Movie Info

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.

  • Chan ranges from the casual, one handed beat down (which he often performs without even standing up or breaking a sweat) to the all out, weapon-wielding, man-throwing, face-kicking melee that the best and the worst films of this kind have in spades.

Audience Reviews for Snake and Crane Arts of Shaolin (She hao ba bu)

  • Mar 07, 2007
    Wonderful and best old school kung fu movie, period. Never a dull moment in this film with the action happening right from the beginning. The fight sequences are probably the best I have ever seen - and I've seen a fair few! Jackie Chan is completely convincing as a kung fu master, he is incredible.

    One of Jackie's first slapstick martial arts comedies - an early look at chinese movie history being made.
