Kung-fu makes a splash in America via Bruce Lee, via King Boxer but a Taiwanese Wuxia from 1971 unexpectedly dazzled audiences as well. Armed with an array of deadly kung fu killers and a promotional campaign for the ages, in 1973 Fearless Fighters came to America. Also, kung fu cinema in the third dimension in 1977’s Dynasty. With Kenny B and Todd Stadtman.

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.
