"Heroes of the East" next to 5 Deadly Venoms this is my favorite Shaw Brothers film. I loved the way it compares Japanese styles of weapons fighting to Chinese kung fu styles & weapons...Also rare to see Gordon Liu with hair. Director Run Run Shaw doesn't disappoint! Some of my favorite Chinese martial arts movies are when they go against the invading & arrogant Japanese. However I am equally fascinated by Japanese people & culture
In memory of the late, legendary producer Sir Run Run Shaw (of the Shaw Brothers), the trailer to the classic Shaw Brothers martial arts action rom-com Heroes of the East, from the star and director of 36 Chambers of Shaolin. Think Scott Pilgrim thirty years early.
