Podcast On Fire 201: Wheels On Meals & Crippled Avengers

pof201

From Hong Kong to Spain and back to Hong Kong and back in time again, for this episode we follow the three brothers (i.e. Jackie Chan, Sammo Hung and Yuen Biao) as they take their martial arts action comedy formula to Spain and into a meal-van in Wheels On Meals. And we then transfer from 1984 to 1978 and onto the Shaw Brothers lot where director Chang Cheh were building iron men to fight each other essentially, in Crippled Avengers. The Venoms are back and are now handicapped fighters.
