We go back and examine Tsui Hark’s groundbreaking special effects extravaganza Zu: Warriors From The Magic Mountain to see whether its Chinese roots mixed with Western special effects knowhow still has a place in Hong Kong cinema history and Sammo Hung reverses kung fu comedy tropes while also making his characters rage and beat the crap out of each other in exemplary fashion… in his 1980 movie The Victim. With Kenny B and Paul Fox of the East Screen West Screen podcast.
