Taiwan Noir 30: A Book Of Heroes & A Heroic Fight

The director of Fantasy Mission Force scales down the genre bending and time warp madness and goes for a stripped down, broad comedy about a treasure hunt highlighted by frequent action choreography featuring among others Yukari Oshima. A Book Of Heroes from 1986 starts off this episode of Taiwan Noir and in the second half a family of special effects wizards that take on the triads. It’s called A Heroic Fight, also from 1986. With Kenny B and Todd Stadtman.
