Accepting Cameron Yee's challenge, here is a "movie haiku" for this collection:

Budgets are low, but
Afros and platforms are high.
Jim Kelly kicks hard.

I'm really annoyed they couldn't even stick on the trailers for these films.  I guess that would have taken them about 5 minutes to find.  The Black Belt Jones trailer ("He's Back and He's Black!") alone is worth the price of the set.

...and the tagline for Three the Hard Way is even better: "Action explodes all over the place when the big three join forces to save their race". 

"Black Samson - he's mean and clean and rules the scene" ain't too shabby either.

Here are links to the trailers available on YouTube:

Three the Hard Way:

Black Belt Jones:

Black Samson:
