A big revelation, Heroes of the East, is one of the best martial arts films I've ever seen. Doesn't sound like it when I say that it's The Taming of the Shrew with martial arts, does it? Or that no one dies in the whole picture? And yet it kicks ass 20 different ways. It stars Gordon Liu, lately better known as Pai Mei in Kill Bill, as a Chinese husband whose Japanese wife doesn't care about his stupid kung fu. Through a comedy of errors, he winds up having to defeat 7 masters of Japanese weapons and styles. Pretty great. 4 years 4 months ago
