A three disc Jet Li blu ray boxset of three of his most beloved action films: THE ENFORCER (1995) directed by Corey Yuen (a.k.a My Father is a Hero), DR WAI IN “THE SCRIPTURE WITH NO WORDS" (1996) directed by Ching Siu Tung and HITMAN (1998) directed by Stephen Tung Wai.
After the massive success of the ONCE UPON A TIME IN CHINA series, Jet Li moved away from period settings and started to focus on action films set in the modern-era, a decision that would lead him to Hollywood and make him an international icon and one of the biggest stars in the history of martial arts cinema.
In THE ENFORCER Li is an undercover police officer tracking down a notorious Hong Kong crime lord. Teaming up with his martial-arts prodigy son and a female officer (Anita Mui), together they lay down the law!
In DR WAI IN “THE SCRIPTURE WITH NO WORDS" a down-on-his-luck pulp fiction author (Li) lives vicariously through one of his characters, an Indiana Jones-esque adventurer searching for a mythical scripture.
Then, in HITMAN (aka Contract Killer), Li plays Tai Feng, a young assassin with a “sense of justice” who crosses paths with the “King of Killers” — a legendary vigilante with a huge bounty on his head.
Eureka Classics is proud to present three of Jet Li’s most beloved action films on Blu-ray for the first time ever in the UK.
