The following synopsis are taken from the Press Release...
MIA's Old Skool Kung Fu label presents two more classics of the genre from the studio of Joseph Kuo (The 18 Bronzemen; The Unbeaten 28; The Smart Cavalier) – SHAOLIN DEATH SQUAD and THE REBEL OF SHAOLIN – both starring world-renowned martial arts superstars Carter Wong (Big Trouble In Little China; Return Of The 18 Bronzemen), Chang Yi (The 18 Bronzemen) and Polly Shang Kwan (The 18 Bronzemen).
When a Manchu conspiracy to overthrow the Ming dynasty is thwarted by a group of Shaolin disciples and patriots, a fierce battle to defend the life of the King ensues, with deadly results. Highlighting the dazzling Double Swords style and Meteor Whip techniques of kung fu, SHAOLIN DEATH SQUAD features superb action choreography from Cliff Lok and Chan Siu Pang, the team responsible for the classic "The 18 Bronzemen".
THE REBEL OF SHAOLIN sees Carter Wong and the incredible Chang Yi starring in this epic tale of the courageous titular hero. Fighting to uphold justice and to challenge the tyranny of the Manchu Warlords, the ‘Rebel of Shaolin' comes up against a deadly traitor who stands in his way and threatens to destroy the very Temple that trained him. Outstanding action set-pieces and breathtaking fight sequences make THE REBEL OF SHAOLIN a kung fu movie to remember.
