful it is even worse than the Slipstream DVD and the UK DVD of Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers, this beats them all hands down in terms of ....

3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite as horrible as all that November 8, 2011
Format:DVD
I think whether or not you enjoy this collection depends largely on what you expect. If you believe the blatantly deceiving ad copy, and think you are going to get some rare classic Jackie Chan gems for this price, you will no doubt be quite disappointed.

This collection is better thought of as the "Before he was famous Jackie Chan collection," and as such delivers footage not to be found elsewhere of a young and sometimes very young Jackie Chan, before he rated star billing. This is the sort of collection for a die hard Jackie fan who wants to be able to say to a friend "Hey, check out this old movie I found with Jackie Chan in it, but as a bad guy..." Or a sidekick, or whatever.

And yes, as I said, the ad copy for this set is deceiving. It says "rare and astounding," but I think it is only rare because much of the footage is probably from the cutting room floor, and astounding because although it is billed as a Jackie Chan collection, Jackie is only the star of one of the films, and that one is a re-edit of a much more familiar film. One film is even a rehash of another in this same collection, and in it Jackie only appears using the same footage with a different English dub, and where they needed to otherwise use his character, the camera only shows the back of a double's head. The packaging of this collection is deceiving as well, being full of stills from much later Jackie Chan movies. I think the deception, however, is on the part of Madacy Entertainment, the company selling the videos, and not on the part of Amazon.

As far as the films themselves being "the worst," or whatever, I think they are in general pretty standard for at least the B movies of the era and the genre.
