Synopsis

Snake and Crane Arts of Shaolin
Jackie Chan stars in this straight-ahead kung fu saga directed Chen Chi-hua. The film opens with eight Shaolin masters developing a new, powerful martial-arts technique and writing the form down into a tome called "The Eight Steps of the Snake and Crane." Soon thereafter, the eight masters and the book vanish. Years later, young street punk Hsu Ying Fung (Chan) winds up with the book and has mastered the entire form. Hungry for its secrets, members from a sundry of clans try to seize the book. As it turns out, this is all a plan by the original eight's sole survivor and Hsu's master to suss out who killed his colleagues. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi

Magnificent Bodyguards
Jackie Chan stars in this period martial arts yarn -- which was originally shot in 3-D -- as Ting Chung, a kung-fu master summoned by a beautiful princess to shepherd her and her ailing brother through the notoriously dangerous "Stormy Hills" to a legendary doctor on the other side. Ting quickly realizes that danger is literally at every turn, and he is forced to contend with murderous fake monks, bandits of every stripe and shape, and a trap-laden temple. When their journey is nearly complete, Ting learns that his clients have not been truthful regarding the real reason of their journey. James Tien and Leung Siu Lung also appear. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi
