Podcast On Fire 222: Righting Wrongs & Aces Go Places

pofRIGHTINGACES

Hong Kong cinema is the cinema of contrasts, often in the same movie but this week, dark is kept to one movie and light within the other. Starting with Corey Yuen’s dark actioner Righting Wrongs where Yuen Biao loses faith in the justice system. And in the second half, the review of Cinema City’s cashcow Aces Go Places. Classic leading man pairing, comedy and internationally flavored stunt work, Hong Kong audiences loved the mix. With Kenny B and Paul Fox of the East Screen West Screen podcast.

In the wake of Bruce Lee’s death, there was popularity at its peak and savvy producers, high profile or not, started to exploit the image of him by casting other people looking semi to not similiar at all.

When Golden Harvest decided to try and structure a movie around Bruce’s unfinished movie Game Of Death, the result was big and high profile and find out in this episode how this attempt at honoring the late great Lee fares as several actors playing Lee (along with footage from elsewhere) gather for 1978’s Game Of Death. With Kenny B and East Screen West Screen‘s Paul Fox.
