Synopsis

Box set containing three popular martial arts movies. 'Kung Pow - Enter the Fist' (2001) is writer/director and creator of 'thumbation', Steve Oedekerk's take on the martial art film genre. Using an exisiting Seventies Hong Kong film, adding new scenes, special effects and his own dialogue, Oedekerk's plays the 'Chosen One', a legendary warrior who has spent years wandering the country in search of Master Pain (aka Betty) to wreak revenge. 'Bulletproof Monk' (2003) stars Chow Yun-Fat as a mysterious, nameless monk who, 60 years earlier, was appointed the guardian of an ancient scroll that grants unlimited power to its possessor. After travelling across the world for more than half a century to protect the scroll, the monk is looking for someone new to take on the responsibility, and he is convinced that Kar (Seann William Scott), a self-absorbed street kid from San Francisco, is the man he's looking for. But as the monk begins to train Kar in the roles and responsibilities of being the new scrollkeeper, the pair find out they have a rival, who just happens to be a kung fu master - can they ever defeat him? In 'Kiss of the Dragon' (2002), Liu Jian (Jet Li) is a Chinese government agent who has been sent to France to assist in the arrest of a Chinese heroin smuggler. But when he arrives he is framed for murder by corrupt French police detective Jean-Pierre Richard (Tchéky Karyo) and forced to go on the run in a bid to prove his innocence. When he meets Jessica (Bridget Fonda), a prostitute whose daughter Isabel is being held captive by Richard, Liu offers to get Isabel back if Jessica will help expose Richard's corruption. Jessica agrees and much martial arts mayhem follows.
