Unboxing Shout Factory’s JACKIE CHAN COLLECTION VOL. 1 Blu-ray Box Set
New on Blu-ray this week, Shout! Factory brings the Jackie Chan Collection Vol. 1, rounding up seven classic early-era Jackie — and still “Jacky” — flicks, from a time when the superstar was transitioning from more traditional kung fu to his own brand of comedic acrobatics, and hadn’t yet made major inroads to American audiences.
- The Killer Meteors
- Shaolin Wooden Men
- To Kill with Intrigue
- Snake & Crane Arts of Shaolin
- Dragon Fist
- Battle Creek Brawl (aka The Big Brawl)
- Dragon Lord, included in both standard and extended cuts.
Collectors may remember there was a time when you could pull battered, barebones DVDs of many of these titles out of Walmart bins for $5, but those days are long gone and most of these have become increasingly difficult to purchase and watch.
Shout’s new boxed set brings these classic films back, and to Blu-ray for the first time, along with commentaries, interviews, trailers, and other new extras that you wouldn’t have found on those old value-bin editions.
In addition to the seven classic feature films, an eighth film is included: a feature-length documentary entitled The Golden Boy: Harvesting a Major New Martial Arts Maverick.
Here’s our detailed pictorial of what’s in the package.
