Taiwan Noir 28: Dragon Ball: The Magic Begins & Fantasy Mission Force

Taiwan filmmakers bring to life the manga and anime sensation Dragon Ball as Dragon Ball: The Magic Begins and we also review Chu Yen-ping’s Dirty Dozen style adventure with mahjong playing hopping vampires that arrives in the form of Fantasy Mission Force. Described by many as bonkers and the worst Jackie Chan movie ever. With Kenny B and Todd Stadtman.
