“The nice die young, because they’re NOT smart!”

Snake & Crane Arts of Shaolin is an excellent example of what happens when “the Secret Book,” isn’t really all that secret. The leaders of the various Shaolin Clans pool their knowledge & experience to create the “Eight Steps of the Snake & Crane,” a technically superior style capable of defeating all but the most advanced Kung fu. With the details recorded in a manual, the masters retire to discuss Kung fu over dinner.  Unfortunately, as is often the case, a masked thief decides to murder the masters, & steal the manual for himself. He fails to obtain it, but the sudden disappearance of so many leaders destabilizes the world of martial arts & leads to constantly shifting alliances among all concerned parties. Friend & foe become difficult to distinguish, as the various clans search for the masters & the manual. Jackie Chan stars in this action packed, though seemingly little known, jem as Xu Yinfeng, a mysterious stranger with unconquerable skills. Who is Xu? How did he obtain the Manual? What is the fate of the masters? And who is the mysterious Masked Man?
