Pardon the sound quality of the show (this stuff was all too good to lose), in particular from Ken’s end and do note Stoo switches to his iPhone 30 mins into the show so that’s why his sound quality worsens.

Note; This is when I first started reviewing, when glancing over it looks pretty dire. I apologise now for completly leaving Brigitte Lin out of the review. A possible re-review in the future.

Plot (HKL Edition): Featuring an all-star cast led by acrobatics genius Yuen Biao, ‘Zu Warriors’ depicts the adventures of a young solider caught in a war between two rival armies.
